The dust has settled and the baseball, grilling and partying are over. The first College World Series held at the brand new TD Ameritrade Park wrapped up with South Carolina's 5-2 win over Florida on June 28, completing a championship series sweep and giving the Gamecocks their second straight title.
UNO walked three of the first four BYU batters and allowed the first five hitters to score en route to dropping their first home game of the season 19-9. The Mavs came back to get within 8-4 but a six-run top of the fifth was more than UNO could withstand.
Two weeks after UNO ended North Dakota State's 16-game winning streak, the Mavs have yet to find their own winning ways and have lost eight of their last nine. In the middle of a stretch that includes 15 games on the road, the Mavs lost games last week 8-4 and 1-0 to Minnesota, then 4-1, 4-3 and 5-4 in 11 innings to future Summit League opponent Oakland.
