COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

South Carolina sophomore left-hander Jordan Montgomery carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning to help 12th ranked South Carolina to a 7-1 win over Georgia Saturday afternoon. A sellout crowd of 8,242 fans showed up for Senior Day at Carolina Stadium.

Senior right-hander Colby Holmes pitched two scoreless innings with one hit allowed and two strikeouts to close out the victory for Carolina.  Joey Pankake and Graham Saiko each went 2-for-4 to lead the Gamecocks at the plate.
