Sacramento State eliminates Arizona State

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Nathan Lukes was 3-for-3 and drove in three runs and Sacramento State scored three times in the eighth inning to break a tie and beat Arizona State 5-4 in an elimination game Saturday.

"Win No. 40 in a regional and knocking off a perennial power in Arizona State ... we've believed all year long that we're a good club and we can play against anybody. Now other people are going to believe." head coach Reggie Christiansen said. "We were able to score two runs then gave it back. That was a critical point, but our guys continued to stay upbeat and positive in the dugout and then we score three when the shortstop makes an error."

Sacramento State reliever Alex Palsha withstood a late rally for the Hornets.

Pinch-hitter Ryan Ybarra hit a two-run home run off in the ninth inning to bring the Sun Devils (33-24) within a run, but Palsha (6-1) froze Trever Allen with a 3-2 curveball for the final out of the game, the first NCAA Division I regional victory in program history for the Hornets (40-23).

Jordan Aboites (5-3) took the loss, allowing three runs, one earned, on two hits and two walks while recording just one out in the eighth. David Del Grande hit a two-run single off Aboites to break a 2-2 tie after Rhys Hoskins led off with a walk and Will Soto reached on an error.
