ASU's record scoring streak ends

Posted: Tuesday, February 17, 2004

SURPRISE, Ariz. - Arizona State's NCAA-record baseball scoring streak ended at 506 games with a 6-0 loss to Oklahoma on Sunday.

The Sun Devils' run dated to an April 7, 1995, shutout at Southern California. Arizona State was 338-167-1 during the streak, which smashed the previous NCAA mark of 349 straight games with at least one run set by Coastal Carolina from 1983-89.

David Purcey allowed only one hit in seven innings, and combined with Jarod McAuliff on a four-hitter in the final of the Spring Training Classic at Surprise Stadium.

The Sun Devils (5-1) had their best scoring chances in the eighth and ninth innings. Arizona State had runners on first and second with two outs in the eighth, but Dustin Pedroia grounded back to the pitcher to end the threat. In the ninth, Colin Curtis grounded out with the bases loaded to end the game.

Eric Thornton went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs, and Jeff Scuderi was 3-for-5 with two RBIs for the Sooners (2-1).

Juneau's Garrett Schoenberger, a junior catcher, didn't see action in the game. Schoenberger has seen action in two games this season for the Sun Devils.
