May 22, 2005

Box Score

Stanford, Calif. - No. 8 Arizona (36-17, 16-5 Pac-10) jumped out to an early seven-run lead and held off a Stanford (31-21, 11-10 Pac-10) comeback in the rubber game of a Pac-10 series on Sunday. The Wildcats took control of the final regular season home game of 2005 at Sunken Diamond with a six-run fourth inning after the contest had been tied 2-2 at the end of three frames. Brad Boyer (3-4, 2B, RBI) drove in four runs and was one of five Arizona players with three hits each off a Cardinal pitching staff that allowed a season-high 18 to the Pac-10's top offensive club.

Stanford had 14 hits of its own as Jed Lowrie (3-4, 2B, 3 RBI) and Adam Sorgi (3-5, HR, RBI) led the way with three each.

Arizona reliever David Coulon (3.0 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 SO) was credited with the victory to improve to 3-2, while Cardinal reliever Blake Holler (1.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 SO) took the loss to fall to 6-3.

Stanford will next visit third-place and No. 21 USC (34-18, 13-8 Pac-10) in a three-game Pac-10 series in Los Angeles that will conclude the 2005 regular season for both clubs next Friday-Sunday, May 27-29 (7 pm, 2 pm, 1 pm, PT).
