STANFORD REMAINS AT NO. 2 IN TWO OF FOUR MAJOR NATIONAL POLLS
Stanford remains at No. 2 this week in the latest national polls released April 15 by Baseball America and Baseball Weekly/ESPN.

Arizona State (No. 23 Baseball America, No. 14 Baseball Weekly/ESPN, No. 22 Collegiate Baseball, No. 15 NCBWA) is the only other Pac-10 team currently ranked.

The Cardinal began the streak last season with series victories over Arizona (5/11 - 5/13/01) and at Washington State (5/18 - 5/20/01). This year, the Cardinal has won its first 10 regular season series versus Cal State Fullerton (2/1 - 2/3), at Florida State (2/8 - 2/10), at Fresno State (2/15 - 2/18), versus Santa Clara (2/22 - 2/24), versus Cal Poly (3/1 - 3/3), at California (3/8 - 3/10), at USC (3/23 - 3/24), versus Texas (3/28 - 3/30), at Arizona (4/5 - 4/7) and versus USC (4/12 - 4/14). Stanford has three sweeps (first Arizona series, Cal Poly, first USC series) during the stretch and has won two-of-three games in the other nine series. Stanford had previously won 17 consecutive series before being defeated two-of-three games in back-to-back series at USC (4/20 - 4/22/01) and at California (4/27 - 4/29/01) last season and has now 29 of its last 31 regular season series overall.

CARDINAL HITS 11 HOMERS IN RECENT THREE-GAME SERIES VERSUS USC
Stanford hit 11 homers in its most recent three-game series versus USC (4/12 - 4/14). Stanford homered a season-high five times in the middle game of the series, a wild 16-11 loss to the Trojans. The Cardinal also went deep three times in both the series opener and finale, both Stanford wins. Jason Cooper hit three of the 11 homers, while Arik VanZandt and Brian Hall both hit a pair of longballs.

GUTHRIE KEEPS 11-GAME WIN STREAK WITH THIRD STRAIGHT NO-DECISION
Jeremy Guthrie has picked up no decisions in each of his last three starts versus USC (4/12), at Arizona (4/5) and versus Texas (3/28) to keep his 11-game win streak on the mound alive. Guthrie has arguably had two of his better performances in his last two outings, combining for 19.0 innings pitched and a 2.37 ERA as the Cardinal won in extra innings against both USC (7-6 in 10 innings) and Arizona (5-4 in 18 innings). In his previous start against Texas (3/28), Guthrie was taken off the hook for the loss when Chris O'Riordan hit a grandslam with a two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to tie the game before the Cardinal eventually won 7-6 in 10 innings. Guthrie has picked up six victories and four no decisions in his 10 starts this year. Guthrie was 8-4 at one point last season before winning his final five decisions of 2001. Guthrie was last defeated at Sacramento State on May 2, 2001.

STANFORD HEAD COACH MARK MARQUESS
One of the nation's premier collegiate coaches, Mark Marquess is in his 26th season at the helm of Stanford Baseball in 2002. Marquess has a career record of 1072-523-5 (.672), all at Stanford. Marquess coached his 1600th game at Stanford in a 19-2 win over Saint Mary's (4/16) in his most recent game. Last year, he became the 23rd coach in the history of NCAA Division I baseball to reach the 1000-win mark with a 6-2 victory over Florida State in a game played on February 9, 2001. The 1969 Stanford graduate has led the Cardinal to two NCAA titles (1987, '88) and two other CWS title game appearances (2000, '01), as well as 11 College World Series appearances (1982, '83, '85, '87, '88, '90, '95, '97, '99, 2000, '01), 11 NCAA Regional titles (1982, '83, '85, '87, '88, '90, '95, '97, '99, 2000, '01), 10 Pac-10 or Pac-10 Southern Division regular season titles (1983, '84, '85, '87, '90, '94, '97, '98, '99, 2000) and three NCAA Super Regional championships (1999, 2000, '01). The Cardinal has qualified for the NCAA Tournament 19 times under Marquess. He began the 2002 season ranked 12th in victories and 16th in winning percentage among active Division I baseball coaches, while ranking 23rd on the all-time victory list and 42nd on the all-time winning percentage list. He has been named NCAA Coach of the Year three times (1985, '87, '88) and has received Pac-10 or Pac-10 Southern Division Coach of the Year honors on eight occasions (1983, '85, '87, '90, '94, '97, '98, '99). The Cardinal has suffered just one losing season during his tenure and has finished either first or second in the prestigious Pacific-10 (formerly Pac-10 Southern Division) 19 times in the last 21 seasons. Stanford has had 99 professional baseball draft picks in the past 17 seasons, including 12 first round selections in the last 15 years. A member of the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame, Marquess was the head coach of the 1988 United States Olympic baseball team that captured the gold medal. Marquess was also an accomplished football and baseball standout on The Farm and is a member of the Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame. He is one of only six collegiate baseball head coaches to have both played and coached in the College World Series. Marquess was the starting first baseman and a First Team All-American on Stanford's 1967 College World Series squad and played four seasons of minor league baseball with the Chicago White Sox organization.

COMMENTS FROM MARK MARQUESS
(on the upcoming Washington series) 'Washington plays very well at home, so we're expecting a tough weekend at their place. They are difficult to beat at home. It will be a good test for us with the first of two weekends back-to-back in the Northwest.'

(on winning two-of-three versus USC) 'It was big for us and the rest of the league for us to win that third game on Sunday. It helped to keep everybody in the Pac-10 race to give them another loss by bunching everything up.'

(on Stanford's home run surge versus USC) 'Obviously, we hit the ball with some power, and I was pleased with that power.'

(on playing three of the first four Pac-10 series on the road) 'You prefer not to do that, but that's the way the schedule broke for us. When you play nine of the first 12 games on the road, you have a chance to get down. The first 12 games will be tough for us with USC being our only home series in the group.'

(on the balance in the Pac-10) 'Anybody is capable of beating another Pac-10 team in a series. All the teams have enough talent to do that. The league is very unpredictable. The team that's going to win the league is one that can get a couple of sweeps and not get swept, but that will be difficult to do. I would be surprised if anybody ran away with the league title.'

STANFORD COACHING STAFF
Dean Stotz is in his 26th campaign with Stanford Baseball and his third season as associate head coach after he was promoted to the position prior to the 2000 campaign. Stotz served for 23 years as an assistant. Stotz currently coaches third base while also handling various offensive and defensive aspects of the game. Tom Kunis (3rd season) handles the Cardinal pitching staff, while Dave Nakama (3rd season) returns as an assistant coach after three seasons as the head coach at San Francisco State.
