The University of Arizona baseball team moved within a game of .500 with a dominant performance at Stanford on Friday night.
The Wildcats (18-19, 4-12) won 11-1 as Preston Guilmet (3-4) threw seven strong innings, allowing five hits and one run while striking out three.
UA scored four times in the fourth and twice in the fifth to take a 6-0 lead. The Wildcats added two runs in the seventh and three in the eighth.
Brad Glenn went 3 for 5 and hit his 40th career homer for the Wildcats, while Dwight Childs went 2 for 3 with three RBIs.
Glenn and Childs scored three runs apiece.
Jett Bandy, Kyle Stiner and Bobby Coyle also had a pair of hits for Arizona.
Bryce Bandilla pitched two scoreless innings in relief of Guilmet, who won for the first time since March 13.
Stanford’s Jordan Pries (3-1) took the loss, allowing six runs in 4 1/2 innings. The Cardinal had just six total hits, and got their only run on a homer by Toby Gerhart in the sixth.
UA is still in last place in the Pac-10, a half-game behind Oregon. The teams meet again at 1 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. UA will be home next week to host Arizona State at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
