ASU baseball didn't have much time to prepare for Tuesday's midweek game against New Mexico State, but they didn't seem to the care.
Freshman starter Seth Martinez threw a career-long seven innings and the Sun Devils (24-17) added runs in the first and seventh innings to shutout the Aggies 2-0 48 hours after finishing their series with UA.
Martinez (3-0) pitched his best game at ASU, giving up just two hits and five walks while not allowing an Aggie to reach third base all night, giving the Sun Devils their second shutout in the past three games.
Martinez said his approach was to take the game a pitch at a time, which helped the Sun Devils secure their lowest opposing hit total (two) of the season.
"I just wanted to make sure I pounded the zone and I knew I had great defense behind me so that helped as well," Martinez said.
