Calhoun's homer turns around the ballgame

June, 18, 2009
OMAHA, Neb. -- Arizona State's Kole Calhoun, who admits he has a chip on his shoulder because he was passed over in this year's MLB draft, took advantage of a bases-loaded situation in the fifth inning and deposited a 3-2 pitch from North Carolina reliever Brian Moran over the wall in right center field to tie up this game at 4-4 with one swing.

It was Calhoun's 12th home run of the season and the 46th grand slam in College World Series history -- not to mention Calhoun's second home run off Moran at this CWS. In Sunday's 5-2 ASU win, Calhoun hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning off of Moran to give the Sun Devils a 5-1 lead. So, in two at-bats against Moran in Omaha, Calhoun is 2-for-2 with 2 HRs and 7 RBIs.

The Tar Heels took a 4-0 lead when by scoring one run in the second and three in the fourth.

With four innings to play, it's a whole new ballgame.
