Arizona shut out Coastal Carolina in Game 1, winning the game, 3-0. Starter J.C. Clooney, 22, only allowed four hits in the game, per ESPN, extending his scoreless innings streak at the College World Series to 16. Carolina didn’t get to second base until the ninth inning. J.C. was deadly, with his fastball hitting somewhere in the 80-mph range. That’s hot! No wonder the Carolina hitters were struggling.
“You want to sit on a fastball, and he throws you a cutter,” Carolina player Michael Paez, 21, said. “And you sit on the off-speed and he throws a fastball.” Carolina hopes to even things up in Game 2. If they don’t, Arizona will win their second national championship in five years and tie their rivals, Arizona State, with five World Series wins.
The Chanticleers’ Zach Hopeck pitched 6 1/3 innings, giving up five hits and two earned runs. Their bats were also silent, as the four players with at least 15 home runs this year — Zach Remillard, 22, G.K. Young, 21, Connor Owings, 22, and Michael Paez, 21 – couldn’t light up the scoreboard. Coastal Carolina better change things up or the Wildcats will be taking the World Series trophy back to Tucson.
Who do you think is going to win, HollywoodLifers? Are you rooting for Arizona or do you think Carolina will come through?
