Arizona State softball rides eight-game win streak into Pac-12 play

The bats have been getting hot for no. 22 Arizona State softball (19-5) at the right time as the Sun Devils enter into conference play this weekend. ASU will host No. 23 Oregon State from Friday through Sunday at Farrington Stadium.

ASU leaves the nonconference schedule riding an eight-game win streak. ASU’s defense thrived last weekend and only allowed three runs through five games. In the midweek matchup against Marist, ASU won its fourth run-rule game in the last six games.

The circle has been the strongest point for ASU. Freshman Mac Morgan threw shutouts over BYU and New Mexico State to earn her team-leading ninth win. Senior Marissa Schuld leads the team with 65 strikeouts and tallied 10 against Marist in Tuesday’s game. Junior Lindsay Lopez holds the best earned run average in an already stingy staff with 0.85.
