Arizona Rally Falls Short as UCLA Wins, 7-5


LOS ANGELES — The Arizona Wildcats (12-5, 3-2) dropped game two of their series against the UCLA Bruins (14-3, 4-1) on Saturday afternoon at Jackie Robinson Stadium.

Shortstop Nik McClaughry blasted a three-run home run in the top of the third inning to give Arizona an early lead, but a six-run fifth put UCLA out in front for good.

The Wildcats rallied in the top of the ninth and plated a run on a Cameron LaLiberte RBI single, but fell two runs shy.

Starting pitcher Bradon Zastrow (2-1) worked 4.1 innings and took the loss after allowing four runs on just three hits; he struck out three.

Right-hander Cam Walty tossed the final three innings for the Wildcats and surrendered just one run on one hit while fanning four.
