Arizona Wildcats One Win From College (Baseball) World Series Finals
In a pretty improbable turn of events, the Arizona Wildcats baseball team is but one win away from a berth in the best-of-three NCAA College World Series championship round this weekend.
The Wildcats await the winner of tonight's elimination game in Omaha between the powerful Florida State Seminoles and the UCLA Bruins.
The extra day's rest (Arizona isn't scheduled to play until tomorrow night) should do wonders for the pitching staff, especially in light of the 12-inning opening round win over FSU during which Wildcat hurlers threw 139 pitches.
Arizona wasn't supposed to do this well, though head coach Andy Lopez brought his squad along slowly this season to where they are right now--undeniably one of college baseball's very best teams.
But it hasn't been easy, never is.
