Here is how various notable observers at last night’s USC-Clemson game at Riley Park described Gamecock center fielder Evan Marzilli’s two out diving catch to secure a 3-2 win over the Tigers:
Gene Sapakoff, Charleston Post and Courier
@Sapakoff #USC wins 3-2 as Marzilli makes diving catch of Jay Baum drive with 2 on in 11th. Belcher gets the save, Koumas gets win. #Clemson #chs

Darryl Slater, Charleston P&C
@DarrylSlater Evan Marzilli charges a liner to center and makes a diving catch. He dove forward. Caught ball. Game over. USC wins 3-2.
Greg Wallace, Anderson Independent Mail
@aimclemson Wow. Baum lines a shot to center…. and Marzilli comes up with a sliding grab. Ballgame. 3-2 South Carolina.

@RoyPhilpott Gamecocks win it 3-2 on a great play by CF Marzilli with runners at the corners. Same two teams tomorrow in Columbia.
Michael Haney, 107.5 FM
@Haney1075 Baum floats one towards the gap in left center and Marzilli makes a diving grab. Holy geez, what a play.
Travis Sawchik, Charleston P&C
@travis_sawchik When considering the situation and how much ground he covered (and the wind and trajectory) got to give Marzilli’s catch a 10
Eric Guimaraes, 560 The Team
@ericg560 A diving catch by Marzilli sends the #USC faithful into hysterics. 3-2 #Gamecocks final

And last, but not least, here is a postgame tweet from Nolan Belcher, who was on the mound when Marzilli made the game saving catch.
