The Arizona Wildcats met the South Carolina Gamecocks on Sunday night in the first game of the 2012 College World Series Championship Finals. The best-of-three series got off to a great start, as the Wildcats won by a final score of 5-1.
The Wildcats, who have not yet lost a game since arriving in Omaha, only need to win one more game in order to become the national champions. The Gamecocks have played their best baseball in elimination games during the tournament and will be the home team in Game 2, so Arizona should not assume that a two-game sweep is a foregone conclusion.
The second game of the Championship Finals will take place on Monday in Omaha at TD Ameritrade Park. First pitch will be at 5:00 p.m. PT and will be televised on ESPN.
