ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Diallo Fon's three-run homer in the eighth
inning highlighted an Arizona comeback for a 9-8 victory over
Georgia today, giving the Wildcats the rubber game of the
three-game season-opening series.
Fon's homer came after the Wildcats had rallied for five runs in
the seventh to erase a 4-0 deficit. That rally featured a two-run
single by pinch hitter Mike Weldon and a bases-loaded double by
C.J. Ziegler.
In the Georgia ninth, Ryan Peisel had a solo homer off Mike
Colla (1-0) and Rich Poythress hit a two-run homer off Daniel
Schlereth before Joey Lewis got the final run with an RBI pinch
Colla gave up two runs on five hits in 2 2/3 innings. He fanned
three and walked two.
Peisel also had a two-run single for the Bulldogs in the third
Georgia starter Nathan Moreau blanked the Wildcats on three hits
for six innings.
