Sun Devils regain lead, 2-1 in fourth inning
OMAHA, Neb. -- Arizona State is back in the lead, in an "excuse me" sort of way.
With two outs in the top of the fourth, the Sun Devils' ninth-place hitter, second baseman Zack MacPhee, hit a high pop into left field. Texas third baseman Michael Torres and left fielder Preston Clark converged on the ball, but it appeared to change direction a bit at the last second, and it left Torres and Clark trying to change direction before losing their footing. Both fell down without the ball, and MacPhee had himself a double.
Drew Maggi promptly singled to center to score MacPhee for the 2-1 ASU lead.
