The South Carolina softball team (29-15) notched a 4-2 victory over Winthrop Tuesday night, kicking off an 11-game home stand to end the regular season. Redshirt junior pitcher Julie Sarratt picked up her 14th win of the season, holding the Eagles (22-20) to one earned run on five hits over seven innings. Winthrop junior Kelsey Ritter scored the first run of the game when she took home on senior infielder Codee Yeske’s error. Yeske redeemed herself in the bottom frame, plating two Gamecock baserunners with a double to right field. Sarratt surrendered a solo shot to Brookland-Cayce graduate Alex White in the fourth inning, but South Carolina maintained separation in the bottom of the inning off senior outfielder Chelsea Hawkins’ RBI single. Junior Sarah Mooney gave the team an insurance run that they would not end up needing in the bottom of the sixth, launching a solo home run, her ninth of the season, which is the most on the team. The Gamecocks square off against LSU Friday at 7 p.m.
