TUCSON, Ariz. – Tyger Talleytoyed with a no-hitter and Tyler Krause flirted with a cycle in a season-ending14-1 victory for the University of Arizona baseball team over visiting AbileneChristian University on Sunday afternoon at Hi Corbett Field.

Talley (W, 2-4) carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before giving up aline drive single to Tyler Eager to open the seventh inning. Still, theright-hander turned in 8.1 innings and racked up a career-best 13 strikeouts,which were the most for a UA hurler since Kurt Heyer registered 14 punch-outsagainst Harvard on March 2, 2012.

Krause paced a 17-hit offensive attack with three extra-base hits, including athree-run home run in the first inning. The junior outfielder finished a singleshort of the cycle while he drove in a career-best six runs.

Arizona (22-33) broke open the game with an eight-run second inning againststarter Brady Rodriguez. The first eight hitters in the second inning all hitsafely, including a run-scoring triple by Joseph Maggi and an RBI double byKrause, who greeted reliever Austin Lambright.

By the time the second inning was over, the host Wildcats enjoyed an 11-0 lead.They already had rapped out 11 hits, including at least one for all ninestarters in the lineup. Eight had scored a run and six had batted in a run.

Rodriguez (L, 2-6) took the loss with 10 runs – seven earned – allowed on ninehits in one-plus innings pitched. Lambright allowed three runs in two inningsof relief, before three additional relievers quieted Arizona's offense withjust one run over the final five innings.

Talley picked up his 13th strikeout in the top of the ninth inning, but with arising pitch count he turned the game over to Tyler Parmenter, who recorded thefinal two outs.

The only damage done to Talley's line came in the seventh. After Eager reachedon a single, Heath Beasley knocked him home with a double to left-center,spoiling the bid for a shutout.

Krause, who finished 3-for-5, followed his first inning homer with a double inthe second and a triple in the third. Needing a single to complete Arizona'sfirst cycle since Bill Rhinehart did so in 2007, Krause grounded out and fouledout in his final two at bats.

Scott Kingery turned in a 3-for-4 day with three runs scored, securing the teambatting crown with .354 average for the season.

Middle infield combo Kevin Newman and Trent Gilbert each added three hits oftheir own. Newman scored three times, while Gilbert drove in a pair to push histally to a team-best 39 for the year.

Abilene Christian (18-36) didnot put a base runner on against Talley until two outs in the fourth inningwhen Eager drew a walk.

The visiting Wildcats complete their first season in Division I aftertransitioning from Division II.
