PULLMAN, Wash. - The Arizona Wildcats survived wintry weather and a wacky ninth inning to edge Washington State 6-5 on Saturday and forge a strange one-day split.
WSU (18-14, 5-6 Pac-12) won Game 1, which was suspended in the eighth inning Friday with the Cougars leading by three runs. The home team held on Saturday for a 9-5 win.
The Wildcats nearly blew the afternoon game.
Arizona (22-12, 7-7) led by four runs in the ninth only to watch as closer Mat Troupe walked three straight. Tyger Talley replaced him and eventually escaped the jam.
