Gauchos Gone From CWS After Loss to Arizona

Goodbye Gauchos. UC Santa Barbara’s first trip to the College World Series ended Wednesday night.

The Gauchos were blanked 3-0 by Arizona in an elimination game.  Wildcats starter JC Cloney gave up only five singles in seven-plus innings of work.

Arizona will play Oklahoma State Friday in the Bracket 1 final.  The Wildcats need to win that game and another Saturday against the Cowboys to reach next week’s best-of-three finals.

There is one CWS game on tap Thursday night: Coastal Carolina meets Texas Tech at 7pm in an elimination contest.
