A two-run double in the sixth inning Friday night put the Huskies ahead for good, and Washington beat Arizona 8-7 in Seattle.

The Wildcats’ bats began the game big. Arizona had five hits and three runs before it made its first out. On that first out, a Riley Moore sacrifice fly to center, the UA added a fourth run.

Scott Kingery led off the game with a double to left field. Cody Ramer had an infield single, then Kevin Newman drove in Kingery with a single through the left side. Trent Gilbert doubled, scoring Ramer, and Zach Gibbons singled, scoring Newman.

Washington (14-5-1, 3-1 Pac-12) went ahead with a five-run second.

In the fourth, the Cats (11-13, 1-3) reclaimed the lead with three runs, and they still led 7-6 in the sixth.

In the bottom of the sixth, a double, an error and a walk set up Austin Rei’s one-out, two-run double, and the Huskies had an 8-7 lead.

Washington starter Jared Fisher didn’t make it out of the fourth inning. Arizona had 11 hits and seven runs against Fisher. Huskies reliever Brandon Choate pitched 2⅓ hitless innings.
