????????????TUCSON, Ariz. ?C?The Arizona offense erupted for 15 runs on a season-high 16 hits, including eight for extra bases, in a 15-7 win over Sacramento State at Jerry Kindall Field at Frank Sancet Stadium on Saturday. The win ensured the top-ranked Wildcats of a victory in the three-game series and improved them to 4-1 on the year, while the Hornets dropped to 1-4 with the loss.

?

????????????Sac State jumped out to a pair of early leads, scoring one in the first and answering UAˇ?s three-run second with a three-spot of its own in the fourth for a 4-3 edge, but couldnˇ?t match the firepower of the Wildcats offense over the final five and half frames.

?

The Cats finished day with seven of the nine starters in the game collecting at least one hit each and eight different players coming around to score at least once, including five different players with multiple runs.

?

????????????After falling behind through three and half innings, the Wildcats stormed back to take the lead for good with five runs in the fourth, one in the fifth and three each in the sixth and seventh.

?

Freshman Bobby Coyle delivered a two-out, two-run triple in his first collegiate at bat to hand the Wildcats back the lead in the fourth, and C.J Ziegler and Jon Gaston both went deep for the Wildcats in the game. Zieglerˇ?s three-run blast in the seventh was his team-leading third of the season and Gastonˇ?s solo shot in the sixth was his first of the year.

?

Gaston led all players at the plate, finishing 3 for 5 with two RBI and three runs scored, while junior classmate T.J. Steele chipped in with three more hits, including a double and a triple, and drove in a run and scored twice.

?

On the mound UA starter David Coulon (2-0) picked up the win in five innings of work. The senior southpaw surrendered six runs - four earned - on seven hits, but finished with seven strikeouts against just one walk for his team-leading second win of the year.

?

Sac Stateˇ?s Jose Ramirez (0-1) was charged with the loss after allowing five runs on six hits in three innings. He struck out two and walked one on the afternoon.

?

Arizona will look for its first series sweep of the season when the two schools meet up for a final time on Sunday. First pitch for the series finale is set for 11 a.m. due to the 2 p.m. menˇ?s basketball game against UCLA. Right-hander Ryan Perry is the scheduled starter for the Wildcats.
