TUCSON, Ariz. - Evan Wells' single in the top of the ninth inning broke up a no-hitter Friday as the Gonzaga University (0-1) baseball team fell to No. 27 University of Arizona (1-0) 14-0 in the opening game of the 2007 season.
Arizona's Preston Guilmet (1-0) earned the win allowing one hit in 8.1 innings while striking out four. Combining with Guilmet for the shutout was Cory Burns, who faced the final two batters of the game. Taking the loss for Gonzaga was starter Brandon Harmon (0-1). Harmon allowed eight runs, seven earned, on 13 hits in 5.0 innings of work. Bobby McEwen and Jeremy Stumetz saw time out of the pen for the Bulldogs.
