UH, which loaded the bases with no outs and then pushed across a run with two outs to cut the Arizona advantage in half, saw its come-from-behind bid fall 90 feet short when Jonathan Hee hit into a game-ending fielder&rsquo;s choice to short with the bases loaded.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></FONT></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.5in"><o:p><FONT size=2> </FONT></o:p></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.5in"><FONT size=2>Closer Daniel Schlereth, who worked the final three outs on Saturday after tossing seven pitches before the game was halted on Friday, earned his team-leading fifth save of the year despite surrendering his first run of the year as a reliever. <o:p></o:p></FONT></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.5in"><o:p><FONT size=2> </FONT></o:p></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt; TEXT-INDENT: 0.5in"><FONT size=2>Schlereth&rsquo;s two days of work earned <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:State w:st="on">Arizona</st1:State></st1:place> starter Preston Guilmet (4-0) his fourth win of the season. <o:p></o:p></FONT></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><o:p><FONT size=2> </FONT></o:p></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><FONT size=2><SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </SPAN>Prior to the rain falling on Friday, the Wildcats got an outstanding performance out of Guilmet.
