ASU Baseball Outduels Arizona In Tucson, Wins 4-3

The Arizona State Sun Devils baseball team traveled to Tucson on Tuesday to play the Arizona Wildcats in their final non-conference road game of the season. After a tough battle, the Sun Devils reigned victorious, 4-3.

Despite the fact that both teams are in the Pac-10, since it was a rivalry game, the game did not count towards conference standings.

Kyle Ottoson started for the Devils, and pitched an uneven game, going only 4.2 innings and giving up three runs. The bullpen came up big in the clutch, 4.1 scoreless innings to shut down the Wildcat attack.

Catcher Xorge Castillo drove in two runs and both Riccio Torrez and Andy Workman brought runners across the plate. Kurt Heyer pitched six strong innings for Arizona, but could not earn the victory against the 7th-ranked Sun Devils.

With the win, the Sun Devils moved to 29-9 in regular season play, and continue to impress the nation despite the postseason ban that looms over 2011. Tim Esmay will have this team back in Omaha in no time with the way he has performed as ASU's skipper. 

Mitchell Lambson earned the save, and the Sun Devils earned a lot of bragging rights on Tuesday night.
