This is a historic College World Series, in more ways than one. Arizona is the first team since 2008 to make it to the championship match despite starting their season off unranked, according to SB Nation. It’s also the first time since 1992 that two non-No.1 regional seeds have made it to the College World Series, as both the Wildcats and the Chanticleers were No. 2 seeds in different regional tournaments.
Arizona has won 4 College World Series, according to ESPN, and they want to tie their rivals, Arizona State with a fifth title. The key to their success has been their pitching, with No. 1 starter, Nathan Bannister, 22, leaving batters in shambles. However, he left his last game with an arm injury, according to Sports Illustrated. If Nathan can’t handle it, he’s got Cameron Ming, 20, and Bobby Dalbec, 21, both powerhouse pitchers, to cover for him.
Meanwhile, Coastal Carolina has won the most games in Division I this year. They’ve also hit 95 home runs, the most in the Division. Four players have hit at least 15 home runs this year – Zach Remillard, 22, G.K. Young, 21, Connor Owings, 22, and Michael Paez, 21. Will these sluggers be able to shred the Wildcats pitchers? Or will Arizona leave Coastal Carolina high and dry? It’s going to be good, either way!
