Noteworthy

The game is a make-up from a March 5 rainout. The Gamecocks are 19-12 since then, including a 1-0 win over the Hornets.... Polk, who won that first game, will start for JSU, but coach Jim Case is expected to use several pitchers. The Gamecocks used five in the first meeting ... Blanchard has a 12-game hitting streak (22-for-47) and has reached base in 21 consecutive games. The Gamecocks are 22-12 with him in the cleanup spot. ... Gordon has 22 hits in his last 13 games. ... ASU has 99 stolen bases this season; Amion is second nationally. ... Gonzalez is one the 2013 Johnny Bench Award watch list for the nation’s top catchers. ... The Hornets are three wins shy of school record — all 27 are against Division I opponents (most in school history)
