Ball State's baseball team suffered a 10-0 loss at nationally ranked South Carolina Tuesday night in the first of a two-game series.

With the loss, the Cardinals fall to 5-5 on the season, while the nation's No. 7 ranked team in the USA Today Coaches Poll improved to 9-2.  The two teams will face each other again Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Freshman lefthander Jack Wynkoop retired the first 16 batters he faced and was backed by an offense that pounded out 14 hits as South Carolina tallied its third shutout victory in the last four games.

Ball State starting pitcher Nestor Bautista worked 3.1 innings and allowed seven runs, six earned, on nine hits with three walks and two strikeouts. His record drops to 0-2 for the season.

South Carolina broke ahead 3-0 in the bottom of the second inning.  Carolina extended the lead to 4-0 in the third inning.  A three-run homer from Joey Pankake gave the Gamecocks a seven-run lead in the fourth inning.
