Riding a four-game winning streak, No. 11 Arizona Baseball (21-7, 9-3) returns to action to take on ASU (13-16, 5-4) in this mid-week tilt. 

Fresh off a series sweep of Washington, Arizona Baseball returns to action as they meet Arizona State for the first time this season for a mid-week tilt. The rivals will square off in this non-conference contest in Phoenix.

The Wildcats enter Tuesday evening’s matchup riding a current, four-game winning streak, and increasing their lead atop the Pac-12 Conference standings.

Coming in, the Wildcats face a talented, but inconsistent Sun Devils squad that has had a rather tough schedule thus far, but either way, Arizona should be the favorites here.

Overall, Arizona is one of the better offensive teams in the country, hitting an impressive .298 from the dish collectively while belting 28 home runs and 191 RBIs with 58 doubles and 19 triples.

The real question will be how the Wildcats’ pitching responds here. Where Arizona has shown to struggle the most is in the deeper parts of their rotation, and being that this is a mid-week game, we will see how things go for the Wildcats.

With that said, here’s a look at Arizona’s upcoming opponent.
