OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Georgia scored four runs in the ninth inning
-- two on Miami closer Carlos Gutierrez's throwing error -- and the
Bulldogs came from behind to beat the top-seeded Hurricanes 7-4 in
the College World Series on Saturday night.
Gutierrez, the Minnesota Twins' first-round draft pick, came on
to start the ninth to protect Miami's one-run lead. He couldn't do
it, and Miami lost for the first time in 46 games in which it led
after eight innings.
Georgia (42-23-1) advanced to a game against Stanford on Monday.
Miami will try to stay alive in Bracket 1 when it meets Florida
State in an elimination game, also Monday.
