2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament Scores: Arizona Delivers Clutch 7-6 Win Over St. John's In 10 Innings

Blown saves have been a theme in the early Super Regional games Friday -- Stony Brook blew a save in back-to-back-to-back innings against LSU, and that game is still going in extra innings. St. John's took a 6-5 lead over Arizona into the bottom of the 10th inning, but the Wildcats were able to produce the clutch hits necessary to rally for a pivotal 7-6 win.

With the score tied at six and the bases loaded, it was Arizona's Trent Gilbert who came through with the base hit that won the game. The win gives Arizona a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series.

The Colorado Rockies drafted two St. John's players this year -- infielder Matt Wessinger, who went 1-5 Friday, and pitcher Matt Carasiti.
