Tempe, Ariz. - Long Beach State's offensive struggles continued in a double-header with No. 20 Arizona State on Saturday, as the Dirtbags were shut out in both halves of the doubleheader, falling 4-0 and 6-0 on the road. Freshman Jonathan Serven had two hits on the day for Long Beach State.
In the second game, Arizona State (9-2-1) took a lead in the third inning bringing around David Graybill after a leadoff double along with a second run on a double play. A solo home run by Trever Allen led to another run in the bottom of the fourth inning, and Long Beach State (6-9) never put together a significant rally in the later innings.
ASU added three more runs in the bottom of the seventh inning in support of Ryan Kellogg, who allowed just two hits over seven innings, striking out five while allowing no runs.
The first game was a quintessential pitchers' duel, with Trevor Williams getting the better of Shane Carle in a fast-paced game dominated by defense. Carle surrendered one unearned run in the first inning, and then reached the sixth inning before allowing another run, a home run by James McDonald. Two triples led to two more runs in the seventh inning, as Carle finished with 6.2 innings pitched, allowing six hits and striking out three with one walk.
For the Sun Devils in the opener, Williams was in command throughout. The junior ace finished off a complete game shutout, allowing three hits while striking out five. Michael Hill and Richard Prigatano each had doubles for the Dirtbags. For Long Beach State, it was the first time the baseball team had been shut out in back-to-back games since the 1988 season.
The teams will finish the series tomorrow, with first pitch scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Right-handed pitcher Jon Maciel will take the mound for Long Beach State, facing southpaw Adam McCreery for the Sun Devils.
