THINGS ARE GOING WELL IF: Nick Montgomery can go deep into the game. Much like Trevor Holder yesterday, the Dawgs are hoping for another strong outing from their starter. This isn't as much of a necessity as it was for game one, but getting a strong outing out of Montgomery and then letting Dean Weaver set up Joshua Fields to close out a game for the national championship would certainly be what Georgia is looking to do.
Matt Cerione or Joey Lewis are hitting. Both came through huge last night in Georgia's 7-6 win, and the Dawgs definitely need at least one of them to get some hits at the bottom of the lineup.
THINGS ARE GOING NOT SO WELL IF: Georgia's hitters are going through their at-bats quickly, especially if those are quick outs. Fresno State's pitching staff is almost completely depleted. The more the west coast Dogs are able to get out of any individual pitcher is additional rest for the rest of their staff – an advantage that Georgia doesn't need to give to its opponent.
The game is tight going into the late innings. Georgia needs to jump out ahead in this game early, and put Fresno out of it. Last night's loss was crushing for Fresno, but if Georgia lets them hang around late into the game – anything could happen and the Dawgs could squander a tremendous advantage and opportunity.
It doesn't happen at all. It's not a beautiful, sunny day in Omaha. Hopefully the weather will allow the game to be played, but that's not likely to be what Fresno State is hoping for. An extra day of rest would be a tremendous blessing for them, so it is likely they're hoping the rain and lightning continue on into the night.
