    Game one in the books, capitalized on several Clemson errors for a 5 spot in the fifth and that was pretty much the difference. I thought both starters looked good, Barnes got dinked to death in the 5th but otherwise was solid.

    That Beer kid looks special, Thunder. To think he should still be playing high school ball only makes it more impressive. Saw several of your guys with sweet swings, just didn't connect for the most part last night.

    Game 2 today in G Vegas, expecting this one to be close.

    We're looking like shit. After Friday and being undefeated I had high hopes for this team. Holbrook is never going to get it done and I'm sick of seeing him in the dugout. I am very bitter about CH not being fired last season and Carolina picking up Monte Lee. Lee is going to have a winning record against South Carolina in just his first season and will own us for years.

    And we just lost the series to a middle of the pack ACC team. Another long year for Gamecock baseball. At least the basketball team still has some fight left in them.

    Meh, I'm not willing to call the season a bust just yet. Pitching did pretty good this weekend, just got cut out all the free passes given on walks and hit batters; if I recall, Clemson got 18 baserunners by walk or HBP during the series. When you consider that our staff held them to a team batting average of .204, it's not like the pitchers were getting crushed per se. In the end, Clemson got more xtra base hits and more hits with RISP, a lot of that's just baseball.

    We still struggle against off-speed pitching though, something that's remained a problem since Holbrook took over. Got to improve there if we're going to make any sort of run in the conference schedule. It's still early, though. Plenty of time to improve.

    And we just swept a top 15 Arky team. That only means we're going to lose the series next weekend because basically, that's what Jekyl and Hyde Holbrook teams do. I won't say I'm giving up on them, but I'm not going put too much emotion into this team either.

    We won't win another SEC series until April.
