Statman drives UA to a 26th consecutive win

SALT LAKE CITY, UT - Danielle O'Toole allowed one run on five hits and Tamara Statman drove in three runs, helping the second-ranked Wildcats to a 5-1 win over No. 14 Utah in the opener of a three-game series at Dumke Family Stadium in Salt Lake City.

The Wildcats did the majority of their offensive work in a four-run, five-hit fourth inning, using a trio of doubles to throw a four-spot on the scoreboard.

That would be plenty of support for O'Toole (22-1), who allowed just one run on five hits. The senior struck out six and walked one in the complete-game effort.

Arizona (41-1, 13-0) won for a 26th straight game. The Wildcats have both the nation's longest winning streak and its best record.

Statman went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple and three RBI to lead the Wildcat offense, which plated five runs on seven hits.

Arizona will go for its fifth straight series victory when they face the Utes (26-8. 8-3) on Friday at 3 p.m. MST on the Pac-12 Networks.
