Wade Leads Arizona Past UCLA

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Konner Wade pitched a five-hit shutout, Arizona did its scoring on five straight fourth-inning hits, and the Wildcats beat Pac-12 rival UCLA 4-0 in the College World Series on Sunday night.

The win puts the Wildcats (45-17) in control of Bracket 1 and gives them three days off. They are one victory away from the best-of-three finals, in which they would play for their fourth national championship and first since 1986.

UCLA (48-15), which lost for the first time in 11 games, plays Florida State in an elimination game on Tuesday.

Wade (10-3) outdueled Nick Vander Tuig (10-4), throwing his first career shutout and fifth complete game of the season.

It was Arizona’s sixth shutout in 62 CWS games and its first since Craig Lefferts blanked Michigan in 1980.

Seth Mejias-Brean’s bases-loaded single drove in the Wildcats’ first two runs, and Bobby Brown followed with a two-RBI double.
