Over the weekend ASU Club Baseball played two Division I opponents. On Saturday January 30th ASU faced UCLA who has won their respected division three straight years. The Sun Devils held leads in both games, but were unable to hold on as costly errors helped the Bruins complete their comeback victories. However, the Sun Devils had outstanding pitching performances and were able to grab hits and RBI’s in clutch situations offensively.
Sunday the Devils faced University of Arizona in a single 9 inning game matchup. The Devils grabbed the lead early, but again were unable to hold the lead as the school down south ended up victorious. The Devils struggled offensively only collecting three hits and again costly errors struck the defense.
Notes so far on the season:
The Devils have held the lead in five of the six games they have played. All loses have been by 2 runs or less except the first game of the season against CMU.
Sun Devil pitchers have only given up 14 earned runs in six games, but opponents have scored 32 runs to the Sun Devils 29.
