The Junior right-hander limited the damage in the 3rd to just 1 run, then completed the game giving up just 1 run on 5 hits and 0 walks. Vander Kooi is pictured here from his Sophomore season.

Ryan Burr, ASU Baseball's all-time saves leader, underwent Tommy John surgery last week and is unlikely to return to the White Sox before the middle of the 2020 season. Burr was lights-out at home during the 2019 season, posting a 2.57 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 7 innings out of the bullpen at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Drew Swift Takes the Field

Photo by Barry S. Stahl dated 2019-05-25

One of the most underrated Sun Devils of the 2019 season was second-baseman Drew Swift. From the 9-hole in the batting order, Swift was often found kicking-off late inning rallys. In the Devils final game of 2019, during the Baton Rouge Regional, Swift went 1-2 with 3 walks and several stellar defensive plays.

Celebrating Ryan Hingst's No-Hitter

Hingst No-Hitter

Photo by Barry S. Stahl dated 2016-03-25

Just a few days after the 3rd anniversary of the 9th no-hitter in Sun Devil Baseball history, Ryan Hingst thrilled the crowd at Phoenix Municipal Stadium with the 10th. It was an absolutely brilliant outing! Hingst allowed only 4 baserunners all night, retired the side in order in 6 of the 9 innings, and faced the minimum in another thanks to a double play.

The closest Utah got to a threat was in the 6th inning when a walk, sac bunt, and another walk put runners on 1st & 2nd with 1 out. Hingst rose to the occasion with a strikeout and fly out to end the inning. This was the only time in the game that Utah had 2 baserunners in an inning, and the only time they had a runner reach 2nd base.

The 5-0 final came on this night, 3 years ago.

With the Sun Devils blowing teams out by double-digits on a regular basis, Save chances may be few and far between. It looks like when the do come, at least for now, they will go to the freshman left-hander.

In the first photo of our starting pitcher series, we look at our Sunday starter, RJ Dabovich. In his 2 starts thus far in the 2019 season, RJ Dabovich has earned his 2-0 record. His start today against UC Davis was his best as a Sun Devil, going 7 innings and giving up only 1 run on 4 hits. The Devils beat-up on the Aggies 17-2 to sweep the 3-game series.

I love this photo, taken early in the 2018 season. The 2018 Devils may not have been as talented as some of the teams we've been spoiled with over the years, but they made up for any deficiencies with their heart and hustle. They were flat-out fun to watch!
