Sundays have not been good for the Arizona Wildcats in Pac-12 games.
UA allowed season highs in runs and hits in an 18-13 loss to the Oregon Ducks at Hi Corbett Field.
The Wildcats (16-7, 3-3) led 3-0 in the second on a solo home run by novice catchers Daniel Susac, who homer twice a day, and a 2-run single from Jacob Berry.
But Oregon (12-7, 3-3) scored 11 runs over the next two innings and never lagged behind.
Appetizer TJ Nichols lost, and allowed 5 runs in 3.2 innings, while all six UA reliefs gave at least one run.
Susac finished at 4 for 5 with two homers, two doubles and 3 RBIs, while Berry and Ryan holgate each had three hits. Holgate’s tail also included a solo homer in the fifth.
Arizona will play next Thursday in the start of a series of 3 games at ASU. The teams then meet in a single non-conference match on April 6 at Hi Corbett.
