Arizona baseball scores 4 in 10th to escape last-place Washington, avoid horrible loss

Teams at opposite ends of the Pac-12 standings met at Hi Corbett Field on Friday night. So, naturally, what ensued was an extra-inning nailbiter that took more than five hours to play.

Arizona scored four runs in the bottom of the 10th inning, all with two out, rallying to beat last-place Washington 17-16 in a game it could not afford to lose. The Wildcats (33-13, 17-8) were actually down to their last strike, as sophomore Tyler Casagrande—a 9th-inning defensive replacement for No. 5 hitter Ryan Holgate in right field—roped an 0-2 pitch into left-center field for a 2-run single to make it 16-15.
