ASU Baseball: Sixth-inning surge puts Sun Devils over USC

The bats stayed hot for Arizona State (31-16, 15-10 Pac-12) as a five-run sixth inning propelled them to a 6-2 victory over USC (22-24, 10-15).

ASU claimed a 1-0 lead in the top of the third off an RBI single from Sean McLain, but it was short-lived when the Trojans scored on a sacrifice fly in the third and back-to-back hits in the fifth to take the 2-1 advantage.

The sixth-inning surge started with a rally of singles, including an RBI from Jack Moss. Then with two runners on, freshman catcher Nate Baez crushed a homer to give ASU the lead back.
