One pitch was all Emilio Corona needed to send Arizona to a 10-9 victory over Nevada on Wednesday night at Hi Corbett Field.

The former Pima College standout smacked a walk-off home run to centerfield to give the Wildcats their second straight walk-off victory.

Corona’s game winner was the Wildcats’ fifth home run of the night. Davis had two home runs, while first baseman Kiko Romero and center fielder Mac Bingham also left the yard.

Davis now has 34 home runs in his career, tied for the fifth-most in program history.

He also extended his on-base streak to 59 games, tying what is believed to be the program record.

It marked the second five-homer game of the year for Arizona, with the first being its 20-0 rout of Arizona State on April 19.

Arizona’s win on Wednesday gave it a winning homestand, having taken three of four games from Air Force and Nevada. The Wildcats are 26-20 overall.

The Wildcats to Stanford their final Pac-12 road trip of the season, opening a three-game series in Palo Alto on Friday. All three games will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
