High-powered offense propels No. 21 Arizona State past No. 12 Cal

  Amber Freeman went 3-for-4 on the day with 3 RBI and the 50th homer of her career.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State won its first conference series of 2015 against No. 12 Cal two games to one, after an 11-6 victory against the Bears on Sunday.

After going down a run in the second inning, the No. 21 Sun Devils (22-10, 3-2) erupted for 11 runs in their final four innings of offense, overpowering the Bears (23-6, 2-4) to capture the series.

Amber Freeman hit her 50th career home run at ASU, this one a two-run blast in the four-run bottom of the sixth. Sierra Rodriguez also added a home run of her own, the second of the series for her, a solo shot to right field. Rodriguez went 2-for-4 on the day with four RBI.

Every starter in the ASU lineup finished with at least one hit, led by Freeman and Chelsea Rodriguez each going 3-for-4 in the contest.

Breanna Macha picked up where she left off in her last start on Friday against the Bears, earning her team-leading 11th win while giving up five earned runs and scattering nine hits in seven innings of work. Cal had two solo home runs in the final two innings off the freshman Macha, but ASU had already built a considerable lead at that point.
