Arizona came up with a couple of sixth-inning runs to break a 4-4 tie, and reliever Alicia Hollowell closed out game retiring 10 consecutive UNLV batters to help the Cats beat the Rebels, 6-4, in the second game of a doubleheader Sunday afternoon.

Arizona staked itself to a quick 4-0 lead. Caitlin Lowe led off the UA first with a single and stole two bases, then scored on Wendy Allen's ground ball that UNLV mishandled. A walk to Mackenzie Vandergeest and a single by Kristie Fox loaded the bases. Jackie Coburn hit a sac fly for another run, and Shelly Shultz hit a two-run single to bring in two more.

 
 

The Rebels cut it to 4-3 with a rally in the third. Amber Campbell singled and moved up when Bridget Byrne reached on an error by Samantha Quintero at second base. Lisa Sampson's sacrifice bunt scored Campbell, and Sampson reached second when Jackie Coburn threw home and no one covered the bag. Byrne scored on a base hit by Morgan Bostwick and Wendy Godwin singled in another run.

UNLV chased Arizona starter Leslie Wolfe with another run. Byrne singled and stole second, and scored on a base hit by Sampson.
