Garton gets out of the top of the 1st unscathed, did give up a double & struck out one.

The Red Wolves starter is getting off to a slow start...after Church reached on a throwing error, moved up a base after a successful bunt attempt by Albaladejo, Mee then was walked - 1 out.

Re: Series Thread: ASU vs FAU

Scheffler registers the first hit of the evening for the Owls…the RBI single puts the Owls on the board first.

The Owls now have the bases loaded after Cassidy draws the second walk of the inning.

Re: Series Thread: ASU vs FAU

The Owls strand all three base runners in the 1st  :'(

But did score one more run in the 2nd on a Bukovich home run.

FAU 2 ASU 0 - after 2 innings of play.
