2002 - The Gamecocks eliminated Georgia Tech with a 9-5 victory in the College World Series. USC jumped out to a 5-2 lead and held off a late Yellow Jacket rally. The Carolina scoring started in the third when Drew Meyer reached on a fielder's choice and came around to score on a wild pitch and a passed ball. Meyer added an RBI single in the fourth, while Landon Powell had a two-run single and Meyer scored on an error to account for the first five USC runs. Steve Thomas added a solo home run in the seventh, then USC added three more in the eighth on another RBI single from Meyer and a two-run homer by Justin Harris. Aaron Rawl pitched the whole game for Carolina to improve his record to 7-1 on the year.
