Starter Beau Vaughan had a decent outing, giving up one run in his four innings pitched. Brett Bordes came in to pitch the fifth inning, and gave up one run while lasting 2/3 of an inning. Robbie McClellan, Jered Liebeck, Bryce Kartler, and Javy Lopez all saw time out of the bullpen.
ASU took a quick 2-0 lead in the second inning when Dennis Wyrick tripled, scoring Mike Guerrero and Jeff Larish. With a 2-1 lead in the third inning, Jeremy West and Steve Garrabrants would cross the plate to increase the lead to three. Grand slams by Jeremy West in the sixth inning and Steve Garrabrants in the seventh inning put the game away for ASU. Andre Ethier belted two home runs in the game, coming in the fifth and seventh innings.
Jeff Larish hit four doubles on the day, going four for four. Ethier and West also had multi-hit games, while continuing their hit streaks to 18 and 17 games. Dustin Pedroia, after hitting one for four in the game, won the Pac-10 batting title with a .418 average.
Earlier in the day, the Devils found out that they will be hosting a regional, to be played at Diablo Stadium, starting next Friday at 7 PM. On Monday ASU will learn if they're one of the top eight seeds that would also host a super regional. Should they win the regional this weekend.
