"I heard it hit that back fence and then I just saw everybody come onto the field, so that's when I knew."

Caleb Reed deserves a lot of credit for this win as well as he pitched well in relief of starter Nick Routt. He threw 5.1 innings, giving up just one run on four hits.

Texas (47-17) defeated Arizona State (43-16) by a score of 5-1 on Saturday in Austin.

Texas used five different pitchers to hold the Arizona State batters to just eight hits and one run. Texas reliever Corey Knebel threw the final two innings for Texas striking out two, while not allowing a base runner.

Texas broke the 0-0 tie with a single run in the third inning on a sacrifice fly by Mark Payton. Jordan Etier went 3-4 with three RBI's and a run scored from the nine-hole for Texas. His three-run home run in the top of the 9th inning sealed the victory for Texas.

Texas and Arizona State play game three at 7pm in Austin on Sunday night for a spot in Omaha at the College World Series.
