Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Arizona baseball team is on a roll. Granted, two wins in the last three games is not extraordinary, but the Wildcats are happy and confident, finally.

"A player came up to me after a hard and humid practice on Tuesday and said, 'It's surprising that when you win a series how quickly practice goes,'" said Coach Jerry Kindall, whose team beat UCLA twice last weekend. It was the Wildcats' first series win this season.

Arizona (9-32, 5-16 in the Six-Pac) heads to Stanford this weekend, wanting to continue the winning ways. The ninth-ranked Cardinal (27-16, 14-7) trail league-leading Southern Cal by a half-game.


Left-hander Steve Arffa (1-5, 4.25 ERA) opposes Cardinal left-hander Dan Reed (6-0, 2.89) this afternoon at the Sunken Diamond. Left-hander Ben White (2-6, 8.66) opposes Cardinal right-hander Todd Bartels (1-2, 3.34). Right-hander Ryan Frace (1-4, 5.43) opposes Cardinal right-hander Jason Middlebrook (3-1, 3.09) on Sunday.
