Series Notes: Stanford has won eight consecutive season series and seven straight regular season three-game sets against USC but with the teams splitting their first four games this season Stanford will need to sweep the final two games of the current series between the teams to keep both streaks going • Stanford has posted a 41-15 record against the Trojans since the season series win streak began in 1997 after the Trojans had swept all six games between the clubs in 1996 • The last time the Trojans won a series against the Cardinal was from April 20-22, 2001, in Los Angeles when USC took two-of-three games • Earlier this season, Stanford won two-of-three when the teams played three non-conference games at Stanford (February 25-27) but the Trojans won the first game of their Pac-10 series on Friday night with a 5-2 victory as Ian Kennedy and Paul Koss combined on a five hitter, while Billy Hart (3-3, 2 2B) led the Trojan offense • Mark Romanczuk pitched a four-hit complete game shutout with a season-high 12 strikeouts in a 6-0 Cardinal win in the first 2005 meeting between the clubs • On Saturday, Jim Rapoport scored the game-winning run when John Mayberry, Jr. beat out a potential inning-ending double play for an RBI fielders choice in a 4-3 Stanford victory • USC avoided being swept with an 8-2 victory in Sunday's series finale
