Pepperdine holds off Arizona State 3-2

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Austin Davidson was 2 for 4 with a two-run double, Corey Miller pitched into the seventh inning, and Pepperdine held on to beat Arizona State 3-2 on Friday in NCAA regional play.

Brett Lilek got only two outs for Arizona State (33-23) before leaving the game because of a sternum injury. He was hurt when he landed on the ball diving to make a catch covering first base on a potential inning-ending double play.

Aaron Brown was safe for the Titans (40-16), and Davidson scored.

Miller (9-4) was the winner, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out four in 7 1-3 innings. Eric Karch got his 14th save.

Davison added a two-out, bases-loaded double in the second that scored two. Hutton Moyer also was 2 for 4 for the Waves.

Lilek took the loss for the Sun Devils. Freshman Seth Martinez allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out seven in 6 1-3 innings of relief. Trever Allen was 2 for 4 with a solo home run in the second for Arizona State.

Pepperdine will play the Cal Poly-Sacramento State winner Saturday, and Arizona State will play the loser in an elimination game.
