Arizona baseball: Reviewing a defining Super Regional and a look at Florida State

The Arizona Wildcats, after blasting through the NCAA regionals, got a tougher challenge from the St. John's Red Storm in the Super Regionals, but in a sweep, Andy Lopez's baseball team showed signs that they have the mental fortitude to challenge the Florida State Seminoles in the College World Series.

With a schedule yet to be released as of Monday afternoon, the Wildcats will play a high-scoring Seminoles team on Friday or Saturday. FSU smacked the Stanford Cardinal by scores of 17-1 and 18-7 in a two-game sweep of the Tallahassee, Fla., Super Regional and could quite possibly be the favorite.

But don't count out the Wildcats. Ace Kurt Heyer set the tone in the 7-6, come-from-behind Game 1 against St. John's by surviving 17 hits through 9.1 innings. He gave UA a never-relinquishing attitude that served the Wildcats well in Game 2's 7-4 win, where it was Arizona who survived the Johnnies, who chipped away at an early deficit.
