Despite winning back to back national championships, USC baseball coach Ray Tanner has found wins hard to come by in the SEC Tournament. The Gamecocks lossed their first game in Hoover Wednesday night but bounced back with a win Thursday over Auburn.
After the game, Tanner talked with SportsTalkSC.com about his team’s performance and how things shape up pitching wise for the rest of the tournament.

Colby Holmes will start Friday night for USC. He’s 6-0 with a 3.29 ERA. Lefthander Brian Johnson will start for the Gators. He’s 6-4 with a 3.88 ERA.
The Gators took two of three from the Gamecocks in the regular season series in Columbia in March. This will be the 9th meeting between the teams in the past two seasons including USC’s two game sweep of the Gators in the national championship series in Omaha last June.
