Kaitlin Cochran hit a three-run home run, Katie Burkhart pitched a four-hitter and Arizona State routed Texas A&M 11-0 Tuesday night to win its first college softball title.

Cochran slammed the first pitch from Megan Gibson over the left field fence in the fifth inning to give the sixth-seeded Sun Devils a 4-0 lead in the fifth inning.

Arizona State then started its celebration early with a seven-run seventh inning highlighted by a two-run single by Caylyn Carlson and a three-run home run by Mindy Cowles.

The margin ended up matching the second-most lopsided game in Women's College World Series history. Only Arizona's 12-0 defeat of Fresno State in the first round of the 1989 World Series was a bigger blowout.
