OMAHA, Neb. (KOLD News 13) - The University of Arizona and Stanford squared off Monday in an elimination game at the College World Series.

Stanford jumped on Arizona early for 10 runs over the third and fourth innings of 14-5 win. The loss sends the Wildcats home after two games in Omaha,

The teams were scoreless until the top of the third when Stanford sent 10 to the plate and chased Arizona starter Garrett Irvin. He gave up five runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings.

Chandler Murphy came in and gave up two runs before getting out of the inning.

Stanford struck again in the top of the fourth with three more runs to chase Murphy.

Arizona got on the board in the bottom of the fourth when Branden Boissiere and Tony Bullard walked and scored on Daniel Susac’s double.

Arizona added three runs in the bottom of the sixth on a double by Susac, triple by Kobe Kato and a sacrifice fly by Tanner O’Tremba.

But Stanford came right back and scored four runs in the top of the seventh on a single and three-run homer.

It was the fourth matchup between the teams this season and the Wildcats are now 1-3 against the Cardinal.

It was Arizona’s 18th trip to the CWS and third since 2012. The Wildcats, with four national titles overall, were runners-up in their last trip in 2016.

It is the Cardinal’s 17th CWS trip and first since 2008. Stanford won two national titles (1987 and 1988) and finished as runner-up in 2000, 2001 and 2003.
