TUCSON, AZ - The Arizona Wildcats erased a deficit for the fourth straight game and topped McNeese State 12-5 Sunday afternoon to complete a four-game sweep of the Cowboys at Hi Corbett Field. The game was called after the top of the eighth because of a Sunday travel curfew.

Sunday, Jared Oliva led the way, going 3 for 5 with two doubles, a three-run home run and five RBI. The junior is hitting .457 on the season with a team-high 10 extra-base hits.

JJ Matijevic, Mitchell Morimoto and Cesar Salazar all had two hits Sunday and are all batting better than .423 this season.
Cameron Ming tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief to earn his second win of the season.
The Cats will now host Korean professional team NC Dinos in an exhibition matchup Tuesday at Hi Corbett. First pitch is at 3 p.m.
