SEC Power Rankings: Week 4

4. South Carolina Gamecocks blue

(5-0 Last Week, 0-0 SEC, 14-3 Overall)

Top 25 Rank: #7

Weekend Series: vs. Kentucky

South Carolina has seven straight wins since their series loss to Clemson two weeks ago. However, it is clear that Chad Holbrook’s team is not quite at the level of past seasons.

Even in a down year, the Gamecocks are still a threat in the SEC East. Senior first baseman Kyle Martin leads the way for Carolina into SEC play. He has hit .368 with three home runs and 18 RBI in the 2015 campaign.

Weekend Prediction: South Carolina defeats Kentucky 2 games to 1

This series will be closer than most expected before the season. South Carolina’s deep bullpen will be the difference. Only one Gamecock reliever has an ERA above three.
