Freshman RJ Ybarra knocked a two-out RBI single through the middle in the top of the ninth inning and freshman RHP Ryan Burr recorded his sixth save of the season to secure a 4-3 win over the Shockers on Tuesday night. He is now tied with Ryan Bradley (1995) for fourth on the school's freshman saves list. ASU scored four runs with two outs in the opening inning of Wednesday's to hold on for a 4-2 win.
