    USF 9, at Stanford 5 (April 1, 2003)
    USF surprised Stanford with a 9-5 victory over the Cardinal in a non-conference game. The game was tied 4-4 before the Dons scored twice in the sixth and added two more runs in the seventh. Ryan Hanson (3-4, RBI) had three hits for the Dons, while Andrew Smith and Nick Cirbo each drove in a pair of runs. USF reliever Kevin Annis (3-2) picked up the victory by scattering a run and three hits in 2.0 innings of work before Derek Tate came on to hold the Cardinal scoreless over the final 2.2 innings to earn his first save of the season.

    Stanford's Carlos Quentin (2-3, 2 2B, RBI) extended his career-high hit streak to 16 and picked up his 200th career hit with a first inning double. Ryan Garko (3-5, 2 2B, 3 RBI) also doubled twice and drove in three runs to raise his team-leading RBI total to 36. Sam Fuld (2-4) extended his hit streak to 12 games, one short of his career-high, with his ninth multiple-hit game during the run.

    Stanford reliever Billy Paganetti (0-1) suffered the loss, allowing two runs (one earned) and two hits in 3.0 innings as the second of five Cardinal pitchers. Paganetti did strike out a career-high six, including five in a row during one stretch.

    Washington 5, at Stanford 3 (March 28, 2003)
    Washington spoiled the Pac-10 homer for Stanford with a 5-3 victory over the Cardinal on Friday at Sunken Diamond. Sean White scattered nine hits and one run over the first 7.1 innings to earn the victory before Brian Carter came on to get the final five outs and record the save.

Brian Hall drew a walk to lead off the Cardinal ninth before Quentin smacked a 1-2 pitch from losing pitcher David Dowling (5-2) over the left field wall.

    Quentin (3-4, 2B, HR, 2 RBI) had three hits to extended his career-high hit streak to 15 games and raised his team-high batting average to .392.

    Ryan Garko (3-4, HR, 4 RBI) tied a career-high with four RBI and had a key three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning to give Stanford its first lead of the day at 7-6 after the Cardinal allowed four first inning runs.

    Sam Fuld (3-6, 3B, 2 RBI) also had three hits, extended his season-long hit streak to 11 games and finished March with a .509 batting average (28-for-55). In addition, Fuld regained his spot on top of Stanford's all-time batting average list with an updated career mark of ..363, one percentage point above the .362 posted by the late Jack Shepard from 1951-53.

Stanford's series win streak started versus Fresno State (2/14 - 2/16, sweep) and continued against Texas (2/22 - 2/23, 2-of-3), USC (2/28 - 3/2, 2-of-3), California (3/7 - 3/9, sweep) and Arizona State (3/22 - 3/24, 2-of-3).

    TOP OF THE PAC
    Stanford's 4-2 Pac-10 record is tied atop the Pac-10 standings with California after the first two weekends of conference action. Stanford has won a total of 18 conference championships in school history, including 16 Pac-10 crowns (includes Southern Division and shared titles). Stanford's last Pac-10 championship came in 2000 when the team finished in a three-way tie for the conference title with Arizona State and UCLA. Last year, Stanford finished second in the final regular season Pac-10 standings with a 16-8 mark, one game behind two-time defending league champion USC. The second-place finish put Stanford among the top two in the conference standings (includes Pac-10 Southern Division) for the ninth straight year and the 20th time in the last 22 years.

    STANFORD PICKED TO WIN PAC-10 BY BASEBALL AMERICA
    Stanford was selected by Baseball America's as the preseason favorite to win the Pac-10, followed by USC, Arizona State, California, Washington, Arizona, UCLA, Oregon State and Washington State.

Fuld is hitting a team-high .508 (30-59) with five doubles, four triples, 10 RBI and two stolen bases during his current streak. The hit streak also includes three four-hit games, a trio of three-hit games and nine multiple-hit contests.

In the last two games, Garko has gone 6-for-9 (.667) with a homer and seven RBI, including a career-high-tying four runs driven in versus Washington (3/30). He has 34 RBI in the team's last 21 games with 12 multiple-RBI contests. Garko has a team-high 12 multiple-RBI contests on the season and has also taken over the team's extra-base hit lead with 15.

    SAM FULD TAKES OVER TEAM'S LEAD IN HITS
    Sam Fuld, who set a single-season school record with 110 hits last year, has taken over sole possession of the team's lead in hits with 45. He also paces the club with 28 runs. Fuld began the season without a hit in his first 14 at bats.

    JOHN MAYBERRY, JR. AND SAM FULD CHALLENGING 50-YEAR-OLD TRIPLE RECORD
    John Mayberry, Jr. and Sam Fuld have six and five triples, respectively, at the halfway point of the regular season and are challenging Stanford's single-season record of 10 set a half-century ago by Jack Shepard in 1953. The next triple for Mayberry and two more for Fuld will put them on the single-season top 10 list in a sixth-place tie with nine others.

    TOBIN SWOPE LEADS TEAM WITH 14 MULTIPLE-HIT GAMES

Stanford did have two home win streaks snapped earlier this year versus Florida State. The Seminoles ended Stanford's 11-game win streak with a 4-3 victory in the second game of the series (2/8) and then won 10-8 in 12 innings in the series finale (2/9) to become the first opponent to win a series at Sunken Diamond since USC took two-of-three against the Cardinal from April 16-18, 1999, a span of 22 series. Stanford has since won four straight home series versus Fresno State (2/14 - 2/16, sweep), USC (2/28 - 3/2, 2-of-3), California (3/7 - 3/9, sweep) and Washington (3/28 - 3/30, 2-of-3). Stanford's next home series is scheduled versus Oregon State (Thursday-Saturday, April 17-19).

    Stanford is looking to extend its string of 40-win seasons to nine in 2003 after picking up its eighth straight 40-win season last year by finishing with a 47-18 overall mark. The last time Stanford didn't win 40 games was when the club finished 27-28 in 1993.

    STANFORD TO FACE SANTA CLARA AND SACRAMENTO STATE NEXT WEEK
    Stanford will play non-conference games next week versus Santa Clara and Sacramento State. The Cardinal will travel to Santa Clara on Tuesday, April 8 (6 pm) before playing a two-game home-and-home series versus Sacramento State (at Stanford, Friday, April 11, 6 pm; at Sacramento State, Saturday, April 12, 2 pm).

    COMMENTS FROM MARK MARQUESS
    (On his team coming back to win two Pac-10 series after losing both series openers)
    'I was proud of our guys winning series after losing both of our series openers and especially because we had to come back in games in order to win series. We had to do it by bouncing back offensively.'

    (On the fact that no Pac-10 team has swept a series in the first two weeks of action)
    'It speaks to the balance of the league. There are a lot of teams that are capable of winning the conference, more so than in recent years. I think it will be that way the whole year, because I don't think any team has enough dominant pitching to be able to go way out in front. The Pac-10 race seems up for grabs and very interesting.'

    (On recent hot stretches by Sam Fuld, Ryan Garko and Carlos Quentin)
    'If we're going to be good and compete for the Pac-10 title, our older guys are going to need to play well. These guys have been doing that lately.'

    (On the upcoming Pac-10 series at Washington State)
    'Washington State is playing much better now with a win over California two weekends ago before taking two-of-three at UC Irvine last weekend. They're always tough in Pullman. In the Pac-10, you have to play well or you can get beat on any given weekend. Washington State's record is deceiving and this is also their opening weekend at home.'
