With the victory, the Sun Devils (33-22, 19-11 Pac-12) clinched third place in the Pac-12 and expect to receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship when the 64 teams are announced, Monday.

After the Cougars (24-30, 14-16) spotted the Sun Devils a run in the first, they tied the game in the home half of the second. Yale Rosen and Ben Roberts singled to open the inning against Darin Gillies (3-4). Ian Sagdal followed with a bunt single and Rosen scored when the throw to first was dropped for an error.
