Fresno State 11, Georgia 6 (4th inning)

OMAHA, Neb. -- Pesky Fresno State leadoff hitter Danny Muno provided a key two-run triple that sparked a five-run uprising that boosted the Bulldogs to an 11-6 lead over Georgia after four innings.

After Steve Detwiler and Jordan Ribera led off the inning with singles, Muno ripped a deep shot up the right-center field alley to score two runs.

Muno scored when Eric Wetzel singled off Georgia shortstop Gordon Beckham's glove for the third run of the inning.

Fresno State added two more runs later in the inning when Ryan Overland's bloop fell between Beckham and Lyle Allen for a two-run single. Overland was injured on the play and was replaced at catcher by Danny Grubb for Fresno State.

• Another note from Mendonca's huge three-run homer in the third inning. It was Mendonca's fourth homer of the CWS, tying a record reached eight times previously. The most recent player to slam four homers in a College World Series was Logan Johnson of Louisville, who tied the mark in three games in 2007.
