ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Nick Montgomery pitched a four-hit shutout
and Matt Olson, Matt Cerione and Rich Poythress hit two-run homers,
powering Georgia past Georgia Tech 8-0 on Sunday night in the NCAA
Georgia avoided elimination to force a final game against
Georgia Tech Monday. Montgomery stranded runners on second and third in the third inning by striking out Jeff Rowland. The strikeout started a string of 17 straight batters retired by Montgomery before Charlie Blackmon singled with one out in the ninth. Montgomery retired the next two batters to complete his second win over Georgia Tech in three weeks.
