Ryan Kelly (3-3) got the win in relief for ASU. Reid Casey (4-5) went the distance for the Bucs in the loss.

In the second game, Matt Baber (7-6) threw a complete-game seven hitter for ETSU. He walked just one and struck out seven in the game, facing just four batters over the minimum. Tyson Blocker (3-5) took the loss for ASU.
