With Kaitlin Cochran, Kristen Miller and Sarah Rice all hitting home runs to lead the offense, the No. 2 Arizona State softball team wrapped up its second home tournament undefeated Sunday as the Sun Devils (16-1) topped Miami 7-3 to go 5-0 on the weekend and claim the Littlewood Classic title on Sunday at Farrington Stadium.

The Sun Devils will host an exhibition doubleheader against Team Canada on Tuesday with the first game scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. at Farrington.


• Arizona rallied from a 4-0 deficit and then withstood a furious ninth-inning Georgia rally to take home a 9-8 victory on Sunday at Athens, Ga. The Wildcats improved to 2-1, while the Bulldogs slipped to 1-2.

• Grand Canyon swept a four-game series from Colorado School of Mines Sunday, winning both games of a doubleheader, 10-6 and 9-6.

Austin Stockfisch (Scottsdale Desert Mountain) was 3-for-3 with an RBI, and Cody Fortney (Scottsdale Coronado) and Trevor Vega (Mesa Skyline) each homered for the Antelopes (5-10) in the opener.

Vega and Nick Lowery (Scottsdale Horizon) went 3-for-4, and Brian Evans 3-for-5 with a double and three RBIs in the nightcap.


• The No. 18 Arizona State women rallied to defeat No. 7 UCLA 4-3 at the Whiteman Tennis Center in Tempe. With the win, the Sun Devils improved to 7-1 and the Bruins dropped to 8-2.


• No. 8 Arizona State (10-7) dropped a 7-5 decision to No. 6 San Diego State at the UC Irvine Invitational in Irvine, Calif., placing the Sun Devils 10th overall in the 16-team tournament.

Katy Lawlor led the team in scoring, netting two goals.

Caylinn Wallace made seven saves in the cage for ASU.
