OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Joey Lewis hit a tiebreaking double in
Georgia's four-run eighth inning, and the Bulldogs came from three
runs down to defeat Fresno State 7-6 in Game 1 of the College World
Series finals Monday night.

Fresno State appeared to take control in the top of the eighth
when it scored three runs to go up 6-3. But Georgia wasn't
finished, and now stands one win away from a second national
championship to go with the one it won in 1990.

Fresno State, 4-0 in elimination games in the NCAA tournament,
will try to keep its improbable postseason run alive when the teams
meet in Game 2 on Tuesday.
