Aaron Fitt’s Five
The Sun Devils carried a three-game losing streak into Pac-12 play, but they bounced back strong with a three-game sweep of Oregon to improve to 11-9 overall. ASU has played a strong schedule, and now they have quality series wins against Oklahoma State and the Ducks (who had entered the series 12-4). Leadoff man Gage Canning had a monster week for the Sun Devils, going 10-for-17 with two homers, two triples, eight runs scored and seven RBIs.
