No. 6 Stanford's Ninth Inning Comeback Falls Just Short At No. 4 Texas, 8-7
Feb. 19, 2005
Austin, Tex. - No. 6 Stanford (7-4) scored six runs in the top of the ninth inning but still came up just short in a gut-wrenching 8-7 loss at No. 4 Texas (10-0) in a non-conference contest on Saturday at Disch-Falk Field. Jed Lowrie's second career grandslam and Pac-10 leading sixth homer of the season cut the Longhorn lead to 8-7 before Texas could record an out in the frame. Stanford was able to get the tying run to third and the go-ahead run to second later in the frame before Clayton Stewart struck out Jim Rapoport to end the game and earn his first save of the season.
Stanford and Texas will conclude the three-game series on Sunday (1 pm, CT/11 am, PT).
A full recap will follow.
