ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Brandon Moorhead and Bill Sharpton combined on a four-hitter Monday to lead Georgia to an 8-3 victory over Florida State and the final berth in the College World Series.
Georgia (47-20) won the best-of-three Super Regional 2-1, rebounding from an 11-6 loss earlier Monday in the completion of a game suspended Sunday because of thunderstorms.
Florida State (47-19) was denied its fourth straight trip to the World Series.
The Bulldogs earned their first appearance in Omaha since 1990, when they captured the only national title in school history.
In the deciding game, Georgia led 4-2 in the fifth inning when Jody Pollock, the No. 9 hitter, drove in three runs with a bases loaded double. Pollock homered in Game 2 and drove in six runs in the series.
