#2 ASU baseball sweeps Winthrop, now 38-11

The Winthrop Eagles, straight out of South Carolina, came rolling into Tempe this week with 30 wins and a respectable season and left between their tailfeathers between their legs.

Game one set the tone with a 14-3 win. Kipnis was 4-5 with 3 RBI, his 13th HR, a walk, and his 19th SB. Mike Leake went 7 shut out innings for 8 strike outs and no walks and picked up the win to move to 12-1 on the season.

A dominating effort from all fronts and really showed us at our best.

Game 2 was a display of what could go wrong in the post season. Jordan Swaggerty and Seth Blair got crushed for 9 ER. Our offense had 10 runs, but it nearly all came from our 2-4 spots who went 7-12 with 8 RBI and 3 home runs (Kipnis hit his 14th, Ramirez hit his 14th, Calhoun hit his 7th). The rest of the guys went 6-23 and 1 RBI.

In the end we got the win, but pitching is something we need to keep an eye on.

Game three showcased a player who needs to step up with Spence injured and he did just that. Jason Franzblou threw a CG shutout, strike out 5 walked 1. Our offense was all Ramirez and Calhoun as they both hit HRs. (15 and 8 respectively.) 5-0 win.

Series sweep. Oregon next. Team really needed this. Box scores after the jump.
