TUCSON, AZ -

 

Tenth-ranked Arizona walked off with a pair of run-rule victories on day one of the Wildcat Invitational. Lauren Young's fifth-inning solo homer ended Arizona's 8-0 victory over Longwood before Courtney Rodriguez's fifth-inning bases-loaded single defeated Valparaiso 9-1.
 
Arizona has now run-ruled five straight opponents and six of the last seven. In the seven game stretch, Arizona has outscored its opponents 71-4 and its pitchers have allowed a total of 17 hits; the Wildcats' offense had 20 hits in Friday's doubleheader alone. For the season, the Wildcats have outscored opponents 149-11.
 
Twelve of Arizona's 18 games have been cut short due to the eight-run rule. Furthermore, 15 of the Wildcats' 17 wins have been by five or more runs.
 
The Wildcats' 17-1 start is their best since 2010.
