????????????STILLWATER , Okla. ?C?The sixth-ranked Arizona baseball team lost its fourth straight game, dropping a 3-2 decision to Oklahoma State at Reynolds Stadium on Wednesday. The loss, UAˇ?s sixth in its last seven games, dropped the Cats to13-7 overall for the year while OSU improved to 17-6, including a two-game series sweep over UA.

?

????????????Arizona starter Ryan Perry turned in one of his best performances at UA, recording the first four outs of the game on strikes and finishing the contest with a career-high 10 Ks, but the right-hander ran into his only trouble in the third and it proved to be too much for the Wildcats to overcome.

?

????????????OSUˇ?s Dylan Brown led off the frame with a double over the head of left fielder Brad Glenn and was pushed to third on a one-out infield single by Jordy Mercer to bring up Matt Hague. The former Washington Husky delivered with a three-run homer to left to hand OSU a 3-1 edge.

?

????????????The Wildcats answered with a run in the top of fifth to cut the lead to one on a leadoff triple by Jon Gaston and run-scoring wild pitch by OSU starter Matt Willis, but couldnˇ?t add any more off of reliever Josh Neal.

?

????????????With runners on first and second and one down, the Cowboy southpaw got Bobby Coyle to fly out to left and ended the inning on a comebacker off of the bat of Colt Sedbrook to retain the OSU lead. The two runners left on in the inning added to UAˇ?s nine total for the game, including five in scoring position.

?

????????????Neal (2-0) went on to work four more scoreless innings to pick up his second win of the season. The left-hander struck out four and walked none. Meanwhile Perry (1-2) was saddled with the loss after allowing Hagueˇ?s fourth homer of the year.

?

????????????Arizona opened the game with a run in the first on back-to-back singles by Abel and Gaston and then a one-out RBI base knock by Baird, and had opportunities to open a wider margin, but hit into the pair double plays with runners on first and second in both the first and third innings.

?

????????????The Wildcats will open the home portion of their Pac-10 schedule this weekend when they host UCLA in a three-game set at Kindall Field in Tucson. First pitch for the series opener on Friday is set for 7 p.m. with ace Preston Guilmet the scheduled starter.
