In The Region:
Kent State’s baseball team returned home Thursday night, with their season ending after a 4-1 loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks in the College World Series. The elimination game was rained out Wednesday and carried over to a Thursday morning start in Omaha. 

Coach Scott Stricklin says much of the talent behind this year’s Cinderella season will carry over to next year.

“We could have as many as 26 players from this roster coming back. And to be honest with you, before this season started, we felt like next year was the team that might make another run. Last year we were very talented, [and] we were very disappointed we got knocked off in the regional finals. We felt like this year would be a good team that could win another championship, but to go to Omaha, it's what every coach talks about but most of us are dreaming about it. And to actually get there, it's been amazing."

Two-time defending champ South Carolina beat undefeated Arkansas late Thursday night, and must beat the Razorbacks again on Friday to make it back to the championships. The game was the shortest at the College World Series since 2003.
