South Carolina was down 6-0 to Clemson on Sunday but battled back to tie it at seven in the ninth. The Hopkins three-run home run started it and runs in the sixth and eighth helped. In the top of the ninth, LT Tolbert doubled to the gap in right to cut Clemson's lead to 7-6 and Chris Cullen tied it with a sacrifice fly. Clemson went on to win, 8-7, on an RBI triple in the ninth.
