Arizona Wildcats Baseball Advances To Omaha Following Win Over St. John's

The Arizona Wildcats are heading to Omaha for the 2012 College World Series. This was a team that battled and faced adversity all year, but they stuck together and swept St. John's in Super Regional action to secure one of the final eight spots in the tournament.

UA took an early 3-0 lead on Saturday afternoon and continued to add on in the middle innings on their way to a 7-4 victory. Konner Wade threw nine innings of very impressive ball, allowing just six hits to a hot St. John's lineup.

Seth Mejias-Brean went 3-for-5 with an RBI and Bobby Brown had two hits and drove in two runs. Arizona has scored seven or more runs in all five of their postseason games thus far.

This is a great day for Wildcats baseball, the city of Tucson and the University of Arizona. It remains to be seen who Arizona will play next week in Omaha, but you can rest assured manager Andy Lopez will have his club ready.
