For the second straight game at the 2008 Men’s College World Series a ninth-inning outburst propelled a team to victory as eight-seeded Georgia scored four runs in the top of the ninth to clinch a 7-4 victory over Miami (Fla.), Saturday night.Leading 4-3 with a runner at second base and one out, Miami pitcher Carlos Gutierrez struck out Georgia’s Robbie O’Bryan but the pitch got away from catcher Yasmani Grandal. The wild pitch allowed O’Bryan to reach and put runners on first and third with one out. Lyle Allen then singled through the left side to tie the game at 4-4. Gutierrez then got David Thoms to ground back to the mound but Gutierrez’s throw to first was wide and rolled into right field allowing two runs to score and sending Thoms to third. Georgia 3B Ryan Peisel’s single over the drawn in infield drove in Thoms and capped the four-run ninth.
