2012 College World Series Scores: Arizona Shuts Out UCLA, 4-0

In the battle between Pac-12 teams during the 2012 College World Series, the Arizona Wildcats emerged victorious, 4-0, against the UCLA Bruins. They will continue on in the winner's bracket while the Bruins are now playing for their postseason lives on Tuesday.

Arizona confined its scoring to the fourth inning and roughed up UCLA starter Nick Vander Tuig that inning. Joey Rickard struck out to start the inning, but then three straight singles had the bases loaded. Third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean ripped a two-run single and advanced to second base on a throwing error. Designated hitter Bobby Brown sent a double down the right field line for two more runs.

UCLA threatened in the top of the fifth when it had the bases loaded against Arizona starter Konner Wade, but second baseman Kevin Williams popped out to left fielder Johnny Field. Wade threw a complete game shutout, allowing just five hits and striking out four.

Arizona waits until Thursday to play again, facing the winner of Tuesday's Florida St.-UCLA game. The Wildcats beat Florida St. in their opening CWS game. Stony Brook is the only team eliminated from the tournament thus far.
