Bingham’s 3-run triple helps Arizona beat Arizona St. 8-6
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Mac Bingham hit a three-run triple in the bottom of the eighth inning, Trevor Long pitched a scoreless top of the ninth and Arizona survived the heat to beat Arizona State 8-6 Friday night in an elimination game at the Pac-12 Tournament.
No. 5 seed Arizona (37-22) plays Stanford in Saturday’s semifinals. The Wildcats have to beat the top-seeded Cardinal twice to advance to Sunday’s championship game.
With the temperature in Arizona breaking into triple-digits, Bingham came up with two out and the bases loaded and hit a line-drive over the head of center fielder Joe Lampe to give Arizona an 8-6 lead. Chase Davis and Tony Bullard drew back-to-back walks, Garen Caulfield’s sacrifice bunt moved the runners to second and third and Noah Turley was intentionally walked.
Daniel Susac hit a three-run home run, Tanner O’Tremba followed two pitches later with a solo shot and Davis scored on a sacrifice fly by Garen Caulfield to give Arizona a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the third.
