Baseball: South Carolina blanks Auburn 2-0

South Carolina's Sam Dyson threw seven shutout innings as the No. 14 Gamecocks blanked the Tigers 2-0 at Plainsman Park on Saturday. South Carolina clinched its 11th straight series victory over Auburn, dating back to 1998.

Auburn (16-7, 3-2 SEC) managed 11 hits but couldn't push across any runs. The Tigers left 12 men on base, twice leaving the bases loaded. It was the first time they haven't scored a run in a home game since 2005.

South Carolina (19-4, 5-0 SEC), which is the only remaining unbeaten team in SEC play, scored two late runs to take the win. Scott Wingo doubled in a run in the eighth to break a scoreless tie. Kyle Enders singled home a run in the ninth.

Tigers starter Cole Nelson (4-1) was the hard-luck loser. He gave up one run on four hits in 7 2/3 innings.

Hunter Morris and Justin Hargett had three hits apiece for Auburn. Justin Fradejas and Ryan Jenkins both added two hits.

The teams finish the series at Plainsman Park Sunday at 2 p.m. ET.
