MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Arkansas State starter Stephen Tharp held Memphis to just five hits in seven innings to pace the Indians to a 10-1 win over the Tigers Tuesday night in non-conference action at Nat Buring Stadium. Memphis ties a program high with its 37th loss of the season.

The Indians opened the scoring in the first when leadoff hitter Michael Williams Jr. led off the game with a double to leftfield. He advanced to third on a fly ball and scored on a wild pitch.

The Tigers answered back with a run of in the home half of the inning on consecutive doubles by K.K. Chalmers and Chad House.

It was all ASU from then on as Chris Rich and Geoff Desmond roped back-to-back homers in the third for a 4-1 lead.

RBI's by Bret Kinning and Rich made it 6-1 in the fourth before the Indians put the contest out of reach with four unearned runs in the seventh for the final 10-1 score.

Blake Richardson was the loser despite fanning a career-high seven ASU batters. The junior allowed six runs on seven hits in four innings of work.

Memphis will now prepare for a matchup with UT-Martin on Wednesday. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. at Nat Buring Stadium.
