OMAHA, Neb. -- Coastal Carolina showed that a baseball program from a school outside the power conferences can play with the best, and be the best.All my brothers in arms at the mid-majors, theyve been wearing my telephone out the whole week: `Wear the banner for us. Show us it can be done, Chanticleers coach Gary Gilmore said after his team beat Arizona 4-3 in the deciding Game 3 of the College World Series finals Thursday.Coastal Carolina won its first national championship in any sport, and it came in the Chanticleers 14th national tournament appearance in Gilmores 21 seasons at the school.The title also was the first in a team sport in the 33-year history of the Big South Conference. The Big South could savor the accomplishment for only about eight hours. The Chanticleers became members of the Sun Belt Conference on Friday.The Chanticleers have a .680 winning percentage since 2000, ranking among the best in the nation. Theyre the first non-power conference team since Fresno State in 2008 to win the title. In the last 50 years, the only other non-power conference baseball champions are Cal State Fullerton (1979, 1995, 2004) Wichita State (1989), Pepperdine (1992) and Rice (2003).Me personally, I dont think weve been a mid-major baseball program for a while, Gilmore said. I surely dont tell that to my kids. I tell them I think were a top four or five ACC-caliber club, that we can play with the SEC at times, that we dont shy away from anyone.Were a mid-major because were a 10,000-population school and we had (FBC) football, and you kind of get stigmatized by that.Coastal Carolina capitalized on two errors on the same play to score four unearned runs in the sixth inning of a game delayed a day by bad weather.It was worth the wait.Whenever I die, Ill know this group of guys here, they willed themselves to be the national champion, Gilmore said. It was just meant to be, no doubt. If there is such a thing as a team of destiny, this group is it.Coastal Carolina (55-18) became the first team since Minnesota in 1956 to win the title in its first CWS appearance. Arizona (49-24) was trying for its second national title since 2012 but came up just short in a season in which it was picked to finish ninth in the Pac-12.Amazing season, and theyre a deserving champion, first-year coach Jay Johnson said of the Chanticleers. We played as good as we possibly could this year, and theyre the best team weve played, in my opinion.Andrew Beckwith (15-1), the national leader in wins, went 5 2/3 innings after pitching two complete games and picked up his third victory of the CWS. He was named the Most Outstanding Player.Hes been coaching for 21 years, and he deserves every bit of it, Beckwith said of Gilmore. We got him to Omaha and we got him a national championship. The senior class, the hard work in the fall, the dedication of the guys who dont play much. It doesnt go unnoticed. It was a full team effort the whole College World Series, and we got it done.Alex Cunningham earned his first save, striking out Ryan Haug with a full-count fastball to end the game after Arizona had pulled within one in the bottom of the ninth. When Haug swung and missed, Cunningham turned to his dugout, beat his chest with his fist three times and saluted before flipping his glove away to start the celebration.The running joke is that in high school I lost the state championship three times in a row. I was not going to lose this one, I promise you that, Cunningham said.Arizona, which came into the day with just two errors in seven CWS games, had second baseman Cody Ramer commit two on the same play in the sixth inning. He couldnt get a handle on a grounder, allowing David Parrett to score from third. Then Ramer tried to get Michael Paez running from second to third, but he overthrew Kyle Lewis. That allowed Paez to come home. G.K. Young then launched a no-doubt homer into the seats above the right-field bullpen for a 4-0 lead.The Wildcats cut the lead in half with two unearned runs in the bottom half of the sixth against a tiring Beckwith. Arizonas Bobby Dalbec (11-6) worked 5 2/3 innings, striking out eight to increase his CWS total to 26 in 20 2/3 innings.Arizonas first two batters in the bottom of the ninth reached base against Cunningham, and Gibbons sacrifice fly made it a one-run game with two outs. Ryan Aguilar then doubled into the left-field corner, but Ramer was held at third because Anthony Marks was able to get the ball back to the infield so quickly.Thats the play of the season in college baseball, Johnson said. We play aggressively, but Cody would have been out by 100 feet -- and I know its only 90 feet. I cant believe the play that was made.ARIZONA CATCHER HURTArizona catcher Cesar Salazar left the game at the end of the seventh inning after getting hit on the top of his head by Paezs bat on a swing-and-miss strike three. Salazar briefly lay face down and was tended to by an athletic trainer. He walked off under his own power and was replaced by Haug.ALL-CWS TEAMParrett, Coastal Carolina, catcher; Aguilar, Arizona, first base; Ramer, Arizona, second base; Zach Remillard, Coastal Carolina, third base; Ryan Merrill, TCU, shortstop; Gibbons, Arizona, outfield; Marks, Coastal Carolina, outfield; Jared Oliva, Arizona, outfield; Luken Baker, TCU, designated hitter; JC Cloney, Arizona, pitcher; Beckwith, Coastal Carolina, pitcher and Most Outstanding Player.COME ONE, COME ALLBecause of the noon start on a weekday -- caused by the rain-and-lightning postponement Wednesday night -- people attending the U.S. Olympic swim trials across the street at CenturyLink Center were admitted for free to the outfield seats.
