• The Arizona baseball team turned a season-high three double plays and got just enough offense and pitching to escape with a 4-2 win over New Mexico (24-14) at Albuquerque, N.M., on Wednesday.
Junior Ryan Perry, the reigning Pac-10 pitcher of the week, picked up his third win of the year with 2 2/3 scoreless innings of relief for the Wildcats (22-11) and closer Jason Stoffel picked up his sixth save of the season.
