            LOS ANGELES ?- Arizona junior Kevin Guyette limited UCLA to just one hit over nine innings in an 11-0 win over the Bruins at Jackie Robinson Stadium on Saturday. The right-hander struck out 11 UCLA hitters on 100 pitches to lead the Wildcats (20-10, 4-1 Pac-10) to their third shutout victory of the season.


            A second inning single up the middle by UCLA’s Tommy Lansdon was the lone hit for the Bruins in the game, as Guyette retired the final 11 hitters in order and did not allow a base runner past first after the second inning for his first career complete game win.


The second Arizona one-hitter of the season sent the Bruins to a school record 12th-straight loss and dropped them to 7-16 overall and 0-2 in the Pac-10.


            Guyette walked two batters on the night and was victimized by a defensive miscue in the fifth, but he worked out a bases-loaded jam in the second with a pair of strikeouts and turned the error into double play grounder to keep the Bruins in check.


            Offensively, Arizona jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first on a two-out Nick Hundley double to left that scored Jeff Van Houten from second and added three more runs in the second on a two-RBI double by Brad Boyer and a UCLA defensive error to go up 4-0.


            Jason Donald hit a three-run homer as part of a four-run fifth inning to push the advantage to 8-0 and Bryan Kervin added a two-run double in the sixth and Jordan Brown chipped in with a run-scoring ground out in the seventh for the final tally in the game.


            Individually, junior Chris Frey went a career-best 4 for 5 with two runs scored to lead all players at the plate. Donald finished the game 3 for 4 with his second homer of the year, three RBI and two runs scored.


            Arizona, which took its second straight Pac-10 series with Saturday’s victory, will go for the three-game sweep on Sunday at 1 p.m. Freshman David Coulon will take the mound as the starter for the Wildcats.
