Brandon Dixon hit a record two home runs to lead the No. 20 Arizona Wildcats to a 14-2 victory over Butler on Tuesday night.

Dixon became the first player - Wildcat or opponent - to register a multi-homer game at spacious Hi Corbett Field since Arizona (14-5) moved there in 2012.

The third baseman went 4 for 5 with five RBIs, finishing a double short of the cycle.

Dixon tripled in a run in the first inning, blasted a 410-foot solo shot in the third, had an RBI single in the fourth and added a two-run homer in the eighth.

UA lefty Tyler Crawford (3-1) allowed only two hits and one unearned run in 5 1/3 innings, and struck out four.

Shortstop Kevin Newman went 4 for 5 with two RBIs.
