CWS final will wait until Thursday
OMAHA NE - The College World Series championship game between Coastal Carolina and Arizona has been postponed until Thursday because of inclement weather in the Omaha, Nebraska, area on Wednesday night.
NCAA officials waited 2 hours, 23 minutes after the scheduled start time to postpone the game. More rain and lightning were forecast for the area in the early morning hours, meaning a delay would have been likely.
The best-of-three series is tied at a game apiece. Coaches Gary Gilmore of Coastal Carolina (54-18) and Jay Johnson of Arizona (49-23) agreed with the decision to play Thursday.
Neither announced whether their pitching plans would change with the extra time off. Coastal Carolina was to start Alex Cunningham (10-4) against Arizona's Bobby Dalbec (11-5). Both pitched on Saturday.
