June 14th
1975 - Carolina ended its dominant 1975 season with its first ever trip to the College World Series championship game, but fell short, losing to Texas 5-1. The Gamecocks, 51-6-1 on the year, saw star pitcher Earl Bass take his first loss of the year after winning 17 straight. Bass allowed just eight hits but some shaky defense and a home run by Texas' Mickey Reichenbach resulted in the defeat. USC's lone run came on a solo homer by 1B Hank Small, his 19th of the year. Carolina would scratch only four hits on the day off future White Sox started Rich Wortham.
