The Gamecocks answered back immediately in the bottom half of the inning, exploding for six runs. They scored four of those runs before the Rebels were able to record an out, spelling Ole Miss starter Jordan Vera after just two-plus innings of work. Brayden Jones would come in from the bullpen with the bases loaded and no outs and record all three outs by the way of the strikeout, but not before the damage was done.
