May 20: where does coach Murphy's team stand?

The pre-season high ranking of this years baseball team created a lot of room for doubters to notice some early hick ups in PAC 10 play early this year. But, it looks as though our Devils may come through with at least a share of the PAC10 title depending on what happens this weekend.

"These kids have done a really nice job,"
 ASU coach Pat Murphy said. 
"They deserve the credit. We've had a ton of unsung heroes."

"When Arizona State was 7-5 after the first half of the Pac-10 baseball season, repeating as conference champion was anything but a given." [AZcentral] But a recent sweep of the Huskies after two great trips to CAL and UCLA brings our conference record to 15-6.
Kiel Rolling was named PAC10 player of the week today as well. This is his second pac10 POW award this year, and 5th overall for ASU. [pac10.org
going 9-13 with a .692 BA 
He knocked in eight runs, slugged 1.385 and scored five runs helping Arizona State beat LMU on Monday and sweep Washington. He also played solid defense at first base, a spot he was playing due to the injury to Ike Davis.

Many Devils are still in the running for national and conference awards.
