UCLA Baseball scratches back to avoid sweep

WESTWOOD, CA - UCLA scored a pair of runs in the ninth inning and one more in the 10th to secure an 8-7 extra-inning win over Arizona on Sunday afternoon at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
The loss dropped the Cats to 15-4 on the season. With a pair of wins in Saturday's doubleheader, the Cats still managed to win their first series at UCLA (7-11, 1-2) since a three-game sweep in 2005.
Nick Quintana and Cesar Salazar homered for Arizona (15-4, 2-1).

Starting pitcher Rio Gomez struck out six in seven innings of work. He retired nine in a row at one point.

Reliever Cameron Ming came within one strike of securing the sweep before allowing the tying runs in the ninth. He allowed his first earned runs of the season in giving up four in an inning and two-thirds.

Alfonso Rivas, Quintana, Salazar and Cameron Cannon all had two-hit games in the loss and six different players drove a run in for the Cats.
The Cats will host New Mexico State at Hi Corbett Field on Tuesday night at 6:00 p.m.
