Fresno State eliminated from NCAA Tournament

FRESNO, Calif.

But today it was the Waves flipping the script of Fresno State.

Diamond Dogs jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning when Central grad Jordan Brink brought home Austin Wynns with the RBI single.

Then in the fifth inning, bases loaded for Kenny Wise, but there weren't loaded for long

The clutch gapper to right center scores three, Diamond dogs sittin' pretty up 5-0.

But the wheels would fall off in the top of the ninth. Starter Cody Kendall still pitching allowed a bases loaded walk.

Trent Garrison relieves him and gives up a RB single to make it 5-4.

Pepperdine's Matt Forgatch would deliver the fatal blow to the Bulldogs season. The grand slam over the wall in left was a no doubter that capped Pepperdine's six-run ninth inning.

It's Fresno State suffering an epic final-inning collapse to fall to the waves 8-5.

After all the elimination-game success this season it's almost unbelievable that this kind of comeback would happen to the Bulldogs.

Fresno state ends its season at 31-and-28.
