The Arizona State baseball team finished off a four-game season-opening sweep Sunday with an 11-0 victory over Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Packard Stadium.

The win puts the no. 6-ranked Sun Devils' record at 4-0 and was the 900th career Division I victory for coach Pat Murphy

Five pitchers combined on a four-hit shutout for ASU. Jason Franzblau started and allowed two hits over three innings. Freshman Mitchell Lambson pitched the middle three innings, allowing two hits and striking out four to earn the win in his collegiate debut. Matt Newman, Kole Calhoun and Jordan Swagerty each pitched one shutout inning to finish off the win.

The Devils' offense was just as overpowering, putting up six runs in the first three innings.

Carlos Ramirez led the way with a two-run homer and an RBI triple, giving him the team lead with four home runs and nine RBIs on the season. Jason Kipnis, Zack MacPhee and Jared McDonald also had two hits each in the victory.

ASU's next game is Tuesday when it hosts no. 10 Missouri at 6:30 p.m.
