Tucson, AZ -

The University of Arizona baseball team swept a Sunday doubleheader and the three-game series against Alcorn State with 20-1 and 11-1 victories Sunday at Hi Corbett Field.

Arizona improved to 6-2 on the season, while Alcorn State dropped to 0-8.

The Wildcats outscored the Braves 31-2 in the two games Sunday paced by an offensive attack that hit .500 (.39-for-78). Five different players tallied five hits on the day, including Kevin Newman who was 5-for-10 with a team-high six runs scored and three runs batted in. 

Scott Kingery led an aggressive running game that stole 14 bases in 19 attempts. Kingery had four in the first game, which tied a school single-game record set a dozen previous times.

Right-hander Cody Hamlin (2-0) earned the victory Sunday afternoon, going the distance for a complete-game victory. He struck out five and allowed just one run on five hits.

Lefty Tyler Crawford (1-1) was steady in the second game, pitching 6.1 innings with a run allowed on five hits. The effort was on the heels of a Wednesday midweek start when he pitched 5.2 innings, bringing his weekly total to 12.0 innings with only three runs allowed on nine hits to go with 10 strikeouts and no walks.
 
Arizona's pitching staff was in command all weekend, holding the Braves to a lowly .164 average. The Wildcats walked just one batter in the series and have issued just one base on balls in the last four games – a span of 37.0 innings.

The Wildcats will be back in action to host Seton Hall in a three-game series next weekend (Feb. 28-March 2). The series begins Friday night at 6 p.m. at Hi Corbett Field.
