Coming into game two against No. 6 Washington, No. 7 Arizona’s offense had been struggling to find its groove dropping the first game to the Huskies, losing a 2-1 pitchers duel.
Game two started on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. but the rainy weather of Seattle kicked in and sent a 2-1 game in the bottom of the sixth into a rain delay that eventually postponed the game until Sunday morning. The third game of the series was later announced that it would be canceled due to more rain in the forecast.

The Wildcats were able to tie the game late in the seventh inning off a Sharlize Palacios RBI single. However, in the bottom half of the inning, the Huskies walked it off with a two-run blast winning the series 4-2.
Throughout the series, Arizona struggled to put the bat on the ball, striking out 26 times in two games. Huskies pitcher Gabbie Plain dominated the Wildcats, giving up three runs in two games while only allowing eight hits.
The Wildcats struggled to wake up their bats in Seattle seeing the lineup go 1-for-15 with runners on base. Plus, the team hit a low .163 in those two games equivalating to just three runs.
Arizona falls to 14-5 on the season and has lost its last three games. The Wildcats will finally be back at home next weekend to take on Oregon State.
