Former Butkus Award winner Chris Claiborne is back in Southern California and attended yesterday’s practice. Claiborne said he has spoken to the coaches about helping out in some capacity and is interested in coaching one day.
The Trojans scored the first run but No. 3-ranked Arizona State had too much quality to be held down. USC catcher Robert Stock makes his first career start as a pitcher tomorrow as the Trojans try to avoid a sweep.
That 13-game homestand intended to rig the season ends Sunday with the Trojans 6-6 on it. USC is 10-12 overall and 1-4 in the Pac-10.
