Road Tested Tigers Head To Tempe For The Diamond Devil Invitational

Complete Release

For the fourth time in five weeks, the Pacific softball team will hit the road for tournament play as the Tigers head to Tempe, Ariz. for Arizona State's Diamond Devil Invitational from March 9-11.  Pacific will play five games at the tournament as the Tigers face off against Creighton and East Carolina on Friday, Valparaiso and No. 5 Arizona State on Saturday and New Mexico State on Sunday.  The Tigers enter the weekend at 10-8 overall on the year after defeating San Jose State, 6-0, on Tuesday in non-conference action.

While in Tempe, the Tigers will take on yet another tough schedule as Pacific faces just one team sitting under-.500 on the year (East Carolina, 8-10) while playing its eighth game against a top-25 opponent as they face the host and No. 5 ranked Sun Devils in the night cap on Saturday.  The Sun Devils will be the fourth game for the Tigers facing a top-10 opponent after taking on No. 8 Stanford and No. 3 Washington (twice).

Pacific's game against Arizona State can be viewed online courtesy of Fox Sports as the local Phoenix affiliate will broadcast the game on the web, free of charge.  To view the game go to Webcast By FoxSportsArizona.com.
