- The Wildcats have won five straight games and seven of their last eight.
- Friday (June 11) was the latest in the year Arizona has played a game since losing to Arizona State 7-6 in the opening game of the 1976 College World on June 12. The Wildcats went on to win their first of three national titles under Jerry Kindall that season
- Brad Boyer was just 1 for his last 21 before delivering the game-tying hit in the ninth inning on Friday.
