AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Zach Zubia hit a two-run home run and No. 2 overall seed Texas loaded the bases in the third inning before scoring on a hit batter, a walk and a wild pitch, to cruise to a 10-3 victory over Arizona State in the winners bracket of the Austin Regional on Saturday.

Zubia accounted for a pair of unearned runs in the fourth with his homer. Trey Faltine had an RBI single and Eric Kennedy singled home a pair in a three-run sixth. Silas Ardoin capped the scoring for Texas with a two-run single in the eighth.
