OMAHA – The drama the College World Series got even better Saturday night at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium.
The Fresno State Bulldogs, the Cinderella story of this year’s NCAA baseball tournament, went to the wire against the No. 2 team in the nation in a classic baseball game that featured great defensive plays, solid and smart pitching and timely hits. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, North Carolina came away with a 4-3 victory.
The two teams will meet again Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. PT to determine which will play Georgia in the College World Series championship series. The loss was the first for the Bulldogs, who entered the game with a 2-0 record. The Tar Heels are 3-1 in the tournament and improved to 54-13 overall.
The Bulldogs joined Georgia, Stanford and North Carolina on the NCAA’s “final four” of College baseball. Georia eliminated Stanford with a 10-8 Saturday afternoon to advance to the CWS Championship series.
Prior to Saturday’s game, the Bulldog played just two games in eight days of the College World Series. Fresno State was scheduled to play Friday night, but a severe thunderstorm hit Omaha Thursday night that forced the postponement of the North Carolina vs. LSU game. The Tar Heels won that contest Friday 7-3 on a ninth-inning grand slam homerun.
