ASU: Barry Bonds, the major league career and single-season home run leader, will return to ASU for a game in which the Sun Devils will wear Bonds’ throwback uniforms from the 1980s. Bonds played at ASU from 1983-85, hitting 45 career homers and playing on two College World Series teams. ASU is 10-12, 1-5 Pac-12 after dropping two of three games at USC last weekend. Freshman 1B Lyle Lin is up to 11 multi-hit games and has reached base in all but one game. The Sun Devils remain at home for a series against UCLA starting Friday. They must win at least 20 of their final 33 games to extend their national record for consecutive 30-win seasons to 55.
