ASU baseball stayed perfect on the season Tuesday night, winning their first road game of the season against perennial powerhouse Cal State Fullerton.

In their first real test of the season, Arizona State showed that their perfect season is no fluke. The Devils took down the 2018 Big West champion Cal State Fullerton Titans 6-4 in their first road game of the season.

In a total team effort, pitchers Sam Romero, Brady Corrigan, Chaz Montoya and Blake Burzell held the Titans scoreless over the first seven innings.

Burzell got himself into some trouble in the eighth after he allowed four baserunners that all eventually scored without getting an out in the inning. Alec Marsh had to come in to stop the bleeding, but not before allowing three inherited runners to score.

Marsh faced adversity again in the bottom of the ninth, allowing the tying run to get to the plate, but struck out Zach Lew to secure the victory. Despite his first relief appearance of the season, Marsh is still on track to start during the Devils’ weekend series against Xavier.

In total, Sun Devil pitching struck out 12 Titans and walked four in the bullpen game. Corrigan set a career high with six strikeouts in just 2.2 innings.

On the other side of the ball, Alika Williams knocked his first collegiate home run and took charge from the seven spot. The sophomore drove in three runs in total and reached base three times.

Trevor Hauver did his part from the lead-off spot, collecting two hits and an RBI. Sam Ferri and Lyle Lin both drove in a run despite going a combined 0-for-7. Hunter Bishop continued to impress scouts, showing off his power with a triple in a two-hit performance and scoring a run.
