South Carolina stays alive in Omaha
Christian Walker homered and singled in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and South Carolina staved off elimination a fourth straight time Saturday night to beat rival Clemson 4-3 and advance to the College World Series finals.
The Gamecocks (52-16) will play UCLA in the best-of-three championship round starting Monday. Clemson, the only team to make it to Omaha that wasn't a No. 1 regional seed, finished 45-25.
