2012 College World Series: Arizona Leads South Carolina, 1-0, After 5 Innings

The Arizona Wildcats lead the South Carolina Gamecocks, 1-0, after five innings of play. That leaves four more innings until the Wildcats can lay claim to the 2012 College World Series championship. Trent Gilbert's RBI ground out in the third inning remains the difference in this game. Joseph Maggi scored that run after reaching base on a double.

South Carolina started Michael Roth and outside of that one run he has been the solid Omaha pitcher we've seen since 2010. He has struck out three batters and allowed just two hits in five innings of work.

Arizona's James Farris has been equally impressive with all of his pitches on Monday night. He has surrendered just one hit in five shutout innings.

Arizona is looking for its first College World Series title since 1986 while South Carolina is looking for a threepeat. As of now, South Carolina is teetering on the brink of collapse.
