Arizona Baseball: Wildcats give up school-record 30 hits in 23-1 blasting by the Huskies

The Arizona Wildcats suffered their worst loss in the Andy Lopez era on Friday when they lost to the Washington Huskies 23-1 - US PRESSWIRE

Not the best effort by the Wildcats

With four series remaining, the Wildcats need to be dominating teams like the Washington Huskies, who came in to Tucson 10th in the PAC-12, only ahead of Utah.

Well, Friday's game did not go as planned for Arizona, who fell to 9-10 in conference play, good for sixth in the standings. Washington, now 7-12 and tied for ninth with Washington State, scored 23 runs on 30 hits. The 30 hits were the most given up by Arizona ever. EVER. The 22 run loss is also the biggest loss in the Andy Lopez era at U of A, which dates back to 2002.

Here's some team comparison from Friday's game just to give you some sort of an idea of exactly how lopsided it was.

Washington Arizona
Runs 23 1
Hits 30 8
Pitchers used 2 5
Total pitches 103 191
Runners stranded 10 7
# of players w/ run scored 10 1
# of players w/ RBI 8 1
# of players w/ hit 11 5
# of players w/ 2+ hits 9 2
# of players w/ 2+ RBI 7 0
Total at-bats 54 33
Total plate appearances 60 35

Anyways, hoping for better things on Saturday as James Farris (4-3, 4.21 ERA) takes the mound for the Wildcats against UW's Austin Voth (4-5, 2.84 ERA). The good news is that since it was a blowout, Andy Lopez didn't use any of the regular bullpen guys so the pitching situation still looks OK for the rest of this series. But, Saturday and Sunday have become must-wins for the Wildcats as they remain on the bubble to make the postseason.
