Outfielder Tanner O’Tremba delivered the game-winning hit and right-hander Trevor Long pitched three strong innings of relief as Arizona outlasted Washington in 11 innings for a 7-6 win Sunday afternoon.
The win gave Arizona its first road sweep since 2019 and its first-ever sweep of Washington in Seattle.
With the regular season halfway done, Arizona (21-7, 8-3 Pac-12) holds a 1.5-game lead in the conference standings. UCLA is next at 6-3 in the Pac-12 and 19-8 overall.
O’Tremba lined an RBI single through the left side of the infield in the top of the 11th inning to drive in the go-ahead run for Arizona after a three-run bottom of the eighth by Washington (14-13, 5-7) forced the Wildcats into extra innings.
Tremba’s game-winning hit was preceded by a Washington error to open the inning and a single from catcher Daniel Susac to move a runner into scoring position.
Long (1-0) pitched the final three innings of the game — the ninth and both extra innings — and held the Huskies scoreless on just three hits. It was his 11th outing without an earned run this year and dropped his ERA to 1.17.
Starting pitcher Anthony Susac worked three innings for the Wildcats and allowed just two runs (one earned) on four hits. He did not factor into the decision.
The Wildcats end their five-game road trip with a non-conference midweek matchup against Arizona State (13-16, 5-4) at Phoenix Municipal Stadium on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Washington State (10-17, 2-10) comes to Hi Corbett Field for a three-game Pac-12 series starting Friday at 6 p.m.
