(Tempe, AZ) – Who Is Mike Jones?The Arizona State version of Mike Jones is now the answer to a trivia question.A three run home run over the right field wall in the sixth inning complimented a couple of great catches in center field on Saturday night.But the question is, name several Arizona State athletes who have hit both a home run and caught a touchdown pass for the Sun Devils?[Thanks for the question TerryLee]
Aaron Baker looked great for Oklahoma with two home runs on the night.However the entire rest of the Sooners roster were only half as effective as Baker, with just the one other run between them all.
Unfortunately Carl Spackler has no “Cinderella story” left here in Tempe.After an inspirational performance on Friday night the Stony Brook Seawolves were eliminated during the day game.Head coach Matt Senk was quoted stating “Arizona State and Vanderbilt are tremendous teams and it was an honor to compete against them.”Well coach Senk, it was an honor to watch your team play.Your players and fans represented the America East conference well.Not Masters champions this year, but maybe you can pull off the miracle next year.

(Tempe, AZ) – Mike Minor pitched eight solid innings and Vanderbilt pounded out 16 hits in a 9-4 win over Stony Brook in the elimination game of the NCAA Tempe Regional Saturday afternoon at Packard Stadium.
The Commodores (41-21) will face the loser of tonight’s Oklahoma-Arizona State contest tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m. CT/1 p.m. MT. The Seawolves season ended with a 34-26 record.
Minor gave up four runs on seven hits in eight innings with seven strikeouts and one walk to improve to 7-3 on the year.
“The game was predicated on the start of Mike Minor,” said Vanderbilt head coach Tim Corbin. “To go deep into a ball game, especially after we lost the first game and have to play five games to win it. We needed a starting pitcher to go deep and he did. It was a hot day obviously and he threw a lot of strikes. [He had] one tough inning, but it wasn’t all his fault. He overcame it and pitched a very solid eighth. I think it stops and ends with him.”
