Baseball Series Roundup: ASU vs. USD, 2-0 sweep

ASU geared up for a short midweet two game set against the Toreros in Tempe.

Game 1 was Franzblou against USD's mishmash of not-so-good pitchers. We ended up winning 8-7 in 11 innings after Franzblou turned in a decent outing, and some errors cost us a chance of winning in standard frames.

MacPhee and Calhoun both had homers as our bats led the way in this one.  9 walks by ASU hitters forced USD to blow through their bullpen as their starter was pulled after 3 innings. Carlos Ramirez was 3-6.

Game 2 was more of the same. ASU cobbled together 9 innings from Lambson, Newman, and Seth Blair and ASU won 7-6.

9 walks again from our hitters forced no USD pitcher to go for longer than 2.2 innings. Newman and Maggi had good days at the plate with multi hit games.

All in all it was a fairly standard sweep of a team who is not nearly as good. None of ASU's best three pitchers started games, although you will start to see different starters pushed out there as Murph tries to limit his best guy's innings going into the post-season.
