The Arizona baseball team opened a three-game series Friday night against Texas State at Hi Corbett Field with a 7-2 victory.

Here are a few key stats from the win:

Career-high 6.2 innings pitched for starter TJ Nichols:

After tying his career-high of six innings pitched last week, Nichols delivered another fantastic outing against Texas State. The sophomore allowed one unearned run on four hits over 6.2 innings with six strikeouts and three walks. He also tossed over 100 pitches for the first time in his career.

Five runs off Texas State starter Zeke Wood:

The story of the season entering this series for Texas State was the pitching staff. Wood delivered two quality starts to open the season, allowing 2 runs on one hit over six innings against Utah Valley before he allowed just one hit again over seven shutout innings against Ohio State.

Wood did not have quite the same success against the Wildcats as he allowed 5 runs on four hits over four innings.

Tanner O’Tremba hot stretch continues:

O’Tremba went 2-3 with two doubles, three RBIs and one run on Friday. He is now hitting .475 on the season, picking up at least one hit in nine of 10 games and multiple hits in six of 10 games.

O’Tremba is not the only Wildcat doing damage at the plate as five players are hitting .300 or better.
