TUCSON, Ariz. - Austin Voth limited Arizona to one run on seven hits over seven and two-third innings as the Washington baseball team edged the Wildcats, 2-1, Saturday night at Hi Corbett Field.
It was a far cry from Friday night's game in Tucson where the Huskies rapped 30 hits in a 23-1 rout of the Wildcats.
Voth, a junior from Kent, Wash., improved to 5-5 with the victory. He gave up three walks and fanned three. Trevor Dunlap retired all four he faced to close out the win and earn his first save.
James Farris dropped to 4-4 in the loss. He gave up two runs, only one of them earned, on nine hits in his seven innings.
The Huskies (16-28 overall and 8-12 in the Pac-12) grabbed the lead with a run in the third. Andrew Ely led off the inning with a single. After advancing to third on a groundout and a passed ball, he scored on a two-out single from Brian Wolfe.
In the fourth, the Wildcats (28-17 overall, 9-11 Pac-12) drew even. With two down, Zach Gibbons singled and scored when Scott Kingery doubled to center, knotting the score at 1-1.
In the eighth, Husky right fielder Michael Camporeale led off with a single to right. Brian Wolfe follow with an infield single and a chopper in front of the plate. After both moved up 90 feet on an errant pickoff throw, reliever Mathew Troupe came on and got a strikeout for the first out, but Husky senior Joe Meggs came through with a fly ball to right field, scoring Camporeale from third to put Washington back in front, 2-1.
Wolfe, Camporeale and Jayce Ray led the UW batters, each collecting a pair of base hits. Gibbons and Riley Moore each had two hits for the Wildcats.
The series wraps up Sunday at noon. A live video stream of will air on the Pac-12 website.
