Jeremy Guthrie tossed a 13-inning complete game, while Scott Dragicevich's RBI single in the bottom of the 13th inning drove home Donny Lucy with the winning run. The Cardinal then defeated Long Beach State, 5-4, on Saturday as Tim Cunningham earned the victory and Dan Rich came on to pitch the final 2.2 innings for the save. Stanford jumped out to an early 4-0 lead when Chris O'Riordan led off the game with a homer before Andy Topham had a two-run double and Arik VanZandt an RBI single in the second. Rich retired the last out in the bottom of the ninth with the tying run on third base and the winning run on second. Stanford used a five-run fifth inning to snap a 2-2 tie on its way to an 8-4 victory versus Long Beach State in the Regional final. Jason Cooper keyed the inning with a two-run homer. John Hudgins earned the victory with a complete game performance, scattering 11 hits and four runs.

The Cardinal then swept a pair of Super Regional games over USC, 4-2 and 5-3. Jeremy Guthrie carried a shutout into the eighth inning to record the victory in the Super Regional opener.

Stanford recorded a 5-3 victory over USC to complete its Super Regional sweep on Saturday. Scott Dragicevich (4-4, 2 RBI) tied a career-high with four hits and had a key bases loaded two-RBI single to highlight a four-run Cardinal rally in the top of the sixth inning that erased a 2-1 USC lead. Tim Cunningham picked up his fifth victory in as many starts, while Dan Rich recorded his third save of the postseason.

STANFORD JUMPS TWO SPOTS TO NO. 7 IN BASEBALL AMERICA POLL
Stanford jumped two spots to No. 7 in the latest Baseball America poll released June 3 after sweeping all three games in an NCAA Regional. Stanford currently ranks No. 5 (Collegiate Baseball) and No. 8 (Baseball Weekly/ESPN - final regular season poll) in the other major national polls. 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 year before 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.

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).

Stanford has had 104 professional baseball draft picks in the past 18 seasons, including 13 first round selections in the last 16 years (includes this season). 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 winning the Regional and Super Regional and going to College World Series)
'We're excited, it was great to win the Super Regional versus a strong USC team. I was really pleased with our team, I thought we pitched really well, played good defense and got some timely hitting. Especially for our seniors, I've never had a group that's gone to the College World Series four years in a row, so I'm excited for them and now the job gets tougher. We open up with Notre Dame, and we have Texas and Rice in our bracket. We know how good they are. We're ready, but we know its going to be a difficult task.'

(On this team's senior leadership)
'They help the team a lot because they lead by example with their work ethic in practice and the way they play the game. They know how to play and that stands out. The thing about this class, what's nice about all six of them, is that they've all had to earn their spots. None of them had starting spots as freshmen, and they've had to wait at least one or two years to break into the lineup. I think that says a lot. They didn't come in as superstars, they earned their spots and they worked hard for them; they've done the little things that make them better players, and they've really helped our team and that's made this really special too. They really lead by the way they practice and the way they handle themselves off the field.

(on Jeremy Guthrie and being drafted in the first round)
'Jeremy is one of, if not the best, pitcher in college baseball. He'll be a tremendous professional pitcher because he has the ability to throw three or four pitches for strikes. I'm happy for him because he's earned it and worked hard.'

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.
