Arizona wins national title with 4-1 win
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Arizona coach Andy Lopez thought he had the makings of a national championship team four years ago.
Better late than never.
Arizona ended South Carolina’s two-year run of dominance at the College World Series with a 4-1 victory on Monday night, delivering the long-awaited national title to the coach who took over Arizona’s downtrodden program 11 years ago.
Brandon Dixon’s tie-breaking double started a three-run ninth inning for Arizona, and the Wildcats (48-17) won their first title since 1986.

Twins top White Sox 4-1 in Youkilis debut
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Francisco Liriano faced runners at the corners with only one out in the seventh.
This was precisely the type of situation where he’s faltered so many times before, but Twins manager Ron Gardenhire didn’t budge.
“I just have a lot of confidence in him,” Gardenhire said.
Liriano deftly navigated his way out of the jam while spoiling Kevin Youkilis’ first game with Chicago, pitching a season-high seven innings to lead the Twins to a 4-1 victory over the White Sox on Monday night.
“I’m more relaxed. I’m not trying to make a perfect pitch,” Liriano said. “I’m not worried about the runners like I was before.”
