COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Alaina Coates cant imagine a better post duo in the country than she has with South Carolina teammate Aja Wilson.Shell get no argument from Clemson after the two combined for 39 points, 20 rebounds, seven asissts -- mostly to each other -- and six blocks in the sixth-ranked Gamecocks 83-61 victory Thursday night.The high-low is great, Coates said. I mean, weve got the best high-low duo in the nation. The fact is were doing better getting each other the ball.And the overmatched Tigers (8-2) had little chance of preventing it as South Carolina (8-1) won its seventh straight in the rivalry series.They have a ton of weapons and theyre really tough, Clemson coach Audra Smith said. The inside game is impossible to stop.Wilson finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Coates had 19 points and 10 rebounds for her sixth double-double in nine games this season.Wilson and Coates combined for six points when South Carolina came out of the break with a 17-6 run. The Tigers (8-2) could not respond.South Carolinas rivalry win streak ties the longest in series history, matching the run Clemson had from 1996 through 2001. Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley also improved to 4-0 over her former college teammates at Virginia, Clemsons Smith.Wilson added four assists and two blocks while Coates added three assists, two steals and four of South Carolinas season-high 11 blocked shots. Kaela Davis had 17 points for South Carolina.Nelly Perry had 20 points to lead the Tigers. They lost their second in a row after opening 8-0.Clemson was shorted-handed before things started with its two leading rebounders in forward Kobi Thornton and Aliyah Collier limited by injuries. Thornton was out after hitting her head Monday night in loss to No. 25 Oregon. Collier, who averaged 7.9 rebounds this season, played just three minutes because of continuing knee problems.Smith said she expected Collier back for her next game. Thornton, who had returned from a concussion when she hit her head again, could take a bit longer.THE BIG PICTUREClemson: The Tigers started the season 8-0 against non-Power Five opponents. The Tigers, though, have lost their past two to No. 25 Oregon (87-59) on Monday night and the rival, sixth-ranked Gamecocks. While Clemson has improved -- its already doubled its four-win season from 2015-16, it is not yet ready to consistently play toe-to-toe with its better opponents. And there are plenty of those coming up once Atlantic Coast Conference play starts next month.South Carolina: The Gamecocks certainly dont look like the team yet thats rolled to the past three Southeastern Conference titles. Their post duo of 6-foot-5 Wilson and 6-4 Coates are strong and engaged. On the perimeter, though, there are questions. Kaela Davis and Allisha Gray have looked like All-Americans sometimes and been non factors at others. Point guard Bianca Cuevas-Moore has also struggled at taking over the on-court leadership role that Khadijah Sessions handled so well the previous few years.ALL CHANGINGTalk about differing ways to win. The Gamecocks used 16 3-pointers (second best in program history) to blow past Minnesota last Sunday. This time, South Carolina made just four of 14 long-range baskets while relying on its inside advantage to defeat Clemson. Weve got a lot of ways to win, Staley said. Weve got to take advantage of them.HEY, ROOMIEStaley and Smith were roommates for a short stretch at Virginia in the late 1980s until Staleys night-owl tendencies did not mesh with Smiths early-to-bed style. Each sought more suitable people to live with. But theyve remained good friends since college and Staley was impressed with Smiths building program. Im happy for her and the program, Staley said. Even though theyre our rivals, we want to see all South Carolina teams do well.UP NEXTClemson returns home to face South Carolina State on Sunday.South Carolina closes a three-game home stand against No. 9 UCLA on Sunday.

WASHINGTON -- The Cleveland Indians starting rotation is suddenly on a roll.After struggling through a tough stretch last week, right hander Josh Tomlin will look to turn in the teams fourth consecutive strong outing when the Indians close out their two-game series at the Washington on Wednesday.Tuesday night was Trevor Bauers turn. He bounced back from the worst outing of his career to pitch 6 1/3 shutout innings for the win as the Indians defeated the Nationals 3-1.That followed quality work from Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco over the weekend. The trio combined for a 1.27 ERA over 21 1/3 innings over the three games.What it does is it kind of sets up everybody for their roles, said bench coach Brad Mills, who managed Tuesdays game when Terry Francona was taken ill prior to the start. Its sure nice to get, theres no doubt.Like Bauer, Tomlin (11-4, 3.81 ERA) hopes to rebound from a bad outing. He allowed a season-high seven earned runs on nine hits over 4 2/3 innings in his last start, a loss to the Yankees.Tomlin ranks second in the majors in walks per nine innings (1.15) and third in strikeout to walk ratio (5.56). Hell be making his first career start versus the Nationals, and owns a career .600 batting average (6-for-10).The Nationals meanwhile are suddenly struggling to score runs, winning 1-0 on Sunday before Tuesdays loss.Max Scherzer took a no-hitter into the seventh before surrendering two runs. Jayson Werths homer cut the deficit to one before the Indians added a run in the ninth.It went from a no-hitter to a loss in a matter of time and we couldnt muster too much offense, Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. We hit a couple balls hard, but they hit a couple balls hard also. It was a well-played and well-pitched game.Perhaps its no coincidence that Washington was again without Bryce Harper, whos now missed ttwo straight games with a stiff neck.ddddddddddddHes been getting worked on and stuff, Baker said. Anybody thats had a stiff neck realizes how tough that is, especially to swing. Hes on a day-to-day basis.The reigning National League MVP, Harper is hitting just .233, but is second on the team with 20 homers and third with 57 RBI.Werth also drew a walk in Tuesdays loss as he extended his on-base streak to 39 games.Washington starter Gio Gonzalez (7-9, 4.13) has been resurgent of late. He enters with a 3-1 record and a 2.03 ERA in his last five starts, including 6 1/3 innings with just two earned runs allowed in a no-decision at Cleveland on July 16.Gonzalez, the former Oakland Athletic, has enjoyed facing the Indians. In eight career starts against them, hes 5-0 with 1.07 ERA, though only one of those meetings has come since 2013.Hell have to contend with a red-hot Jose Ramirez. Hitting in the fourth spot, Ramirez drove in two runs with two hits Tuesday night, stole a base and scored a run.Hes been doing it all year, Mills said after the game. He was hitting cleanup tonight for a reason.In his last 15 games, Ramirez is batting .407 (22-for-54) with five doubles, two home runs, five RBI, 10 runs scored and eight stolen bases.One question mark for Cleveland is the status of its manager. Mills said Francona, who had expressed discomfort during his pregame media session, was examined at the ballpark.He started feeling ill. I know the doctors checked him out and so forth and they just felt itd be better for him to go back to the hotel and he did, Mills said.Knowing him he was probably really agonizing during the game, but I think hes doing fine hopefully and well see how it works out for tomorrow.
