OMAHA–After Fresno State broke a 3-3 tie with three runs in the top of the eighth, Georgia answered right back with four in the bottom of the frame to win the first game of the CWS Finals, 7-6. It was one of the best games of the CWS so far, with sparkling defensive plays and clutch hits on both sides, but in the end Georgia’s big stars carried the Dawgs to the victory. All-America shortstop Gordon Beckham’s two-run homer got Georgia’s eighth-inning rally going, and All-America closer Joshua Fields nailed down the save in the ninth, while Fresno closer Brandon Burke could not hold a three-run lead an inning earlier.
We’ll have plenty more on this terrific game shortly.
