SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah baseball team earned a 6-3 victory over No. 12 Arizona State while also winning coach Bill Kinneberg's 600th career victory as a head coach on Saturday at Smith's Ballpark.

Utah had a great start, scoring three runs in the first and eventually stretching it out to 5-0 to hold on for its 12th win of the season and Kinneberg's 600th.

Right fielder Erick Migueles and starting pitcher Joshua Tedeschi had great days as Migueles went 2-4 with two home runs and four RBIs and Tedeschi pitched 7.1 innings, giving up two runs on seven hits.

The Utes couldn't have had a better start as Oliver Dunn and Rykker Tom both singled and Migueles hit his first homer to put the Utes up 3-0 before Arizona State could record an out.

The Utes tacked on two more runs to their lead with an RBI from Isaac Deveaux to score Shea Kramer in the third and a Dunn RBI in the fifth to score Deveaux.

Tedeschi was working early, only giving up two hits through six innings.

The Sun Devils, one of the best hitting teams in the NCAA, got their bats going in the seventh, but Tedeschi limited them to only two runs on four hits.
