COLUMBIA – South Carolina was in a tight game against Charleston Southern, in Carolina Stadium, Tuesday night.Then freshman Alex Destino took matters into his own hands.The freshman from Weaverville, North Carolina hit a grand slam off the top of the right field fence in the seventh inning to break open what had been a tight game to lead the Gamecocks to a 10-4 victory.Destino entered the game having struggled at the plate in his more recent games, but delivered just what USC needed against the Buccaneers.“It is always good to score a lot of runs,” said Destino. “I wouldn’t say we needed it, but it was good seeing these runs come across. It was definitely good to see the guys back happy in the dugout, enjoying everybody.“It was good to see coach getting up, getting excited. We definitely needed to see that. It was a good atmosphere today. I enjoyed being in the dugout. I’m pretty sure everybody else did.”It was Destino’s third home run of the season and the Gamecocks first grand slam since March 19th, 2014 when Grayson Greiner hit a walk-off shot in a 9-6 USC win over Tennessee in Carolina Stadium.The win lifted USC’s record to 8-3 in the continuation of what could become the team’s busiest week of the season.The Gamecocks were far from a one-man show, however. Veterans Kyle Martin and Max Schrock had big nights at the plate, combining for five hits, five RBI and two runs.“A lot of guys were very impressive tonight,” said Schrock. “There was a lot of good 2-0, 3-1 swings. It was nice to put last weekend behind us and say this was a new day.”Following a disappointing loss to Clemson on Monday, the Gamecocks found themselves in early trouble against the Buccaneers.After sitting down the first two batters he faced, USC starting pitcher Tyler Haswell was tagged for a solo home run off the bat of Charleston Southern designated hitter Andrew Widell who stroked one well over the right field fence.That was followed by a double to right by third baseman Robbie Street. First baseman Chase Shelton then reached when Haswell couldn’t handle a swinging bunt.Catcher Sam Remick made the Gamecocks pitcher pay for the miscue when he doubled to left to score Street to give Charleston Southern an early 2-0 advantage.USC got the bats going in the third when Gene Cone, Elliott Caldwell and Martin opened with consecutive singles. A later single by Schrock allowed the Gamecocks to claim a 3-2 lead.The advantage was short-lived, however, as the Buccaneers pushed a run across in the fourth to tie things and then went ahead in the sixth on a bases loaded walk from USC reliever John Parke.Vince Fiori pitched the final one and two/third innings, allowing one hit and no walks, while striking out five of the six batters he faced.“I thought Fiori was about as sharp as he’s been in a long, long time,” said USC coach Chad Holbrook. “He’s gotten some big outs for us in the past, but he was very sharp today.”The Gamecocks (8-3) return to action Wednesday when they host High Point in Carolina Stadium at 4 p.m.After taking Thursday off, USC will host Miami (Ohio) in a weekend series.Koerner, Clemson dominate South Carolina in 3rd game of the series

The decision to award the goal started decades of debate and much-disputed video analysis. Tilkowski always said he was sure the ball did not fully cross the line.England won the game 4-2.Hurst, whose three goals for England in the final made him a national hero, paid tribute to Tilkowski on Twitter on Monday.“Terrific player for his club, Borussia Dortmund, and country and a very fine man,” Hurst wrote. “I very much enjoyed the time we spent together over the years.”In his statement of condolences, German soccer federation president Fritz Keller said Tilkowski would have been a worthy World Cup winner.“The title of world champion would have been the deserved culmination of his career with the national team,” Keller said. “He was not only an excellent player, but he also was very involved in society off the field. For me, he’s among German football’s greatest personalities and his death is a painful loss for the (federation) and for the football family.”In addition to his 39 games for West Germany, Tilkowski won the German Cup in 1965 and Cup Winners’ Cup the following year with Dortmund. Beating Liverpool 2-1 in Glasgow in the Cup Winners’ Cup final in May 1966 made Dortmund the first German club to win a major European competition.“With Hans Tilkowski, German football has lost a player who was also highly regarded internationally,” Dortmund president Reinhard Rauball said in a statement.
Two more followed in the same tournament, one against Ireland and another against Cameroon. 08/07/2014 As if scoring for Germany against Brazil in Tuesday night’s rout wasn’t enough, Miroslav Klose also overtook Brazilian legend Ronaldo as the highest all-time scorer in the history of the tournament. Klose’s goal against Ghana in the group phase had drew him level with Ronaldo on 15. His first taste of scoring in a World Cup was against Saudi Arabia in 2002 – and not content with one, he smashed in three on that day. Sam Marsden He scored five more at the World Cup in 2006 when Germany hosted the event and four more four years later in South Africa. But while equalling the record was all well and good, the 36-year-old striker will have been much happier to have moved himself clear at the top with 16. Upd. on 09/07/2014 at 00:00 CEST Initially it looked like the chance might have passed, but given a second bite of the cherry he knew exactly where the back of the net was – as he’s proved on so many occasions at previous World Cups. His contract with Lazio expires this summer and he is tipped for one last payday – possibly in America – but before then he’ll have the chance to score his most important goal of all. In the World Cup final.
