Christian Walker homered and singled in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and South Carolina staved off elimination for a fourth straight time Saturday night to beat rival Clemson 4-3 and advance to the College World Series finals.

The Gamecocks (52-16) will play UCLA in the best-of-three championship round starting Monday night. Clemson, the only team to make it to Omaha that wasn't a No. 1 regional seed, finished 45-25.

Walker broke a 2-2 tie after Clemson intentionally walked Jackie Bradley. Walker sent Alex Frederick's 3-1 pitch up the middle, scoring Evan Marzilli from third base. Adrian Morales followed with a single through the right side to put South Carolina up 4-2.

Gamecocks reliever Matt Price (4-1) allowed one run in 2.1 innings. Clemson's Casey Harman (8-4) took the loss.
