Bad weather forces CWS final to be postponed until Thursday

Coastal Carolina 1 FTR

The NCAA has postponed the third game of the National Championship Series. And that game is tonight. In the eighth inning, a long drive from Coastal Carolina shortstop Michael Paez was snagged off the top of the right center-field wall by outfielder Zach Gibbons, robbing a would-be two-run homer. In fact, the way the Chanticleers broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth inning appropriately fit into their wild set of improbable milestones this month. Sporadic showers and additional lightning strikes remained in the area over the next couple of hours, finally necessitating a postponement at 9:30 p.m. local time.

"We want retailers all around to contact us and say we want to enter into an agreement with you and we want to get Coastal Carolina apparel in our stores, in our company, and on our shelves and we are going to do whatever we can to make that happen...we want teal nation to be literal".

Fast forward less than 24 hours, and Arizona seemed to be on another roll to an early lead.

Kevin Woodall Jr. then grounded into a third-to-second force play that ended the frame. The tone was officially set for a odd evening in Omaha. He'd only allowed one run in 10 innings over four CWS appearances before Tuesday.

The most intriguing aspects of the Chanticleers, however, are the way they have managed win and the simple fact that the team obviously knows how to have fun. Arizona captured Game One but Coastal Carolina forced a Game 3 by winning Game 2. Coastal Carolina is looking for its first - the last team to win it all during its first trip to Omaha was Minnesota in 1956.

Beckwith is ranked No. 18 in the country in ERA and his pitching style is especially hard on same-sided hitters.

Once they no longer could be on the field or in the dugout Wednesday, the Wildcats spent most of their time hanging out and doing impressions of one another in the third-base clubhouse.

Arizona got a runner to second in the bottom of the fourth when Kyle Lewis drew a one-out walk from Coastal starter Andrew Beckwith and took second on a ground out to first by Alfonso Rivas.

In truth, neither of these teams was expected to be here at the beginning of the season, or even when the tournament began.

Alex Cunningham earned his first save, striking out Ryan Haug with a full-count fastball to end the game after Arizona had pulled within a one in the bottom of the ninth. Live streaming for the College World Series national championship series is available via Watch ESPN. Meanwhile, Arizona will look at the past pedigree of the program as proof that it's been here before and taken care of business. The Wildcats made a couple mistakes. The teams meet again Wednesday night for the national championship.
