Longtime major league reliever Troy Percival is the new baseball coach at UC Riverside. The Highlanders announced Percival's return Tuesday. Percival grew up near Riverside and played three seasons for the Highlanders before the Angels drafted him as a catcher in 1990. Percival went on to a 14-year career, mostly as the Angels' closer.

Miami says probe into PEDs found no wrongdoing (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 30, 2014, 11:06 pm]
The University of Miami said Monday that an investigation into former strength coach Jimmy Goins found no evidence that he provided performance-enhancing drugs to athletes. Goins was one of the people linked to the Biogenesis scandal, a story broken by Miami New Times in January 2013. Goins was alleged to have purchased PEDs from the now-closed clinic.

O'Connor: Loss in CWS final will not define Cavs (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 27, 2014, 12:45 am]
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Virginia coach Brian O'Connor says his team's one-run loss in the final game of the College World Series will not define his players.

Young players led charge to Vandy's championship (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 26, 2014, 6:50 pm]

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin figured last year was his baseball program's best chance to win its first national championship. The 2014 team is the one that got the job done.

Vandy's lone homer produces national championship (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 26, 2014, 8:01 am]
Dansby Swanson and Rhett Wiseman came oh-so close to hitting home runs for Vanderbilt early in the College World Series. John Norwood finally got a ball to clear the fence, and his timing was impeccable - in the third and deciding game of the CWS finals. His tie-breaking homer into the left-field bullpen against Nick Howard in the eighth inning Wednesday night at TD Ameritrade Park delivered a 3-2 victory over Virginia that gave the Commodores' their first national championship in a men's sport. ''I just was hoping that it didn't have enough top spin that it would hit the fence,'' coach Tim Corbin said.

Virginia loses 3-2 to Vandy in championship game (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 26, 2014, 5:21 am]
Virginia's run at a national championship came down to one inning. After Vanderbilt's John Norwood hit a tie-breaking homer in the top of the eighth, the Cavaliers loaded the bases with one out in the bottom half. They couldn't score against Vandy's Adam Ravenelle and went on to lose 3-2 in the third and deciding game of the College World Series finals on Wednesday night. ''An outstanding final series between the two of us,'' Virginia coach Brian O'Connor said.

John Norwood's home run in the top of the eighth inning gave Vanderbilt the lead, and the Commodores beat Virginia 3-2 on Wednesday night for their first national championship. Norwood turned on Nick Howard's 97 mph fastball and sent it into the left field bullpen to break a 2-2 tie in the third and deciding game of the College World Series finals. It was Norwood's third homer of the year, his first since April 19, and Vanderbilt's first since May 16. It also was only the third home run in 16 CWS games and the 22nd in 72 games by the Commodores (51-21).

CWS official says attendance dip is not a concern (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 25, 2014, 11:25 pm]
The head of the local organizing group for the College World Series says there is no concern about the drop in attendance this year. Entering Game 3 of the CWS finals on Wednesday, the average crowd was 21,959 at TD Ameritrade Park. ''Actually, we think it's quite an accomplishment to average 22,000 people watching college baseball where there is no home team,'' CWS Inc. president Jack Diesing Jr. said Wednesday. Diesing said last year's attendance was an ''anomaly.'' LSU and Mississippi State were among the eight teams in 2013, and each school brought along strong fan followings.

The offense has been there for Virginia in the College World Series finals. With the Cavaliers' season on the line, Brandon Waddell pitched a five-hit complete game in a 7-2 victory over Vanderbilt on Tuesday night that forced a decisive Game 3. Projected starting pitchers are Josh Sborz (6-4) for Virginia against Carson Fulmer (7-1). Waddell's first nine-inning complete game came a night after Nathan Kirby imploded in Vanderbilt's nine-run third inning in a 9-8 loss to the Commodores on Monday.

Vandy's 7-2 loss to Virginia forces Game 3 at CWS (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 25, 2014, 5:04 am]
Vanderbilt had a one-run lead and a chance to add to it in the fourth inning in Game 2 of the College World Series finals. Rhett Wiseman couldn't get a bunt down to move over a runner, and he struck out looking. Then John Norwood got picked off at second base. ''The inning crashed,'' coach Tim Corbin said.

Brandon Waddell limited Vanderbilt to five hits in his first nine-inning complete game, Virginia knocked out first-round draft pick Tyler Beede in the seventh, and the Cavaliers evened the College World Series finals with a 7-2 victory Tuesday night. Virginia (53-15) forced the third game after Vanderbilt (50-21) rode a nine-run third inning to a 9-8 victory in the opener. His first official complete game came in a six-inning, rain-shortened game against Monmouth in March. Kenny Towns and John La Prise drove in two runs apiece, and the Cavaliers finished with 13 hits against Beede (8-8) and three relievers.

Freshman steadies Vandy in 1st outing in 5 weeks (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 24, 2014, 11:50 pm]
If Vanderbilt wins the national title at the College World Series, the Commodores will be able to point to not one but two improbable contributors. John Kilichowski's turn came in Monday's 9-8 win over Virginia. ''We talked as a group about trying to get a Tyler Campbell from the pitching staff that hasn't been in there yet that could pick us up, and Johnny certainly did that,'' Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin said. Campbell is the third baseman who has starred as the replacement for Xavier Turner, who was ruled ineligible Friday for violating NCAA rules.

Jim Morris to coach through 2018 at Miami (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 24, 2014, 9:21 pm]
Jim Morris, who has led Miami to 21 straight trips to the NCAA tournament and guided the Hurricanes to the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title this year, has agreed to coach the Hurricanes through 2018. Miami announced a three-year extension for Morris on Tuesday. After the 2018 season, longtime assistant Gino DiMare will succeed Morris as head coach. Morris has taken Miami to the College World Series 11 times, and says ''but there is more work to be done and more championships to be won.'' DiMare has been part of Miami baseball for two decades, first as a player and since as an assistant.

Campbell star keeps shining for Commodores at CWS (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 24, 2014, 7:29 am]
It's hard to believe Tyler Campbell came into the College World Series with two hits all season. He's got five in Omaha so far, none bigger than his bases-loaded double that highlighted Vanderbilt's nine-run third inning in a 9-8 win over Virginia in Game 1 of the CWS finals Monday night. He's played in three games,'' Commodores coach Tim Corbin said. ''He takes advantage of key situations... He's played with a great heartbeat.'' Campbell, who appeared in only 14 games before the CWS, was put into the lineup as the fill-in for third baseman Xavier Turner, who was declared ineligible on Friday for violating NCAA rules.

Virginia loses 9-8 to Vandy in CWS finals opener (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: June 24, 2014, 5:21 am]
Virginia's pitching has been outstanding for 41 of the Cavaliers' 42 innings at the College World Series. The Cavaliers paid a high price for the one inning it wasn't. Vanderbilt capitalized on Virginia starter Nathan Kirby's sudden loss of control to score nine runs in the third Monday night, then held off the Cavaliers to win 9-8 in Game 1 of the CWS finals. ''This is why it's a national championship series rather than a national championship game,'' Virginia coach Brian O'Connor said.

Vanderbilt capitalized on Virginia starter Nathan Kirby's sudden loss of control to score nine runs in the third inning, then held off the Cavaliers to win 9-8 in Game 1 of the College World Series finals Monday night. The Commodores (50-20) can win their first national championship in a men's sport with a win Tuesday night. Tyler Campbell continued his improbable breakout for the Commodores, doubling twice in the third inning. His second double came off reliever Whit Mayberry with the bases loaded to put Vanderbilt up 9-2.
