LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Sophomore right-hander Justin Lewis took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and did not allow a run in his 5.1 innings, but no run support was to be found as the No. 8 Wildcats fell 3-1 to South Carolina.
A walk and an error put two runners on base for the Gamecocks in the seventh, when TJ Hopkins came in to pinch hit for catcher Hunter Taylor. Hopkins hit a three-run homer to left off senior LHP Logan Salow, and sealed Kentucky's fate.
