Arizona blasts Eastern, 11-6
Five-run outburst in
eighth sinks Hurons
From Wire Service Reports
OMAHA - Arizona's S t e v e
Powers let fly a home-run in
the eighth inning to start a five-
run explosion by Arizona and
defeat the Eastern Michigan
Hurons 11-6 in the fourth round
of College World Series here
In the course of the scoring
binge, ten men went to the
plate against the Hurons as
Arizona broke a 6-6 tie. Until
that point, the contest was a
furio-s see-saw battle of hitting,
with batters from both squads
slugging just about everything
Neither squad looked as im-
pressive as in previous match-
es in the tournament. EMU
had upset top-ranked Arizona
State Tuesday night, and was
the only undefeated team in
the Series until last night.
Arizona made it into last night
with only one loss.
The finals shape up to be a
tough battle between either
Arizona or Arizona State, and
Eastern. All three now have one
loss apiece, with EMU being
the last one to lose. This gives
the Hurons the bye into the
final game. The cross-state ri-
vals will battle it out tomorrow
night to determine who goes to
the championship match.

State collected 15 hits to stay
alive in the College World
Series with a 7-0 victory over

the ninth inning. He struck

With one out in the first in-
ning, Arizona State put together
three consecutive singles anda
sacrifice fly to take a 2-0 lead.
The Sun Devils added two
runs in the third with two sin-
