USC has announced Michael Roth will start on the mound for the Gamecocks tonight against Virginia. The junior lefty is 13-3 with a 0.97 ERA this season. Roth started game one of the CWS against Texas A&M. He didn’t allow an earned run and threw 122 pitches in a 5-4 USC win. Roth did not factor in the decision.
Virginia will counter with lefty Danny Hultzen. Hultzen was the number two overall pick in the MLB draft this month.
