Rupp's 2 HRs lead Texas to 10-6 CWS win over ASU

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Cameron Rupp's second home run of the game broke a seventh-inning tie, and Texas overcame a six-run deficit to beat Arizona State 10-6 in the College World Series on Tuesday night.

Rupp drove Mitchell Lambson's first pitch of the seventh inning over the right-field wall to give the Longhorns the lead. He also hit a three-run homer to start Texas' comeback in the fourth.

No. 1-seeded Texas (48-14-1) is 2-0 in the CWS and has advanced to the Bracket 2 final on Friday. The Longhorns need one more win to reach next week's best-of-3 championship round. They will play either ASU (50-13) or North Carolina on Friday.

Freshman Taylor Jungmann (10-3) picked up his second win in relief at the CWS, holding ASU to two hits in 5 2-3 shutout innings. Lambson (9-4) took the loss.
