OMAHA—Brian Moran’s struggles at Rosenblatt Stadium continue, and so does Kole Calhoun’s hot streak. Calhoun tied this game up with one swing of the bat, hitting a 3-and-2 pitch from Moran into the bleachers in right-center field for a grand slam. Calhoun is now 5-for-11 with three homers and eight RBIs here in Omaha.
Calhoun also hurt the Tar Heels in the 10th inning Sunday, smacking a three-run homer in the 10th inning. That one also came against Moran, whose career ERA in Omaha has climbed to 13.50 in seven appearances.
"Red head here decided he was going to show up," Sun Devils coach Pat Murphy joked about Calhoun after the game Sunday. "He didn’t show up until the 10th, but the first nine innings he was busy signing autographs out there and building friendships out there in left field for his next job. I’m proud of Kole . . . He’s a great competitor, and I think that was the difference in the game."
Today, he’s the difference between a 4-0 deficit and a tie game.
