Sophomore Tyler Crawford pitched Arizona's first complete game of the season as the Wildcats defeated Washington State 7-3 Sunday in Pullman, Wash.

Arizona (23-12, 8-7 Pac-12) scored three times in the first inning before breaking a 3-3 tie with four runs in the sixth.

The UA took two of three in Pullman and has won its last three Pac-12 series.

Despite a shaky start, Crawford (4-1) dominated after the second inning. The lefty turned in his first career complete game, scattering nine hits and one walk to go with three strikeouts. He allowed only three hits over the final six innings against WSU (18-15, 5-7).

Seven different UA players scored runs, while five Wildcats had RBIs.

Arizona will host Arizona State on Tuesday in a nonconference game set to start at 6 p.m.
