After scoring 36 runs in three games last week to move over the .500 mark, an offensive slump has left the Arizona baseball team with a losing record again.

UA lost to visiting Grand Canyon 3-1 on Tuesday to fall to 11-12 on the year.

The Wildcats managed four doubles against the Antelopes, but stranded eight runners.

Grand Canyon (10-9) snapped a 1-1 tie in the ninth with a pair of runs. The Antelopes took the lead when UA’s Bobby Dalbec threw a wild pitch that scored Paul Panaccione. UA got its only run in the fourth inning when Trent Gilbert scored on a wild pitch. Tyler Parmenter (0-2) took the loss for Arizona.

Starter Tyger Talley pitched well in the no-decision, allowing one run on five hits in 7º innings.

UA’s Kenny Meimerstorf was the only Wildcat with more than one hit, finishing 2 for 3 with a pair of doubles and a walk.

UA, which dropped 2 of 3 to Washington State over the weekend, is back to Pac-12 play this weekend when it visits Washington.
