The Kent St. Golden Flashes are out of the 2012 College World Series after falling to the South Carolina Gamecocks, 4-1, on Thursday afternoon. The Golden Flashes were looking to be a No. 3 regional seed to take the College World Series title, but, like Stony Brook, the upstart Northern team was unable make it to the final title series.
South Carolina, meanwhile, is back on the right side of things after a 2-1 loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks snapped a 22-game postseason and 12-game Omaha winning streak. Grayson Greiner and Chase Vergason each singled in a run in the second inning while L.B. Dantzler launched a two-run home run in the bottom of the third inning.
South Carolina went with starter Michael Roth for this game after Wednesday night's game had to be rescheduled as this game on Thursday. Roth threw a two-hit complete game, allowing one run on a single in the second inning. He struck out eight.
The Gamecocks, looking to win their third straight College World Series, will be back on the field on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. to face Arkansas. Tune into ESPN2 to see if South Carolina wards off elimination once again to face a deciding elimination game against the Razorbacks on Friday.
