TUCSON, Ariz. -- Konner Wade tossed a six-hitter and Arizona earned its first trip to the College World Series since 2004 by beating St. John's 7-4 on Saturday to complete a two-game sweep.
A three-time national champion, Arizona (43-17) earned a share of the Pac-12 championship for the first time since 1993 and is headed back to Omaha for the 16th time after finishing off the Red Storm.
The Wildcats rallied from five runs down to win the first game of the super regional on Friday and jumped on St. John's (40-24) early in Game 2, scoring three runs in the first inning off Sean Hagan (8-3).
Wade (9-3) allowed four runs, and Bobby Brown had two RBIs to set off raucous celebration at Hi Corbett Field.
