* SOUTH CAROLINA 15, LSU 4: Kevin Melillo had four hits and was ejected and reinstated after a collision at home to help the Gamecocks eliminate the Tigers in Omaha.
South Carolina trailed 3-1 before scoring six runs with two outs in the sixth.
Nick Gardiner singled to right off Lane Mestepey (7-4) with the bases loaded and two out. Landon Powell scored easily, but Melillo collided with LSU catcher Matt Liuzza and scored after the ball bounced under Liuzza's glove. He was ejected by umpire Bob Homolka but was reinstated after the umpires determined the collision was unintentional.
The Gamecocks scored four more in the inning, three on throwing errors, then added six more in the eighth.
South Carolina (51-16) will face Miami today for the chance to face Cal State Fullerton.
