OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – The College World Series championship game between Coastal Carolina and Arizona has been postponed until Thursday at 1:08pm because of inclement weather in the Omaha, Nebraska area.
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.
