Arizona Knocks UW out of CSWS

The Huskies went down for the first time in the tournament losing to conference nemesis Arizona 2-0. The Huskies could have eliminated the once beaten Wildcats with a victory this morning. The two teams play at 4:00 PM PST on ESPN with the winner going on to championship round. We will be back with the recap after the second game. Arizona has now topped the Huskies in 11 of their past 12 meetings. It was the Wildcats' third victory in four tries against Washington this year. Arizona has seven national titles to its credit, while the Huskies are seeking their first one.

In the nightcap Arizona pounded Washington 8-1 to move onto the championship series. Arizona pounded out 12 hits in the decisive game, a season-high allowed by Washington. The seven-run margin of defeat was the largest against Washington since the Huskies lost to Texas, 9-1, to end the 2006 season in the NCAA Super Regional.
