Monday: The team opened the fall season with 40 players on the roster battling for 33 spots. Coach Lopez and the staff worked on individual drills and teaching the 27 newcomers to the program the way things are done at Arizona.

Tuesday: Tuesday marked the first of what is going to be 13 intra squad games in the three-week fall season. The 40 players were split into two teams, the red and the white. Unlike last season, when there was not nearly as much depth on the fall roster, the Wildcats went a full nine innings to open the season this year.

In a game dominated by the pitchers, the six hurlers that threw combined for 19 strikeouts, the visiting red team held off a late rally by the white team to win the opening contest, 6-4. Junior JC transfer Richie Gardner picked up the win on the mound with three innings of work. The tall right-hander gave up just one run on three hits and struck out three, including the side in the first inning.

Junior lefty Joe Little stood out on the mound, working three hitless innings for the red team. Little struck out five of the 10 hitters he faced. Freshman John Meloan struck out five over three innings pitched, including the side in the fifth inning, but also walked three in his fall debut.

Offensively, junior transfer Joe Frazier had an impressive first day, going 3 for 4 with a pair of solo home runs for the white team. Junior Brian Anderson, a two-year starter for Arizona, was the only other player to finish with multiple hits in the game. Playing for the victorious red team, Anderson went 2 for 4 with a home run and a pair of RBIs.
