They’re a good team, one of the top teams in the country, and they came out and put it on us early. Murphy would get the next two batters out, but Kyle Froemke doubled in Greg Fuchs and Matthew Gretler smashed the second home run of the inning to push the lead to 4-0. The damage then became self-inflicted following an Andy Armstrong double as Sun Devil right fielder Hunter Jump lost a routine fly ball in the sun and saw it bounce of his wrist.
After going down two games in their series against Arizona State, the Beavers finally got a big win Sunday afternoon when an early flurry of hitting gave the team an insurmountable lead. Oregon State scored 11 runs in the first four innings, setting up an 11-4 win and moving the team to 33-17 overall and 15-10 in the Pac-12. After a quick first, the second inning started with a Troy Claunch home run to center field.
The Arizona State Sun Devils have added yet another transfer and it comes at a position they have placed an emphasis on in its recent recruiting efforts. The addition is tight end Geor'quarius Spivey of Mississippi State who will have three years of eligibility remaining. He reportedly picked ASU over Auburn, Indiana and Texas Tech.
