Arizona stranded 10 runners as Shelby Babcock was outdueled by Tina Andreana in a 2-1 Oregon State victory Friday in Corvallis, Ore.

The Wildcats (28-20, 5-11 Pac-12) appeared poised to tie the game in the top of the seventh when Lauren Young ripped a two-out single up the middle with two on. Oregon State second baseman Ya Garcia dived to her right to knock down the ball and tossed it to catcher Ally Kutz to cut down Chelsea Suitos - trying to score from second - at home.

In both the fifth and sixth innings, the Wildcats had runners at third with fewer than two outs and could not score.

Arizona, held without a hit through the first three innings, scored its run in the fourth. Suitos drew a leadoff walk, moved to second on Kelsey Rodriguez's sacrifice bunt and scored on Chelsea Goodacre's single up the middle.

Goodacre's 52nd RBI of the season tied the Pac-12 lead.

Oregon State is 28-17, 5-11.
