University of Kentucky freshman infielder Christian Stokes hit two solo home runs, junior pitcher/infielder Lauren Cumbess and senior outfielder Alice O'Brien each added solo shots but it wasn't enough as No. 5 Arizona State defeated the Wildcats 5-4 to take the first game of the Tempe Super Regional Saturday night at Farrington Stadium.
