TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Mike Leake struck out 15 in a five-hitter as Arizona State beat Oral Roberts 4-1 in an NCAA regional game Saturday night.
Leake (15-1) was perfect over the first four innings for the Sun Devils (46-12) until walking two in the fifth, but got Colby Price to hit into an inning-ending double play. In the ninth, Juan Martinez doubled and scored on Michael Notaros' bloop single with two outs before Leake fanned Johnny Roberts to end it.
Mark Serrano (9-1) struck out seven in the first four innings for Oral Roberts (32-14), but allowed run-scoring singles to Johnny Ruettiger in the second and Carlos Ramirez in the third. Serrano allowed four runs on eight hits in 8 1-3 innings, and struck out 13, but walked five.
