OMAHA–It was only a matter of time before Fresno State was going to start converting its scoring opportunities into runs, especially against a tired UNC bullpen. The Bulldogs have left 11 runners on base, but they have scored in each of the last four innings, including two against a fatigued Alex White in the sixth. Tommy Menonca is on a rampage; he has reached base safely in all four plate appearances and is 3-for-3 with two doubles and four RBIs.
Fresno State leads 6-1 and has gone to its steady bullpen. Clayton Allison turned in a terrific start for the Bulldogs, allowing just one run on six hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings. Give Fresno State coach Mike Batesole credit for waiting to use Allison until he was truly ready instead of rushing him back from his sore shoulder.
