College World Series Score: South Carolina Extends Game 2 Lead With Championship In Sight

The top of the sixth inning came and went with the Florida Gators making some noise that wound up silenced (poetic!), but South Carolina Gamecocks SS Peter Mooney responded in the bottom of the inning with a home run to deep right field to make it 4-1. It was the first homer in five games for the Cocks, who've made their living on manufacturing runs the old-fashioned way -- just keep running around until the other team throws the ball into a nearby restroom or something.

Evan Marzilli doubled the other way, but Brian Johnson struck out Jackie Bradley Jr. to stop the bleeding.

Michael Roth remained masterful through the top of the seventh, with Christian Walker again reaching base in the bottom of the inning. Walker now has four hits in nine at bats in the CWS final. A double by Adrian Morales drove Johnson from the game, bringing on Anthony DeSclafani and then Steven Rodriguez.

Carolina very nearly tacked on another run, but Josh Adams whistled an out to first to end the seventh.
