Last Time Out:

Last weekend saw the Sun Devils hit the road for their Pac-10

season opener as they came out bats and arms blazing in the Bay Area,

accumulating their

first Pac-10 opening series sweep since 2003.

In their

fi rst match-up against the 23rd-ranked Cal Golden

Bears, the Sun Devils bounced back from an 2-0 de

fi cit to rattle off a

4-2 win with two home runs, one from Katie Crabb with a two-run shot

and Caylyn Carlson hitting a solo shot.

Against the

fifth-ranked Cardinal, the Sun Devils had no issues

taking the

first game 6-0, with Katie Crabb again hitting a two run shot

to lead the Devils along with Kristen Miller and Krista Donnenwirth both

going deep.

The last game of the weekend proved to be a gritty one for the

Sun Devils as Stanford hurled their ace, Missy Penna at them with a

Pac-10 leading 21-3 record. Megan Elliott took the circle for the Sun

Devils were she was lights out through over nine innings, pitching phenomenally.

Katie Burkhart entered the game where she three 3.2 innings

and took the win in the 13th inning as Jackie Vasquez launched

her second home run of the season with a 3-run shot to center

fi eld to

push ASU ahead for good.

With the sweep last weekend Clint Myers continues on his tradition

of never having lost a series to Stanford in his career.
