Brown led off the sixth with a solo shot to cut UNLV's lead to 9-4. Sophomore catcher Nick Hundley's one-out single drove in sophomore outfielder Trevor Crowe later in the inning to pull Arizona (18-15-1, 5-4 Pacific 10 Conference) to within four. [Read article]

Freshman centerfielder Caitlin Lowe is fifth in the country in batting average at .483, first in steals and first in runs scored. Lowe is 15 runs away from the No. 8 spot on Arizona's all-time single-season chart. After being caught stealing just once, she is No. 6 in UA history in steals and 10 steals behind the No. 2 spot.
