BASEBALL: Arizona State clips No. 2 Arkansas, 3-2


SURPRISE, Ariz. — The Sun Devils stretched the lead to 2-0 with a run in the home half of the third. Jake Peevyhouse drew a leadoff walk and advanced to second after a ground out by Kasey Coffman. Drew Stankiewicz reached first and Peevyhouse advanced to third on a fielding error by Brett McAfee. Rossiter then blooped a single down the left field line to score Peevyhouse for Arizona State’s second run.

The Razorbacks broke through with a run in the top of the fifth. With one out, Matt Vinson singled to right and then advanced to third on a base hit to center field by Serrano. Spoon then went to the opposite field, singling to right to score Vinson and cut the lead Sun Devil lead to 2-1. Brian Anderson was then hit by a pitch to load the bases with one out. Arkansas was again unable to capitalize as Ficociello popped out to third and Jake Wise grounded out to short to end the threat.

Arizona State scored a key insurance run in the bottom of the eighth. With one out, Rossiter reached on an infield single to second and then McDonald doubled down the left field line to score Rossiter all the way from first to extend the lead to 3-1.

Arkansas was able to put together a rally in the top of the ninth, but fell a run short. Eric Fisher hit a leadoff single and pinch hitter Willie Schwanke drew a walk to put runners on first and second. Vinson then laid down a sacrifice bunt to advance both runners into scoring position. Serrano drove home Fisher and advanced Schwanke to third with an RBI groundout to second to cut the lead to 3-2. Spoon then hit a hard liner to center, but the ASU center fielder was right there to make the catch and end the game.
