South Carolina tops Florida again – NCAA.com

OMAHA, Neb. — South Carolina clinched its second consecutive national championship with a performance different from most of its others at this year’s College World Series.

No drama was necessary.

Michael Roth pitched 7 2-3 innings on three days’ rest and the Gamecocks were in control throughout a 5-2 victory against Florida that completed a two-game sweep in the CWS finals Tuesday night.

“We’re not the most talented team, and we don’t have the best players position for position,” Roth said, “but we go out and stick together as a team. We battle. I can’t describe it. We’re a bunch of average Joes and love each other and come out and battle.”

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 consecutive victories 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.
