For the Golden Bears, No. 3 hitter Mitch Delfino got back on track with a 3-4 game, and shortstop Brenden Ferney drove in two runs to match opposing ‘Zona third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean’s two RBI game.

Field homered and doubled in a huge day for him, and Ferney doubled for Cal’s lone extra-base hit.

Cal starter Justin Jones lasted just four innings, and Arizona’s lasted just three innings in a game that saw two poor starting pitching performances. However, Tyler Crawford pitched the final four innings for the Wildcats and allowed just one hit for the Pac-12 powerhouse.

Field had a field day, but he was the only player on Arizona with multiple hits, as was Delfino and his three-hit game for Cal. However, DH Vince Bruno had a hit and two doubles for Cal. The Golden Bears drew seven walks in total, while Arizona left nine base-runners on and easily won the hit battle 10-6. Crawford received his first save of the year for the Wildcats, with Tyler Hale earning his second win of the year.
