No. 24 TCU Takes Stanford In NCAA Regional Opener, 5-1
June 4, 2005
Waco, Tex. - Lance Broadway pitched No. 24 TCU (41-18) to a 5-1 victory over Stanford (32-24) in the opening game of the NCAA Waco Regional at Baylor Ballpark on Saturday. Broadway improved to 15-1 on the season by allowing just one run and six hits with seven strikeouts and a walk in his fifth complete game of the campaign. The Horned Frogs scored three times in the bottom of the first inning off losing pitcher Jeff Gilmore (10-3) and never trailed.
Matt Carpenter (2-3, 2 RBI) had a clutch two-out bases loaded single in the first inning TCU rally. Bo Cogbill (2-2) and Stuart Musslewhite (2-4) added two hits each for the Horned Frogs, while Kyle Dahlberg hit a solo homer in the fourth and Shelby Ford drove in the other TCU run with a RBI single in the seventh.
Michael Taylor (2-3, 2 2B) and Chris Lewis (2-3) had four of Stanford's six hits. Taylor scored Stanford's only run on a wild pitch by Broadway in the fifth, snapping his string of 25 scoreless innings.
Erik Davis (2.0 IP, 2 H, 2 SO) was not charged with a run in his relief outing for the Cardinal but did allow Ford's seventh inning RBI single when he relieved Gilmore after Stanford's starter allowed a leadoff double by Stuart Musslewhite to start the Horned Frog seventh.
Stanford will next play in a regional elimination game on Sunday (11 am, CT/9 am, PT) against the loser of Saturday's other opening game of the Waco regional between fourth-seeded UT-San Antonio (27-32) and top-seeded host Baylor (39-21). Baylor is the No. 4 national seed in the 2005 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship and ranked No. 8 in the country by Baseball America.
