ASU threatens in first, doesn't follow through

June, 18, 2009
OMAHA, Neb. -- Arizona State threatened in the bottom half of the first inning but came up empty.

With one out, Jason Kipnis reached on an infield single and then advanced to second on the first of two wild pitches by North Carolina starter Matt Harvey. A walk to Carlos Ramirez made it first and second with one out, but Kipnis was caught trying to steal third and then cleanup hitter Kole Calhoun went down looking to end the inning.

The walkways between the outfield sections are standing-room-only and are packed several people deep for their entire length. As expected, this should be a great crowd tonight.

Kind of makes you wonder what it's like to be here for an Omaha Royals game.
