Georgia Wins, Takes Command of Its CWS Bracket

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Matt Cerione's two-out, bases-loaded single drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning and three Georgia pitchers combined for six innings of shutout relief to lead the Bulldogs to a 4-3 victory over Stanford in the College World Series on Monday night.

The Bulldogs (43-23-1) took control of Bracket 1 and will wait until Friday to play the winner of Wednesday's Miami-Stanford game. A win in that game would send Georgia to the best-of-three championship round that begins next Monday.

Stephen Dodson, Alex McRee (7-1) and Joshua Fields held Stanford to a single and four other baserunners after starter Nick Montgomery left in the fourth inning.
