Box Score

TEMPE, Ariz. --- Junior Max Willett had three hits for the University of New Mexico baseball team, but those were the only UNM hits as the Lobos lost to No. 1 Arizona State, 18-1, in Tempe tonight.

The Sun Devils (8-0) got on the scoreboard early in the game, taking a 3-0 lead into the fifth inning. New Mexico had the opportunity to make a move in the fifth with the bases loaded and senior Drew McDonald at the plate. ASU made a pitching change and got McDonald to end the inning with a ground out to the shortstop.

ASU had two big run innings in the fifth (five runs) and eighth (seven runs) to put the lead out of reach.

The Lobos (7-2) scored their only run in the top of the eighth when pinch hitter Anthony Martinez drove in Mike Brownstein on a sacrifice fly.

Willett reached base in every plate appearance against ASU - a single in the first, hit by pitch in the third, single in the fifth and a single in the eighth.

Starter Jacob Norton (1-1) took the loss for UNM, while Tommy Rafferty (1-0) picked up the win for ASU in relief.

Earlier today, senior Bobby LaFromboise was named to the 2008 Roger Clemens Award Watch List, awarded to the top pitcher in college baseball. LaFromboise is one of two Mountain West Conference pitchers on the list, along with Stephen Strasburg of San Diego State.

The Lobos will face ASU again on Wednesday, March 5 at 6:30 p.m.
