            LOS ANGELES ?- Arizona recorded a pair of firsts in Friday’s 9-3 loss to UCLA that it would like to take back. The Wildcats (31-10, 9-4 Pac-10) dropped their third straight game for the first time in 2007 and right-hander Preston Guilmet (8-1) was charged with his first loss of the year as the Bruins (23-17, 9-1 Pac-10) took the three-game series opener at Jackie Robinson Stadium.


            Guilmet, who entered the game leading the Pac-10 in ERA and strikeouts, allowed four runs on nine hits over seven innings and finished with nine strikeouts and two walks. The solid outing by the Wildcats’ ace wasn’t enough however for a struggling Arizona offense that was limited to just three runs in a complete game effort by Bruin starter Tyson Brummet.


Brummet (8-4), who has tossed a Pac-10-high six complete games this season, picked up his eighth win of the year after holding the Wildcats to just five hits over nine innings. He struck out six and walked four


            Trailing 1-0 in the second Jermaine Curtis hit a three-run homer off of Guilmet, his first collegiate home run, to hand UCLA a lead it would not relinquish. The Bruins then added a run in the fifth on a RBI single by Will Penniall, and took advantage two defensive errors and a rusty Daniel Schlereth on the mound for five runs on three hits in the eighth to put the game away.


            The Wildcats, who have been held to just three runs in each of their last five games, scored two of their three runs on sacrifice flies and one on a RBI ground out.


             Arizona will attempt to stop its season-high losing streak on Saturday in a 2 p.m. game against the Bruins. Left-hander Brad Mills (8-3) will look to win his team-leading ninth game of the year as the scheduled starter for the Cats.
