SEATTLE, WA -

Brian Wolfe homered and Erik Forgione drove in three runs topropel the streaking University of Washington baseball team to an 8-0 victorySunday afternoon at Husky Ballpark to secure a series sweep over Arizona.

The Huskies cruised to the sweep behind strong pitching and timely hitting froman offense that rapped out 10 hits.  Washington finished 6-for-12 battingwith runners in scoring position

Starter Jeff Brigham (W, 4-0) remained undefeated on the season as he allowedjust three hits over six-plus shutout innings. He struck out four and walkedone.

Washington (16-5-1, 5-1) erupted for five runs in the home half of the fifthinning to break open a 3-0 game. After Arizona starter Austin Schnabel gave upback-to-back hits, reliever Xavier Borde issued a walk before Branden Berrydelivered a two-run double to the wall in left-center. Wolfe followed with athree-run shot over the right field wall to put an exclamation on the scoring.

The Huskies built a three-run cushion with a run in thethird and two in the fourth. Forgione's base hit bunt with runners at thecorners drove in the game's first run, and he knocked in two more with atwo-out double in the fourth inning.

Arizona (11-15, 1-5 Pac-12) put its leadoff runner on base four times, but hadtrouble moving runners and could not get a key hit when they did. The Wildcatswere 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position and 0-for-15 with runners onbase.

Schnabel (L, 0-3) suffered the loss in four-plus innings on the mound. Thefreshman right-hander gave up five runs on seven hits and a pair of walks.

The Wildcats received strong relief pitching from right-handers Tyler Parmenterand Bobby Dalbec, who combined for four shutout innings. Parmenter racked up acareer-high seven strikeouts in three innings of work.

However, it was the Huskies' bullpen that dominated all weekend. On Sunday,Will Ballowe and Alex Nesbitt combined for three shutout innings in relief ofBrigham. For the series, Washington's bullpen allowed only one run over 9.1total innings.
