Arizona 7, Washington State 3: Tyler Crawford throws first complete game for Wildcats

Tyler Crawford went the distance on Sunday for the first time in his career, and the first Arizona Wildcat to do so in 2013 as they went on to beat Washington State 7-3. - Matt Ryerson-US PRESSWIRE

Tyler Crawford recovered from a rough 2nd inning to turn in the best start of his career and the first complete game for Arizona in 2013

Tyler Crawford: Magnificent

That about sums up his day. Besides a rough 2nd inning, where Washington State (18-15, 5-7 PAC-12) scored its lone three runs of the day, the sophomore left-hander was flat out dealing all day.

And he was efficient; just 86 pitches, 55 of them for strikes. And only 41 pitches total over the last six innings! Compare that to 40 pitches thrown by Mathew Troupe and Tyger Talley in just the 9th inning on Saturday.

Crawford (W, 4-1) gave up a total of nine hits and one walk to go with three strikeouts in his first career complete game.

Arizona (23-12, 8-7 PAC-12) gets above .500 in conference play for the first time this year with the 7-3 win, and it couldn't come at a better time with ASU coming to Hi Corbett Field on Tuesday.

Riley Moore returned to the lineup after not starting Friday or Saturday, and went 2-for-2 with 2 RBI and a walk. Looks like the two game break may have paid off.

Trent Gilbert and Kevin Newman also had multi-hit days. Seven Wildcats scored runs, and five had at least one RBI. Let's be real though, today was all about Tyler Crawford.
