Kent St. vs. Arizona: Cody Hamlin leads Wildcats to series victory

Bobby Dalbec got his first three career hits Sunday vs. Kent St. - Jason Bartel

Cody Hamlin got his Arizona career started on the right foot

Junior college transfer Cody Hamlin made his Arizona debut on Sunday, and he did not disappoint.

Hamlin worked seven innings of one-run baseball for the Wildcats, leading his team to a series win over the Kent St. Golden Flashes.

Box score

Kent St. only managed four hits during the 7-1 loss on Sunday, a day after racking up 17 hits against six different Arizona pitchers Saturday.

Tyger Talley also made his first appearance of the 2014 season, working the final two innings of the game.  No hits and no runs, but did give up two walks.

Arizona's 3-through-7 hitters went a combined 11-for-18.  Freshman Bobby Dalbec picked up his first three hits of the season.  He also drove in a run, and scored a run.

Jordan Berger was behind the plate, as Sunday was a scheduled day off for Riley Moore while he recovers from offseason knee and shoulder injuries.  Berger took advantage of the playing time, knocking in two runs in the fourth inning.  Cody Ramer also had two RBI on the day.

No strikeouts from any Arizona hitter on Sunday.  That is definitely a good sign moving forward.  With every non-conference game being played at Hi Corbett this year, just getting the ball in play greatly improves the Wildcats' chances of being able to dominate heading into Pac-12 play.

On the Kent St side, only DH Zarley Zalewski had more than one hit.  He also drove in the Flashes' only run.  Michael Clark started the game, went four innings, and gave up four runs.  Six other Kent St. pitchers pitched the final four innings.

Arizona is back at it on Tuesday night as Utah Valley comes to Tucson.  First pitch is schedule for 6 PM.
