In the Devil half of the third, Dustin Pedroia hit his third home run of the year, cutting the New Mexico lead to 5-3. In the fourth inning, New Mexico added four more runs, while the Devils scored two when ASU drew two back-to-back bases loaded walks. The Devils would cut the lead to 9-7 in the seventh inning when Rod Allen Jr. and Frank Mesa scored off of unearned runs, but New Mexico added two more insurance runs and won the game 11-7.
Jeremy West was the only Devil with a multi-hit game on the night, while starting his first career game behind the plate. Dustin Pedroia extended his hitting streak to 11 games with his 1 for 4 performance with 2 RBI's.
