Cal St Fullerton rallies twice; Eliminates Tech 7-5

OMAHA - Cory Vanderhook drove in a pair of runs with a two-out infield single in the midst of a three-run ninth-inning rally as Cal State Fullerton came from behind twice to eliminate Tech with a 7-5 victory at the College World Series. Matt Wieters, who gave the Jackets a 5-4 lead with a seventh-inning solo home run, took the loss in relief.
