Box score TEMPE, Ariz. -- The eighth-ranked Arizona State baseball team hit three consecutive home runs on five pitches in the bottom of the second to highlight an eight-run inning en route to an 11-8 win over Stanford on Sunday at Packard Stadium. The Sun Devils (30-14-1, 12-9) hit three home runs in one inning for the first time since April 13, 2008, as they picked up their 30th win of the season. ASU has now notched 51 consecutive 30-win seasons, the most in the NCAA, and has won at least 30 games in 52 of the program's 54 years of competition. Catcher Max Rossiter, designated hitter RJ Ybarra and right fielder Trever Allen each homered in the second inning to give the Devils a six-run lead. Rossiter tied a season high with three RBI on a pair of hits, Allen went 2 for 4 with two RBI and two runs scored, and center fielder Kasey Coffman added two hits and drove in two runs. Allen led off the second inning with a single, and first baseman Dalton DiNatale followed with a double before left fielder Jake Peevyhouse drove in the first run of the game for the Devils with an RBI single to right field. A sacrifice fly by Coffman in the next at-bat tied the score at 2-2, and consecutive singles, including an RBI knock by second baseman James McDonald, gave ASU the 3-2 lead and chased Stanford starting left-hander John Hochstatter. The Sun Devils then hit three consecutive home runs on five pitches off Cardinal reliever Dean McArdie, including a three-run homer by Rossiter, his first of the season, to jump out to an 8-2 advantage. Ybarra drove a solo home run to left-center field on the next pitch, and Allen hit one to the same place three pitches later for his ninth of the season. Starting right-hander Zak Miller (4-0) went five innings and allowed three runs on seven hits and a trio of walks to collect his fourth win of the season. Right-hander Darin Gillies pitched a perfect ninth inning, including a strikeout looking to end the game, to pick up his first career save. Stanford (26-16, 11-10) took a 2-0 lead in the second inning on a wild pitch and an RBI groundout, but ASU quickly erased the deficit with its eight-run outburst in the bottom of the frame. ASU added a run in the third and fourth innings on a sacrifice fly by third baseman Michael Benjamin and an RBI single by Coffman, respectively, to extend its lead to 10-2. Stanford put one run on the board in the fifth and sixth innings on a pair of two-out RBI singles, then got a three-run homer in the seventh to cut its deficit to 10-7. Sun Devils ight-hander Alex Blackford took the mound in the top of the seventh after the Cardinal's three-run home run and walked a pair with one out before striking out consecutive batters to keep ASU's lead intact. The Devils added to their lead in the bottom of the seventh, making it 11-7 with an RBI fielder's choice by Allen after loading the bases on a single, a walk and a hit batter. Stanford scored one run in the top of the ninth off left-hander Matt Dunbar and had runners at the corners with no outs before Gillies induced a double-play groundout and struck out the final batter of the game. Stanford starting left-hander John Hochstatter (3-2) allowed five runs on six hits in 1 23 innings in the loss.
