    USC Hits Five Home Runs in Completing Sweep of Cats

    TUCSON, Ariz. -- Senior designated hitter Jason Brown hit two of Southern California's season high five home runs leading the fifth-ranked Trojans (34-16, 15-12 in the Six-Pac) to a 13-9 win over Arizona (29-22, 11-13) here Sunday afternoon, giving USC a three-game sweep of the Wildcats.

    Brown scored three and drove in three with three hits, including his seventh and eighth home runs. Sophomore center fielder Robb Gorr also collected three hits for USC, including his third homer of the season. The five home runs allowed were the most by Arizona pitching this season.

    For Arizona, which has lost its last six conference games, junior center fielder Diego Rico collected three hits, while junior first baseman Kenny Corley doubled twice, driving in three.

    Senior righty Scott Henderson (6-3) picked up the win for USC, while sophomore left-hander Ryan Moskau (3-3) took the loss for Arizona. Junior right-hander Jack Krawczyk earned his 10th save of the season with 1.2 innings of hitless relief.

    Arizona returns to action Tuesday night at 7:00 when the Cats play their final home contest of the year against Grand Canyon.
