Liberty-South Carolina NCAA suspended by rain

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - The South Carolina-Liberty game at the NCAA tournament's Columbia regional has been suspended by rain and will resume this afternoon.

The Gamecocks (41-18) hold a 4-2 lead on the Flames (36-28) midway through the fifth inning. Should Liberty come back and win, the teams would play a second time Monday night for the regional crown. South Carolina holds a 26-game home win streak in tournament games dating to 2002.

Liberty defeated Clemson 3-1 earlier Sunday to advance.

The Gamecocks opened a 4-0 lead in the third on two RBIs by LB Dantzler. Liberty cut the deficit in half with two runs in the fourth. The game was delayed after Liberty played a scoreless fifth. Officials waited more than 2 1-2 hours before deciding on the postponement.
