The New Mexico baseball team shook off a Sunday thrashing and bounced back with a Tuesday night upset.

Four Lobos had multi-hit games while four pitchers shut down one of the nation's most potent lineups as UNM defeated Arizona State 7-1.

Victor Sanchez, Taylor Duree, Jonathan Cuellar (1-0) and Jake Cole combined to allow just the one run, six hits and four walks while striking out 10 batters to even the Lobos' record at 2-2.

Sam Haggerty, Alex Real, John Pustay and Jared Holley had two hits apiece to pace the offensive attack.

UNM picked up one run in the third on Chase Harris' RBI groundout and scored again in the fourth on Jered Meek's RBI single to right-center.

ASU (2-2) got a run back on David Graybill's solo home run in the fourth, but that would be it for the Sun Devils.

The Lobos erupted for five runs in the fifth. Haggerty hit a leadoff single and two batters later Real singled down the right field line to put runners at the corners.

Pustay then singled to center to make it 3-1. After freshman Jack Zoellner singled to load the bases, ASU put Mark Lambson in for starter Darin Gillies (0-1). Padilla greeted him with a two-run single to left field.

Lambson struck out Meek, but Holley followed with an RBI single and Padilla later scored on an error.

UNM will next play host to the Lobo Invite, beginning Friday at 4 p.m. against Northern Illinois at Lobo Field.
