Tempe, AZ – Much like Top 40 radio, the hits just keep on coming in Tempe as Sunday’s early elimination game once again saw Oral Roberts and Kent State combine to mash out 32 hits and 25 runs.Yet Oral Roberts would make the ball fly deeper as five different Golden Eagles hit home runs in the 15 to 10 victory.The loss eliminated Kent State from Regional play and gave Oral Roberts another chance against Arizona State later in the day.
Hits were harder to come by in the later rematch game between Arizona State and Oral Roberts.But the pitching wasn’t quite as impressive as Saturday nights winners bracket game when both schools threw their ace.But the end result was the same, as the Sun Devils 8 to 3 victory would hand ORU its second loss of the Regional and end their season.The win will allow ASU to host it’s third straight Super Regional next weekend against the eventually winner of the Clemson Regional.

The Brazos Valley Bombers fell to the McKinney Marshals 5-1 today in a game full of frustrations. The Bombers struggled to get on base all afternoon against the Marshals’ trio of pitchers, Joey Centanni, Hunter Hill and Adam Scott and only managed three hits.
The game remained scoreless going into the third inning, but the Bombers were finally able to get on the board. Brian Nelson got things started by leading things off with a walk. With Chad Colbert at the plate, Nelson stole second and advanced to third as shortstop J.B. Brown mishandled the throw. Zach Grichor came to the plate next and grounded out to the second baseman, scoring Nelson to put the Bombers in the lead.
The East Texas Pump Jacks are so accustomed to late-inning comebacks that sometimes it might appear the Jacks are just toying with the opposition, giving early leads only to steal them away.
It’s a dangerous game to play, and sometimes it doesn’t always go according to plan. Such was the case Saturday night, when the Pump Jacks fell to the Coppell Copperheads, 5-2, although the home team had the tying run on base in the bottom of the ninth inning.
The game marked the home team’s return to Driller Park after a long road trip, a six-game, seven-day affair that saw them visit every other team in the league. The Jacks went 4-2 on the trip and hoped to build on that momentum coming home.
