Arizona enters final Pac-12 weekend playing its best (defensive) baseball

There is no award given by the Pac-12 for Most Improved Defense, otherwise Arizona would be in line to claim that honor.

The Wildcats (35-18, 16-11 Pac-12) enter this weekend’s regular-season finale series at Oregon (32-21, 15-12) having gone eight consecutive games without committing an error. Dating back to the 1998 season that is the longest streak of errorless play for the program, which for at least the past decade hasn’t been known for its defense.

Since 2012, Arizona has averaged higher than one error per game in seven of 10 seasons and is a shade over that this spring (54 errors in 53 games).
