The Arizona Wildcats only managed five hits in each of the first two games of the USC series. So you ask, how could it get any worse?
How about a two-hitter?
That's exactly what USC did on Saturday. Kevin Newman picked up the first Wildcat hit in the 5th, and Zach Gibbons got the other one in the 6th.
Those two hits were all Trojan starting pitcher Bob Wheatley would allow during his seven innings of shutout baseball. Kyle Davis finished the game off with a two-inning save.
Arizona starter Tyger Talley was cruising through six innings as well, but in the seventh, USC managed to string together four hits, which plated the only two runs of the game.
To end that seventh, Tyler Krause threw out a runner at home for the second night in a row, begging the question of why he hasn't been in the field this year until this series.
Arizona also saw Scott Kingery return to the lineup as a DH, but he went 0-for-3 on the night.
This is the first time Arizona has been swept by USC since 2001, and the first time USC has swept any Pac-12 team since Oregon in 2009.
Also, a night after Cody Hamlin forgot his jersey, Kenny Meimerstorf was wearing the wrong number late in the game. What's going on there?
If there was any glimmer of hope for the postseason after last week's UCLA series, it's gone now. Way gone.
