SB: Cats pushed to the brink

TUCSON, AZ -

Paige Palkovich hit a grand slam with one out in the bottom of the 7th to push Minnesota past Arizona 5-2 in their NCAA Regional Final on Sunday at Hillenbrand Stadium.

The victory for the Golden Gophers forces an If Necessary Game 7 tonight with the winner advancing to play LSU in the Super Regionals.

The Tigers needed two wins over Arizona State today to move on in the NCAA Tournament and got it done in Baton Rouge with a 5-0 victory and a 4-3 walk-off win in nine innings.

The Wildcats are trying to win their 30th regional championship. UA will be the home team in tonight's second game.
