The Tigers came into today’s game at Segra Park with a chance to win the series against the Gamecocks with Davis Sharpe on the mound. However, they dug themselves too big of a hole, and saw a would be ninth inning rally fall short, losing 8-5.
Sharpe (1-1) surrendered his first earned runs of the season, allowing four runs on six hits, in 3.1 innings. Certainly not the type of outing he wanted after his shushing gesture that he gave the Gamecock fans after a two run blast on Friday night.
As for the neutral-site event, and to no surprise, the crowd leaned heavily towards the Gamecocks, and set the single game attendance record in the series with 8,986 fans.
