Arizona St takes a one game lead. Kentucky bolted 4 solo home runs but ran out of time.

My Priorities are:
3)Cougar Athletics!

Everything else doesn't matter!

Score was actually 5-4.

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Freshman infielder Christian Stokes blasted two solo home runs, while junior pitcher/infielder Lauren Cumbess and senior outfielder Alice O’Brien each added solo shots against Arizona State’s Dallas Escobedo, who entered the game having not allowed an earned run in 31 consecutive innings, but it wasn’t enough as No. 5 ASU scored three runs in the third and two in the fifth to take game one of the Tempe Super Regional, 5-4 on Saturday night at Farrington Stadium.

Day two of the Tempe Super Regional will start Sunday at 5 p.m. ET with game two of the best-of-three set on ESPN. Kentucky will be the home team in the game. An if necessary game three of the series will be played at 8 p.m. ET Sunday on ESPN2. Both games will be available on WatchESPN.

Fans can also hear every game of the Tempe Super Regional on the UK/IMG Sports Radio Network with **** Gabriel calling the action. Fans in Lexington can hear the game on 630AM WLAP while it will also be available online at UKathletics.com.

Kentucky (41-20) had a great night offensively in the game, blasting four solo home runs. The four-homer night marked the most in a single NCAA Tournament game in school history for Kentucky. Stokes was the leader at the dish, going 2-for-3 with her sixth and seventh home runs of the season. The native of Chesterfield, S.C., becomes the second player in school history to hit two home runs in a NCAA Tournament game.

Cumbess and O’Brien also had roundtrippers in the game with Cumbess blasting her team-leading 13th home run of the season – which ranks tied for third most in a single-season in school history – while O’Brien launched her eighth of the season. Freshmen infielder Nikki Sagermann and outfielders Maisie Steed and Sylver Samuel also had singles in the game as UK outhit the Sun Devils 7-5. Defensively, UK was solid, not committing an error in the game.

Freshman pitcher Kelsey Nunley got the start in the circle, throwing all six innings, allowing five runs – all earned – on five hits with two walks and a strikeout. The native of Soddy Daisy, Tenn., now sits 27-10 on the season with a 2.06 ERA.

Arizona State started Escobedo in the circle, who entered the game having not allowed an earned run in 31 consecutive innings. That streak was snapped in the fifth inning when Stokes hit her first of the season. Overall, Escobedo threw six innings, allowing four runs – all earned – on seven hits with two strikeouts. Mackenzie Papescue pitched the seventh inning, giving up a two-out walk before getting Cumbess to groundout to end the threat and earn the save. Escobedo got the win to move to 29-4.

Offensively, ASU was paced by shortstop Cheyenne Coyle, who went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run and sacrifice fly for four RBI. Leadoff hitter Alix Johnson was 3-for-3 with two runs scored and a RBI triple, while Baily Wigness was 1-for-1 with two runs scored.

Arizona State (49-10) started the scoring in the game, getting a three-run home run by Cheyenne Coyle in the third inning. After a one-pitch out to start the frame, Wigness hit an infield single, moving into scoring position on a single to leftfield by Johnson. That set the stage for Coyle, who lined a home run to leftfield that just got over the wall to put the Sun Devils up 3-0. Nunley got two popups to end the frame.

Kentucky got on the board in the fifth inning when Stokes crushed her sixth home run of the season well over the wall in centerfield. After a groundout to start the frame, Stokes put UK on the board with a solo shot to centerfield. Steed then tried to keep the rally alive with a single through the left side of the infield, before Dill reached on an error to put runners on first and second for Joiner, who popped up to end the threat.

The Sun Devils answered back with two runs in the fifth inning. After a leadoff walk to start the inning, Johnson hit a triple to the wall in left-centerfield to score a run and make it 4-1 ASU. Coyle then drove in her fourth RBI of the night with a sacrifice fly to leftfield before Nunley got a flyout and a lineout to end the frame.

UK clawed itself back into the game in the sixth inning, hitting three solo home runs to cut the Arizona State lead to 5-4. Cumbess started the inning with a leadoff homer, before O’Brien hit a laser just fair to rightfield with one out to make it 5-3. Stokes then cut the ASU lead to 5-4 with her second homer of the night to left-centerfield.
