Preston Guilmet and Jason Stoffel didn’t need much help from the offense Friday.

The duo combined to shut out Michigan in the University of Arizona baseball team’s 2-0 win at Sancet Stadium.

Guilmet (2-1) fired six shutout innings and Stoffel closed the door with three of his own to notch his fourth save of the year and 22nd of his career.

Guilmet allowed eight hits and three walks, but struck out eight. Stoffel notched four strikeouts while allowing one hit.

Chris Fetter (2-1) threw a complete game for Michigan, which fell to 10-3.

Hunter Pace singled in Kyle Stiner for UA’s first run in the third inning. In the fifth, the Wildcats wrapped up the scoring when Dwight Childs tripled and then scored on a wild pitch.

Bobby Coyle and Pace each had two hits for UA.

The teams meet again at 4 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday.

UA softball wins two

The Wildcats moved to 26-5 with two wins at the Judi Garman Classic in Fullerton, Calif., on Friday.

UA beat New Mexico 9-1 in five innings in the first contest, then held off a late Texas rally to win 6-5 later in the day.

Stacie Chambers blasted two homers in the win over New Mexico. She hit her third grand slam of the year in the first inning to put UA up 4-0, then added a three-run shot in the fourth to give the Wildcats a 9-0 lead.

Chambers, who has 15 homers, finished 2 for 3 with seven RBIs.

Kristen Arriola and Lini Koria each went 2 for 2 in the win, with Koria hitting her ninth homer of the year.

Sarah Akamine (13-3) tossed four scoreless innings, striking out five and allowing six hits.

Against Texas, UA’s 6-2 lead almost evaporated in the top of the seventh as the Longhorns scored three runs before the Wildcats were able to record the last out.

Brittany Lastrapes went 2 for 3 at the top of the order for UA. She hit her eighth homer of the year in the bottom of the first to tie the game at 1.

UA later led 4-2 when Sam Banister hit a two-run double to put the Wildcats up four.

Sarah Akamine (12-3) picked up the win, allowing one earned run in four innings. Jennifer Martinez picked up her first save of the year despite allowing three runs in three innings.

With the tying run on base, Martinez struck out Loryn Johnson to end the game.
