Fresno State 2, Georgia 0 (2nd inning)

OMAHA, Neb. -- Steve Detwiler blasted a two-run homer in the second inning to give Fresno State a quick 2-0 lead in the deciding game of the College World Series finals.

Detwiler, the grandson of former big-league pitcher Jim Maloney, hammered a deep blast that just eluded a desparate attempt by Georgia right fielder Matt Olson. It scored Steve Susdorf, who had reached on an error by first baseman Rich Poythress that started the inning.

It was Detwiler's 11th home run of the season and second of the CWS. His blast came on a full count.
