TEMPE, ARIZ. -- Minnesota fans interested in listening to the play-by-play from this afternoon's game at No. 3/3 Arizona State can hear the streamed broadcast via ASU's Blaze Sports Radio.
The first pitch for the game against the nationally-ranked Sun Devils (11-0) is tentatively scheduled for 2:15 p.m. CT, but could change based on the length of the game that precedes it.
Minnesota (3-5) is 2-2 at the Littlewood Classic after a pair of wins versus Northern Iowa on Saturday.
