GREENVILLE — The winners on day one of the first-ever NCAA baseball regional to be staged in Clark-LeClair Stadium were South Carolina and Mother Nature.

The second-seeded Gamecocks trounced third-seeded George Mason 11-3 in a rain-impeded opener on Friday that began at 3:00 p.m. and stretched over four hours.

That set the stage for No. 1 seed East Carolina and fourth-seeded Binghamton to be kept in the wings by thunderstorms past 10 p.m., when their game was postponed until 10 o'clock Saturday morning.

Tournament officials indicated that fans would still need their "Session 2" ticket stub to attend the ECU-Binghamton game at its newly-designated time.

The regional's original schedule will remain intact for the other two games scheduled on Saturday. George Mason will face the loser of the morning makeup game in an elimination contest at 2 p.m., while South Carolina will face the victor of the ECU-Binghamton contest at 6 p.m.
