Arizona Wildcats Win College World Series

 The Arizona Wildcats won their 4th National Championship in baseball Monday night, ending the South Carolina Gamecocks‘ reign as two-time defending champs with a 4-1 victory.

Arizona used a simple formula as they rolled through an undefeated postseason. Excellent starting pitching. Monday night, it was James Farris‘ turn. Even though he had not played yet in Omaha, he looked comfortable on College baseball’s biggest state, tossing 7.2 innings, allowing only 2 hits and 1 run.

The win marks the Wildcats 4th national title, but first since 1986. For head coach Andy Lopez, it was his second. He won his first as head coach at Pepperdine in 1992. He also led Florida to several CWS appearances, but never a National Championship. Lopez is now one of only three coaches to lead three different programs to the College World Series and one of only two coaches to win the College World Series with two different programs.

Being a successful head coach who has spent the majority of his life in college baseball, Lopez knows it’s all about getting hot.

“It’s not the best team that wins, it’s the hottest team, and these guys got hot at the right time.”

Hot indeed. Arizona won their last 11 games, and 18 of their last 20. The Wildcats end their impressive run on top of the college baseball world.
