The ASU men take their first game behind a solid pitching performance from Merrill Kelly.
Kelly settled down after a tough first inning, allowing only three hits and two runs (one earned) while matching his season high with eight strikeouts. He got the win to improve to 10-2, as he joins Seth Blair and Jake Borup to give ASU three double-digit game winners on the season. Mitchell Lambson pitched a perfect ninth, striking out two, to finish off the victory.
Kole Calhoun led the way at the plate, hitting his team-leading 14th home run of the season, a three-run shot in the third inning. Zack MacPhee had three hits and Riccio Torrez added two hits, while Deven Marrero drove in two runs.
