Arizona avoids elimination with 6-5 win over Delaware in 12

The Oroville High graduate's Wildcats bounced back on Saturday and won 6-5 over DE in 12 innings in an NCAA regional game in Lubbock, Texas. They need to beat the host Red Raiders twice to advance to a Super Regional. But in the end, Alfonso Rivas homered in the 12 inning with two outs to put Arizona up a run. Meanwhile, Arizona was just 4-for-18 with runners on base and left 10 on to just four for Sam Houston.

The second and third innings went quickly and quietly, with neither team being able to get their offense rolling.

Tennessee Tech fell to 5-3 to Auburn on Saturday.

Henderson was 2 of 3 and reached base five times as he walked, singled, bunted for another hit, was hit by a pitch and reached on an error that scored the Seminoles' final run in the top of the ninth inning. His RBI single in the sixth produced the game's first run and his two-run single in the seventh made it 5-1. Freshman catcher Michael Berglund hit a two-out double down the right field line, scoring Long from first. Deason then issued a walk to Jaxxon Grisham before retiring the next two hitters, but that is when the damage got going.

Arizona looked like it was about to make a big rally in the fourth. He advanced to second on a ground out, and was brought in to score courtesy of a double from Andrew Fregia, giving the Bearkats the 1-0 lead. Matijevic led off the inning with a single to centerfield.

Ballew followed by working around a leadoff double by Boyd to keep Arizona off the board, but an inning later the Kats were not so fortunate.

Corbyn refused to say that renewing Trident is "morally right", but Paxman didn't get the killer blow he craved. He said immigration would "probably" come down under a Labour government "but I don't want to be held to this".

Quezada recorded five strikeouts and only allowed one hit during the next two innings.

But the huge inning threat was ended when Louis Boyd lined out to the first baseman, who proceeded to double up Kyle Lewis.

Arizona would get a solo homer from Boyd to lead off the top of the ninth, but that would be it as Wesneski would retire three of the final four Wildcat hitters to close it out and send the Kats to the regional final.

Tech was the visiting team during the contest, so the Red Raiders stepped up to the plate first and got the offense going quickly.

Sam Houston State's Bryce Johnson hit a single to right field, allowing two more Bearkats to score. His 87 hits in 2017 is the eighth most in a single season in Bearkat history.

Both losses in the regional for Arizona came at the hand of Sam Houston State, losing to the Bearkats in the opening round, 5-4. They also scored eight against Abilene Christian this season.
