Pepperdine rallies late to beat Fresno State 8-5

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Matt Forgatch hit a grand slam in the top of the ninth inning to highlight a six-run rally that gave Pepperdine an 8-5 victory over Fresno State in an elimination game of the Stanford Regional on Sunday.

Sam Meyer and Floyd Given each drove in two runs for the second-seeded Waves (36-22), who advanced to Sunday night's championship game against top seed Stanford.

Michael Swanner (3-3) recorded the final four outs to gain the victory. Starter Corey Miller lasted 5 1-3 innings, allowing five runs - all unearned - on seven hits. He struck out two and did not walk a batter.

Kenneth Wise had two hits and drove in three runs for the fourth-seeded Bulldogs (31-28). Austin Wynns and Jordan Brink also drove in runs.

Fresno State's Cody Kendall (4-4) allowed six runs on nine hits in 8-plus innings.
