         === Wingo plays hero, South Carolina tops Texas A&M in CWS ===
 
 Omaha,  NE (Sports  Network) - Scott Wingo capped a 4-for-4 performance at the
 plate  Sunday with an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth, lifting defending
 national  champion  South Carolina past  Texas A&M,  5-4, in the College World
 Series.
 
 With the bases loaded and nobody out, Wingo crushed Nick Fleece's offering off
 the base of the wall in right field to plate the winning run.
 
 Wingo's  big hit  was a  huge relief  for South  Carolina, which  started last
 year's  title run  with a loss to  Oklahoma in the opening game. The Gamecocks
 reeled  off four straight victories, including two against arch-rival Clemson,
 to  reach the  championship series against UCLA. The Gamecocks beat the Bruins
 in consecutive games to win the championship.
 
 Adrian  Morales and Peter Mooney had an RBI apiece for the Gamecocks, who will
 next  face Virginia  on  Tuesday.  The Cavaliers  took  down California,  4-1,
 earlier in the day.
 
 South  Carolina  starter Michael Roth gave  up four unearned runs on four hits
 over  7  1/3 innings. Matt Price  recorded the final  two outs in the ninth to
 pick up the win.
 
 Brandon  Wood knocked  in three  runs for  the Aggies,  who will  face Cal  on
 Tuesday. Jacob House had an RBI and run scored.
 
 Ross  Stripling  went eight  innings, allowing  four runs --  two earned -- on
 seven  hits. Kyle Martin gave up a leadoff double to Robert Beary in the ninth
 to take the loss.
 
 It  seemed like the  game was bound for extra innings as the Gamecocks came to
 the  plate in the home ninth with the score tied at four. But Beary doubled to
 right field to chase Martin from the game. Fleece came in and gave up a single
 to Jackie Bradley Jr. before walking Evan Marzilli to load the bases.
 
 In  the afternoon  game, Keith Werman went  2-for-4 with an RBI and John Hicks
 went 1-for-4 with an RBI for the Cavaliers.
 
 Tyler Wilson earned the win for Virginia after giving up one run on three hits
 over 2 1/3 innings of relief.
 
 Starter  Danny Hultzen  went 6  1/3  innings, giving  up just  three hits  and
 striking  out six  without surrendering a run. Branden Kline took the save for
 Virginia.
 
 Mitch  Delfino went  2-for-4 and Chad Bunting  knocked in the only run for the
 Bears.
 
 Logan  Scott took the loss for Cal after giving up two runs on three hits over
 three innings.
 
 Starter  Erik  Johnson pitched three shutout  innings, giving up just two hits
 while walking five batters.
 
 With men on second and third in the seventh, Hicks knocked in the first run of
 the  game with a single. Steven Proscia followed with a sacrifice fly to plate
 the eventual game-winning run.
 
 The  Cavaliers  added two  more in  the eighth.  With a  runner on, Jared King
 tripled  to  the right-field corner,  then scored  after Werman roped a single
 down the left-field line.
 
 Bunting knocked in Cal's only run in the ninth, but Kline came in and shut the
 Bears down to secure the win.
