Arizona Baseball remains unbeaten at home, sweeps San Jose State Spartans

Brandon Dixon and Matthew Troupe celebrate - Harry How

Stephen Manthei went a career-long 7 2/3 innings on Sunday, locking up a series sweep of San Jose State

In a much more competitive series, the Arizona Wildcats managed to sweep the San Jose State Spartans after beating them 9-4 on Sunday.

Friday was the most intense game of the year so far for Arizona, winning on a walkoff 3-run triple from Brandon Dixon

Saturday saw a season-high 14 hits from the Wildcats as they went on to win 15-4.

Sunday was a chance at redemption for Stephen Manthei. His first start of the year did not go so well against Coppin State, but today was a different story.

Manthei (1-0) shattered his previous single game high of 4 1/3 innings by going 7 2/3 today. Matthew Troupe (S, 3) finished the game and clinched the series sweep.

San Jose State pitcher D.J. Slaton (0-2) had a no-hitter through 6 innings before giving up a lead off single to Riley Moore in the 7th. He collapsed after that, giving up 4 runs before he was replaced.

Moore and Trent Gilbert each had 2-hit games, with Gilbert tacking on 2 RBI to his day. Ryan Koziol and Joseph Maggi also had 2 RBI apiece.

Arizona (7-1) will host Utah Valley (3-3) at Hi Corbett Field Tuesday at 6PM and Wednesday at 1PM. The Wildcats have now won 12 straight games at home, dating back to the 2012 regular season finale against Arizona State.
