CWS: A wild game

By Mark Etheridge - June 17, 2006

The second longest in CWS history.

Fullerton had five baserunners in the 11th without scoring.

After scoring five runs in the first three innings, Fullerton did not score again.

Fullerton used their #2 starter Lauren Gagnier - who had the no-hitter until late against Missouri last weekend - in relief. Dustin Miller will start their Sunday game against Georgia Tech.

Titan coach George Horton said his hitters took good approaches against the all-American pitcher Andrew Miller but "got greedy" against the three righty relievers hitting too many flyballs into the wind.

North Carolina started the runners in the thirteenth and got a bad hop single from Reid Fronk to put men on the corners. Josh Horton followed with the game winner.
