South Carolina Win 2nd Straight National Championship

The South Carolina Gamecocks followed up their first ever NCAA baseball national championship last year with another one this year. Last night, the Gamecocks finished off their sweep of SEC rival Florida in a 5-2 victory to take home the 2011 College World Series title. Gamecock ace Michael Roth was brilliant on only 3 days of rest, throwing a solid 7 and 2/3 innings. Matt Price worked 1 and 1/3 innings for his 20th save, and 2nd in as many nights. Here is more from the AP and espn.com.

South Carolina (55-14) became the first team to ever go 10-0 in an NCAA tournament and the first since Oregon State in 2007 to go unbeaten in a CWS.

The Gamecocks’ streaks of 16 NCAA tournament wins and 11 straight in the CWS are both the longest all-time.South Carolina has the distinction of winning the last CWS played at Rosenblatt Stadium and the first at TD Ameritrade Park.The Gamecocks’ streaks of 16 NCAA tournament wins and 11 straight in the CWS are both the longest all-time.

The Gamecocks baseball program have put themselves in the NCAA record books. South Carolina has great memories of Rosenblatt stadium, and after last night, created more great memories for the new home of the College World Series, TD Ameritrade Park.

South Carolina second basemen Scott Wingo was the best player in Omaha from the start of the CWS until the final pitch last night. His bat was strong, but his defensive play in the field was even better.
