Bruins Shutout by Stanford
May 17, 2002
LOS ANGELES - Jeremy Guthrie struck out a career-high 13 batters and threw a complete game shutout to lead Stanford to an 11-0 victory over UCLA this evening at Jackie Robinson Stadium. Guthrie scattered six hits and walked none to pick up his ninth win of the season. Stanford improves to 36-15, 12-7 in conference play, while UCLA drops to 25-29, 8-12 in the Pac-10.
Stanford could only manage one run through the first five innings. The Cardinal put their first run on the board in the third inning, as Chris O'Riordan scored on an RBI single by Sam Fuld.
The Cardinal extended its lead to 5-0 in the sixth inning, chasing UCLA starter Mike Kunes (7-4) from the game after 5.1 innings. Jason Cooper hit a two run home run to right field in the eighth inning off of reliever Kevin Jerkens.
Stanford would add four more runs in the top of the ninth off of UCLA reliever Wade Clark for the 11-0 win.
UCLA had its best opportunity to score in the fourth inning. Rashad Parker singled and took second on a wild pitch. He advanced to third on Casey Grzecka's infield single, but Billy Susdorf struck out to end the inning. The Bruins stranded six runners on base.
Fuld finished 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI for Stanford, while Scott Dragecivich was 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs.
The Bruins will return to action on Saturday when they host Stanford in game two of the series. Wes Whisler will be pitching for UCLA.
