????????????TUCSON, Ariz. ?C?Arizona starter Eric Berger allowed just two runs on four hits ?and the UA offense rapped out 12 hits?as the Wildcats (13-9, 2-4 Pac-10) fended off their longest losing streak in over a decade with an 8-4 victory over UCLA at Kindall Field on Sunday.

?

The Wildcat win snapped a six-game skid and helped Arizona avoid its first conference series sweep since 2004. The Bruins, who clinched the series win with victories on Friday and Saturday, dropped to 12-10 overall with Sundayˇ?s loss and to 2-1 in the conference.

?

Tied 2-2 after three innings, UA started to pull away with a single run in the fourth and two in the fifth before padding its lead with two more runs in the seventh and one in the eighth.

?

Brad Glenn delivered a run-scoring base hit in the fifth and a two-run homer in the seventh to finish the game 2 for 3 with three RBI and a run scored. The home run was his third of the year.

?

Senior teammate C.J. Zielger fought off a flu virus that caused him to miss Saturdayˇ?s contest to go 3 for 4 with three runs scored on Sunday. Junior T.J. Steele chipped in with three hits, including a double, and an RBI, while freshman Bryce Ortega extended his hitting streak to a season-high 11 straight games with a double and two runs scored.

?

Berger (2-1), who picked up his second win of the season on Sunday, struck out three and walked two in his second start in the weekend rotation. He allowed just the two runs on four hits over five solid innings before giving way to the UA bullpen.

?

Relief ace Daniel Schlereth replaced Berger in the sixth and struck out five over three innings of work before right-hander Ryan Perry finished things up with an inning of work in the ninth.

?

UCLA starter Gavin Brooks (1-2) was saddled with the loss after allowing seven runs ?C four earned ?C on 10 hits in 6 1/3 innings pitched. The Bruin southpaw struck out four and walked two.

?

Arizona will take Monday off before getting its first practice sessions in since March 13 on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Cats will head to Seattle on Thursday for a three-game conference series against Washington. Fridayˇ?s series opener will be played at Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners.

Note

Arizonaˇ?s now defunct losing streak equaled a six-game slide in 2006. The Wildcatsˇ? most recent losing streak longer than six came in 1998 when UA lost 11 straight contests.
