The University of Arizona allowed three runs in the bottom of the ninth on Sunday, losing 3-2 to Michigan State in the Pac-12/Big Ten Challenge in Minneapolis.
The UA lost all three games at the Challenge by one run. The Wildcats (5-6) have five one-run losses already this season.
Kory Young scored the game-winning run for the Spartans as the Wildcats made an errant throw while trying to turn a double play.
Arizona starter Randy Labaut allowed only three hits through eight innings before giving up two straight hits to start the ninth. He left with runners on the corners. Preston Price (0-1) was charged with the loss after relieving Labaut and allowing a hit to the only batter he faced.
Cal Stevenson drove in Matt Frazier on a sacrifice fly in the second inning for the game’s first run. Nick Quintana doubled in Ryan Haug in the sixth to make it 2-0 for Arizona.
Haug finished 2 for 4 in the loss.
The Wildcats host San Diego State at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
