ARIZONA QUICK HITS ...
► Head coach Andy Lopez is seeking to become only the second coach to win a Division I baseball national title at two different schools. Augie Garrido is the only to accomplish the feat so far, winning with Cal State Fullerton in 1979, 1984 and 1995 and with Texas in 2002 and 2005. 

► Arizona is attempting to become the 14th different team and ninth different school to win a national title without losing a game in the NCAA Tournament. Those to accomplish the feat so far are California (1947), Texas (1949), Oklahoma (1951), Southern California (1973, 1978), Miami (FL) (1982, 1999, 2001), LSU (1991, 1996, 2000), Cal State Fullerton (1995) and South Carolina (2011).

► Arizona is 21-5 in 2012 when scoring in the first inning and 27-6 when scoring first.  The Wildcats are 14-3 when hitting a home run in 2012. 

SOUTH CAROLINA QUICK HITS ...
► South Carolina’s batters have notched 14 walks with just 11 strikeouts over the past three games. Gamecock pitchers, meanwhile, have punched out 33 and walked just nine over the past four contests.

► The home run by Refsnyder on Sunday was the first allowed by South Carolina since June 2, ending 77.0-inning homer-free streak for Gamecock hurlers.

► South Carolina’s 30-3 (.909) record during the past three seasons in the NCAA Tournament is the second best three-year postseason record in NCAA history (must make tournament all three years to qualify). The best mark belongs to Miami (FL), which went 22-2 (.917) from 1999-01.

► Evan Marzilli (1-for-4 in the game) now has 67 career at bats at the MCWS, seventh most all-time.
