Palmetto State Baseball team of the week, May 1-7: USC Upstate

USC Upstate (3-1 for the week)
(beat Presbyterian; went 2-1 vs. North Florida)

USC Upstate lost its first two Atlantic Sun Conference games of the season and hasn't escaped the lower half of the league standings since.

But coach Matt Fincher's Spartans  made some noise over the weekend, getting walk-off victories on Friday and Sunday for a 2-1 series win over A-Sun co-leader North Florida.

After a Wednesday home game against city rival Wofford, the Spartans get a chance to play spoiler at Jacksonville, which shares first with North Florida, next weekend.

Also considered (record for week)
Coastal Carolina (3-0)
Florence-Darlington Tech
Spartanburg Methodist (2-1)
The Citadel (2-1)
USC Aiken (2-0)
