Grand slam powers Cal State Fullerton

  Cal State Fullerton won its eighth game in a row with a victory against Nebraska.

STILLWATER, Okla.  — J.D. Davis hit a two-out, eighth-inning grand slam, lifting Cal State Fullerton to a 5-1 victory against Nebraska in the first game of the Stillwater regional Friday.

Third-seeded Fullerton (33-22) won its eighth consecutive and advanced to Saturday's winners' bracket matchup against the winner of Friday night's Oklahoma State-Binghamton contest.

No. 2 Nebraska (40-20) will play in the consolation bracket Saturday.

Davis, who had already ended Cornhuskers starter Chance Sinclair's no-hitter in the seventh, was the first batter to face Nebraska reliever Josh Roeder. He promptly sent a 2-1 pitch about 30 feet over the left field wall to clear the bases.

Nebraska led 1-0 when Sinclair lost his no-hitter and shutout in the seventh. After Fullerton's Keegan Dale reached by error, Davis lined a single to left field, extending his hitting streak to 13 games. One out later, Davi Olmedo-Barrera's RBI single up the middle brought home Dale.

MLB in Omaha game brings back fond memories for former College World Series stars — and creates new ones

The first MLB game ever played in this state — Royals vs. Tigers — was designed to serve as something of a lead-in for the College World Series, and a bridge between the big leagues and the college game. A multi-level celebration of the game. There was pomp and circumstance and a full house and all eight CWS teams lining up around the infield before the game, with a player from each throwing the ceremonial first pitch. Great visual.
