OMAHA, Neb. -- After five months of college baseball, the season will come down to one game.In the second game of Tuesday nights College World Series finals, Coastal Carolina and Arizona unfurled another pitching showdown in a 5-4 victory for the Chanticleers. The game itself was Mondays Game 1 turned inside out.On Monday, it was the Chanticleers who looked tight, made uncharacteristic fielding errors and failed to capitalize when runners reached base. On Tuesday, that role was played by the Wildcats, who officially left nine baserunners stranded, but in reality, the number was much higher.On Monday, Arizona essentially won the game in the nights first frame, with a ground-rule double to build a lead it would never surrender. On Tuesday, the Wildcats once again took a 1-0 lead but only after a bizarre series that included a failed squeeze bunt with the bases load and ended with an out and nearly a caught-stealing double play.That was a play we had success with in the regional final against Louisiana [Lafayette], Arizona coach Jay Johnson said. Scoring first has been a big deal out here [in Omaha] ... and he didnt bunt at the pitch. Thats what happened.That set the tone for a night that felt like an episode of Twilight Zone from the onset, both on the playing field and in the grandstands.A sea of beach balls was launched onto the grass from the left-field bleachers. The biggest cheer of the night was for Staredown Sammy, the kid who has become an internet sensation for going high noon on an ESPN camera Saturday night. There was even an appearance from Marlins Man sitting behind home plate.But none of that could match what happened on the field, particularly for Arizona. One of the worst-looking wild pitches in the history of baseball was unleashed by Arizona starter Kevin Ginkel, who went on to tie a CWS finals record with 10 strikeouts. That record was matched by his opponent, Coastals usual closer, Mike Morrison.The Wildcats recovered from that, just as they recovered from the first-inning baserunning gaffe. However, they werent able to recover from what happened next. What looked to be a lazy fly ball broke in toward the infield and fell through three defenders to the ground in short left field with a man on third. The runner didnt score then, but he scored on the next play.It was the moment that summed up Arizonas night: close ... in position to close out a national title ... again ... but not able to do it. The last gasp came in the eighth, when Coastal started the inning with three runs and Arizona answered with two but left two more on base.This felt epic, didnt it? Morrison said in closing a Coastal Carolina postgame news conference that would have played well at any local comedy club -- not exactly the sign of a team scared of the moment. It just feels crazy. Like something you read about or watch, but you never expected to be here. It feels weird but great.What it feels like is 2008.Thats when Fresno State, an upstart squad like Coastal Carolina, lost Game 1 to Georgia in somewhat demoralizing fashion. Amid worries that they were completely out of pitchers, the Bulldogs survived a shootout in Game 2, a contest in which Georgia had multiple opportunities to finish early but didnt. Sound familiar?Like 2008, the winner-take-all final game might set up a showdown of pitchers we thought might be long gone. That year, Fresnos Justin Wilson, now of the Detroit Tigers, gutted his way through a short-rest start to ice another future big leaguer, Gordon Beckham, and his Georgia teammates.Although Coastal Carolina coach Gary Gilmore wouldnt show his hand for Game 3, he said he had a card to play. That card was sent to the bullpen late Tuesday for little more than show. Ace pitcher Andrew Beckwith was never going to be used by Coastal in Game 2. He stretched in the pen but never threw a single warm-up pitch as reliever Bobby Holmes gutted through the final two innings.It was total psychological warfare. Gilmore wanted everyone to see his burgeoning folk hero jog out to warm up. On Wednesday night, Beckwith will be on four days rest.Ill be honest with you, I dont think I would have let it happen, Gilmore said of Beckwith. We went into this knowing that the two guys that threw tonight, they had to get it done for us. And they did.As for Arizona, ace Nathan Bannister left Fridays de facto semifinal game against Oklahoma State in the third inning because of tightness in his pitching arm, an arm that has thrown more innings than any starter in college baseball this season. Johnson, notoriously stingy with his starting pitcher announcements, never mentioned the possibility of Bannister on Tuesday, even when prodded. The player quietly slipped out of TD Ameritrade Park without comment.The safe choice might be for Johnson to go with righty Bobby Dalbec. But cautious isnt a word usually associated with the biggest game in the lives of everyone involved.Im going to try to make it not be that, Gilmore said. If you make it bigger than life ... weve not done that through this entire thing. I keep telling them that every time we meet. Its just another baseball game.No, its another Game 3.

NEWTON, Iowa -- Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez and Elliott Sadler are guaranteed spots in the NASCAR Xfinity Chase -- as long as they start each of next nine races.The rest of the series contenders need at least one win to ensure a playoff berth, which is why Saturdays stand-alone race in Iowa is so big for all of them.Brad Keselowski is the only Sprint Cup regular in the field, so there might not be a better chance for a winless driver to grab a victory that would all but lock up a Chase bid. There are nine Xfinity drivers who would earn a playoff spot with a win at Iowa Speedway.Definitely with not a lot of Cup guys in the field ... its an even better opportunity for us. Weve got a bunch of new guys and new cars. But we still have the last race winner here (Sam Hornish Jr.), Richard Childress Racing driver Ty Dillon said. It looks like it could be a good weekend for us to go out and notch that first win.Dillon is among the drivers who can vastly improve their playoff chances even if they dont win. Hes third in the point standings, just 50 behind Suarez, the leader.Dillon hasnt won a race in his last 65 starts, dating back to Indianapolis in 2014. But he finished second behind Hornish in last months race in Iowa with what he called a fifth or sixth-place car, and he has posted top-five finishes in three of his last four races at Iowa.Weve changed quite a few things coming back here -- changes that we feel like will put us in a positive position. I know I can get around this pplace and make things happen if we can put ourselves in position to win, Dillon said.ddddddddddddFor drivers like Darrell Wallace Jr., Iowa represents a chance to not only make the playoffs but to be ready when they begin.Wallace is ninth after a slew of finishes that were much worse than his starting position. But Wallace feels like the No. 6 team can start to figure things out at Iowa, a track where he has run well.Thats kind of been the tale of our season, bad luck, Wallace said. This is a place where we can regroup and try and get on a consistent roll.Jones is the only Xfinity regular to win more than once, haven taken first in Bristol and Dover. He also won the trucks series races in Iowa in 2014 and 2015, though he did finish 27th from the pole in June.Weak results have been a recurring theme this season for Jones, whos just fifth in points because he has finished 21st or worse six times already. But as one of the few drivers who knows that hell be in the playoffs no matter what happens over the next two months, Jones has the luxury of focusing more on performance than results.These last few weeks are for us, honestly, to have a little bit of fun, he said. Relax, try to win few more races and make sure our stuff is where it needs to be, which it has been. Beyond that, its nice to be in this position where you can go out and race for wins.
