OMAHA, Neb. - Kole Calhoun hit the game-tying grand slam in the fifth inning and the go-ahead double in the seventh, and Arizona State erased a four-run deficit in a 12-5 victory over North Carolina at the College World Series last night.
Calhoun has homered in each of the Sun Devils' CWS games and has driven in 10 runs.
ASU (51-13), the No. 5 national seed, plays No. 1 Texas (48-14-1) tonight. The Sun Devils have to win that game and another tomorrow against the Longhorns to advance to next week's best-of-three finals.
The 12 runs Carolina (48-18) surrendered were a season high.
ASU starter Josh Spence (10-1) allowed seven hits and four runs, three earned, in seven innings. Colin Bates (4-4) took the loss in relief of Matt Harvey, who threw a CWS-record four wild pitches.
