STANFORD FALLS FIVE SPOTS TO NO. 9 IN BASEBALL AMERICA POLL
Stanford fell five spots in this week's Baseball America poll released April 29 after dropping two-of-three games at Oregon State last Friday-Sunday and before falling 12-0 at San Jose State on Wednesday. The Cardinal had been the nation's No. 4 team in all four major polls last week but also fell in this week's others polls to No. 8 (Baseball Weekly/ESPN), No. 11 (Collegiate Baseball) and No. 9 (NCBWA). Stanford began the season as the nation's unanimous No. 1 team and stayed on top of the Baseball America poll for the first seven weeks of the season before finally falling out of the top spot for the first time on April 1. Stanford spent two weeks (4/9 - 4/16) last year as the nation's unanimous No. 1 team and six weeks as Baseball America's top team (3/12 - 4/16) before finishing the year at No. 2 in all four polls. Stanford has been ranked No. 1 at one point during each of the past six years (including 2002). Stanford's poll history includes a run as 'king of the polls' in 1998 when the team held the top spot in the Baseball America poll for the entire regular season (a record 14 consecutive weeks). USC (No. 20 Baseball America, No. 19 Baseball Weekly/ESPN, No. 16 Collegiate Baseball, No. 23 NCBWA) and Arizona State (No. 24 Baseball Weekly/ESPN, No. 24 NCBWA) are the other ranked Pac-10 teams.

STANFORD LOSES SECOND STRAIGHT REGULAR SEASON SERIES
Stanford dropped its second straight regular season series by losing two-of-three games at Oregon State (4/26 - 4/28) last weekend after also losing two-of-three the previous weekend at Washington (4/19 - 4/21) to snap its regular season series win streak at 12. The Cardinal began the regular season win streak last year with series victories over Arizona (5/11 - 5/13/01) and at Washington State (5/18 - 5/20/01). This year, the Cardinal 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 had three sweeps (5/11 - 5/13/01 Arizona series, Cal Poly, 3/23 - 3/24/02 USC series) during the stretch and won two-of-three games in the other nine series. Stanford has also 29 of its last 33 regular season series. The Cardinal has not lost three straight regular season series since losing two-of-three games in three straight series at Cal State Fullerton (2/5 - 2/7/95), versus Fresno State (2/10 - 2/12/95) and versus Santa Clara (2/18 - 2/20/95).

CARDINAL DROPS SERIES OPENERS AT WASHINGTON AND OREGON STATE
Stanford has lost its last two series openers at Washington (4/19, 3-1) and at Oregon State (4/26, 3-1). The Cardinal began the season with victories in each of its first 10 series openers versus Cal State Fullerton (2/1, 7-4), at Florida State (2/8, 9-3), at Fresno State (2/15, 6-2), versus Santa Clara (2/22, 5-4), versus Cal Poly (3/1, 8-6), at California (3/8, 15-4), at USC, 9-6 (3/23 - Game 1), versus Texas (3/28, 7-6 in 10 innings), at Arizona (4/5, 5-4 in 18 innings) and versus USC (4/12, 6-5 in 10 innings).

WINNING THE CLOSE ONES
Stanford has been successful in one-run games and extra-inning contests this season. The Cardinal has posted an 8-4 record in one-run games and a 4-2 mark in extra-inning contests.

APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS
For the second consecutive season, the Cardinal has struggled in the second half of April. Last year, the team struggled to a 3-5 record during its eight games in the second half of the month. This year, the team finished at 4-4 after the tax deadline. The month of May was much better to the Cardinal last season when the club posted a 12-3 record despite losing its first game of May last year at Sacramento on May 2, 2001.

TOP OF THE PAC
Stanford is currently in a fourth place tie in the Pac-10 standings and trying to keep alive its string of eight consecutive finishes among the top two in the Pac-10 standings (includes Pac-10 Southern Division). The Cardinal has also finished either first or second in the league standings 19 times over the last 21 years with the only blemishes over that time period a fourth place finish in 1989 and a sixth place showing in 1993. With a current 6-6 conference record, Stanford is 2.0 games behind Washington (8-4 Pac-10) in second place and 3.5 games behind league leader USC (11-4 Pac-10).

ONE MORE WIN FOR 30 AND ANOTHER WINNING SEASON
Stanford needs just one more win to reach the 30-victory mark and guarantee a winning season for the ninth straight year. The last time the Cardinal didn't win 30 games and didn't have a winning season was when the club finished 27-28 in 1993. In fact, it's a rarity when the Cardinal doesn't reach 30 wins or have a winning season. Stanford has 30 or more wins 23 times in 25 years with Mark Marquess as coach and has posted 24 winning seasons during that time.

COMEBACK CARDINAL
Stanford has trailed before coming back to win in 14 of its 29 victories this season -- (vs. Cal State Fullerton, 2/1, 2/2; at Florida State, 2/9, vs. Santa Clara, 2/22, 2/24; at Cal, 3/8, vs. Texas, 3/28; at Arizona, 4/5; at USC, 3/23 - Game 1; vs. San Jose State, 4/9; vs. USC, 4/11; vs. Saint Mary's, 4/16; at Washington, 4/20; vs. Sacramento State, 4/24).

CARDINAL DROPS FIRST MIDWEEK NON-CONFERENCE GAME
Stanford dropped its first midweek non-conference game when the Cardinal was defeated at San Jose State, 12-0 (5/1/02).

OFFENSE BREAKS OUT IN SERIES FINALE AT OREGON STATE
After hitting .180 with just seven hits combined in the first two games of the series at Oregon State (4/26 - 4/27), Stanford broke out for 19 hits in a 13-0 victory over the Beavers in the series finale (4/28). Sam Fuld (4-4, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, SB, career-high five runs) and Chris O'Riordan (4-6, 2B, HR, 3 RBI) led five Stanford players with three or more hits. Ryan Garko (3-4, 2 2B, 3 RBI), Andy Topham (3-5, 2 2B, 2 RBI) and Scott Dragicevich (3-5) added three hits each.

JOHN HUDGINS TOSSES FIRST CAREER SHUTOUT TO IMPROVE TO 7-0
John Hudgins tossed his first career shutout and the first by a Stanford player this season in a 13-0 Cardinal win at Oregon State last Sunday (4/28). Hudgins allowed just four hits and struck out five, retiring 14 consecutive batters at one point. Hudgins improved to 7-0 with the victory and has two of Stanford's three complete games this season.

O'Riordan was 23-for-55 (.418) with two doubles, three homers, 12 RBI and two stolen bases during the 12-game hit streak. O'Riordan has extended his string of consecutive games started at second base to 153.

CHRIS O'RIORDAN LEADING CARDINAL IN PAC-10 PLAY

JEREMY GUTHRIE HAS 11-GAME WIN STREAK SNAPPED

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 1075-528-5 (.670), all at Stanford. Marquess coached his 1600th game at Stanford last week in a 19-2 win over Saint Mary's (4/16). 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 California series) 'We always have played excellent series with California and are looking forward to another great series this weekend. They have a talented ballclub.'

(on losing two-of-three games the last two weekends at Washington and Oregon State) 'Washington and Oregon State both played well and we would like to have won at least another game at those places, but we must move on and play well from here on out.'

(on the Pac-10 race) 'USC has moved out in front of everybody else a little bit but there are still a lot of teams still involved in battling for a championship. It should be a good race for the title and the next couple of spots in the standings right up until the end of league play.'

(on playing three of the final four Pac-10 series at home) 'We hope that playing a bunch of home games over the final four weeks of the season will work in our favor. We've traditionally played well at home and hope to continue that in the next four weeks.'

(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.
