COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

LB Dantzler homered twice including a game-winner in the bottom of the eighth inning as No. 14 South Carolina beat Texas A&M 6-3 Saturday and sweep the three-game SEC baseball series. 

The Gamecocks are now 22-6 and 5-4 in the SEC with the Aggies dropping to 18-11 and 5-4 in league play.

Tied at 3-3 entering the bottom of the eighth inning, Dantzler came to the plate with one out. Dantzler drove the first pitch he saw from Aggie reliever Jason Jester into the bullpen in right field for his second homer of the game and ninth of the season to give the Gamecocks a one-run lead.

Senior left-hander Adam Westmoreland got the win in relief after going 4.2 innings and allowing one run on three hits with a walk and three strikeouts.  He is 3-0 on the year. 

Senior left-hander Tyler Webb came on in relief to get the final two outs for his third save of the series and 11th of the season.

Dantzler answered with his first homer of the game in the bottom of the fourth to tie the game at 2-2.  Dantzler launched a 2-2 pitch from Texas A&M starter Daniel Mengden over the right field wall.  Bright put Carolina ahead 3-2 in the sixth inning with a solo homer, his second of the season.

Texas A&M had eight hits with the Gamecocks with seven for the contest.  Dantzler and Bright were both 2-for-4 with two runs scored.  Vergason scored two runs as well.  Bratsen went 2-for-2 to lead Texas A&M at the plate.

South Carolina is back in action on Tuesday night hosting Charleston Southern.
