After dispatching the Orange in a tightly contested 3-1 battle on Saturday, the defending national champions will once again face Syracuse on Sunday with a chance to close out this double-elimination regional of the 2012 NCAA Softball Tournament.

The No. 25 Orange look for revenge, but stand just one loss away from elimination, while the Sun Devils are just another win away from advancing to face the winner of the regional being hosted by No. 14 seed Louisiana-Lafayette.

With ASU head coach Clint Myers a sterling 22-1 during postseason play at home, the odds are definitely in the Sun Devils' favor. Should Syracuse pull the upset at 3:00pm, the deciding game of the regional will begin at 6:00pm.
