Arizona State makes the correct moves to defeat Stanford 6 to 4 in 10 innings

Ike Davis(Stanford, CA) – On a chilly Friday night at Sunken Diamond, Arizona State head coach Pat Murphy worked the Abbot and Costello “Who’s on First” routine for a 6 to 4 victory.  After ten innings of play, the only Sun Devil’s who finished the game in the same spot that they started were middle infielders Raoul Torrez at second base and Marcel Champagnie at short.  Junior Ike Davis was the star of the show, hitting an early home run and picking up the win for ASU at the end.  Davis started the game at first base, climbed the hill and got the final out of the seventh, pitched a 1-2-3 eighth, went back to first base for the first two outs of the ninth, climbed back up the hill and retired the final batter of the ninth, and pitched another 1-2-3 tenth as well.  At the end of the night Ike had gone 2 for 3 at plate with the home run, scored three times and walked three times while from the mound he pitched 2.2 innings, struck out four and did not allow a batter to reach base.
