UGA avoids elimination

South Carolina's Adrian Morales tags out Georgia's Kyle Farmer who slid past third base Friday in the second inning of a third-round game of the NCAA SEC Baseball Tournament at Regions Park in Hoover, Ala. Georgia won 4-2.

  HOOVER, Ala. — Chase Davidson had two RBIs and three Georgia pitchers combined to contain South Carolina 4-2 Friday night and oust the top-seeded Gamecocks from the Southeastern Conference tournament.
    The Bulldogs (30-29) still need to beat Florida twice to make the championship game, but have to win the first one to secure a winning record and be eligible for an NCAA regional. The Gamecocks (45-14) never overcame a 3-0 first-inning deficit.
    Neither team scored after the third.
    Georgia starter Blake Dieterich (3-3) went a career-long 6-1/3 innings while reliever Bryan Benzor stranded runners in scoring position in the seventh and eighth. Closer Tyler Maloof got two straight groundouts and a strikeout in the ninth for his 17th save.
    Davidson got things going with a two-run single in the first before South Carolina starter Colby Holmes (6-3) settled down.
