COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Jon Prosinski threw a six-hit shutout Friday, leading Seton Hall past Arizona 4-0 in the opening came of the College Station regional.

The third-seeded Pirates (34-23) scored all their runs in the fourth inning against the second-seeded Wildcats (36-20). Sean Gusrang started the inning with a double down the right-field line off of Kurt Heyer, and Dale Anderson and Giuseppe Papaccio each followed with singles, the latter scoring Gusrang from third.

Anderson later scored on Will Walsh's fielder's choice.

Arizona catcher Jett Bandy tried throwing out Walsh at second on a steal, but the ball bounced off Walsh and into left-center field. Papaccio and Walsh both scored and Bandy was tagged with the error.

Prosinski, working in 101-degree heat, allowed only singles while striking out three and walking one.
