Citizen Staff Report

The University of Arizona baseball team couldn’t mount a rally after falling behind 5-2 in the third inning, losing 8-4 on the road to No. 6 Cal State Fullerton on Wednesday at Goodwin Field.

The loss, the second in as many days in Fullerton, Calif., drops the Wildcats under .500 for the season at 22-23.

UA jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning thanks to Bobby Coyle’s Pac-10 leading seventh triple of the season, scoring Jett Bandy. Coyle then scored on a Brad Glenn sacrifice fly.

Fullerton (34-12) retook the lead with three runs in the bottom of the second and never looked back, touching up Arizona starter Kyle Simon for five runs, four earned, in 2 1/3 innings, dropping his record to 2-5 on the season.

Arizona returns home for a seven-game homestand starting at 7 p.m. Saturday against Loyola Marymount.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
