TEMPE, Ariz. - For the second straight game, the Sun Devil pitching staff held the UAB Blazers bats in check, leading them to a 13-2 victory at Winkles Field-Packard Stadium at Brock Ballpark. Brian Flores did not allow a run over his six innings of work, improving his record to 2-0. With the win, ASU improves to 9-3 on the season.
The Arizona State offense scored early and often, pushing a run across in six of the eight innings they batted. Eric Sogard got things started in the first, singling home Andrew Romine to make it 1-0 ASU. The Devils would make it 2-0 in the second on an RBI double by Romine that scored Rocky Laguna. ASU would put three up in the third to make it 5-0. CJ Retherford was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to push the first run across, then a throwing error by the catcher would allow two more to score.
ASU would score three more in the fifth and four in the sixth to make it 12-0 before the Blazers would score twice in the seventh.
The Devils and Blazers will close out the three-game series tomorrow afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Winkles Field-Packard Stadium at Brock Ballpark.
