OMAHA–In the highest-scoring College World Series game since 2001, Fresno State erased an early five-run deficit and rolled to a 19-10 win against Georgia, forcing a decisive third game of the CWS finals. Fresno trailed 5-0 heading into the third but exploded for six runs in the frame, capped by Tommy Mendonca’s three-run homer to right field. Georgia tied the score at 6-6 in the fourth, but it was pretty much all Fresno from that point on. FS scored five in the fourth, highlighted by Danny Muno’s two-run triple, and four more in the sixth, capped by Steve Susdorf’s two-run homer.
Perhaps the most jarring statistic is that Fresno State committed three errors after playing spectacular defense for its first five games in Omaha. Of course, none of them were particularly relevant. A 19-hit attack made them even less so.
The feelings I expressed earlier about this being a great show for college baseball have long since been replaced by feelings of fatigue. This has been a long game, lasting nearly four hours after the start was delayed 26 minutes by rain.
We’ll have plenty more on this game shortly.
