Other Series Notes: USC is the only opponent on the 2007 Stanford schedule that leads the all-time series over the Cardinal. The Trojans have also had a tremendous amount of success over Stanford recently with four consecutive series victories, taking two-of-three in the first three sets and each of the first two games in the current series. Prior to USC's recent resurgence versus the Cardinal, Stanford had been dominating the action between the two clubs. The Cardinal had won the previous seven regular season three-game sets as well as eight consecutive season series from 1997-2004 while posting a 41-14 record in 55 games against the Trojans beginning with the 1997 season and running through the first three-game series of the 2005 campaign.

STANFORD NEEDS WIN TO AVOID FIRST HOME SWEEP SINCE 1997
Stanford needs a victory on Sunday to avoid being swept in a three-game regular season home series for the first time since the Cardinal dropped three in row to Arizona State at Sunken Diamond from April 11-13, 1997. The stretch runs a span of 70 regular season three-game home series. Stanford was in the same situation twice in 2006 but came up with victories over Kansas and Washington State to avoid sweeps.

THE NATIONAL POLLS
Stanford is not ranked in any of the five in-season polls (Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball, NCBWA, Rivals.com, Ping Baseball) most recently released on Monday, March 5. Stanford started the season ranked as high as No. 23 by Collegiate Baseball.

WIN STREAKS GONE, LOSING SKID HERE
Stanford's season-best eight-game win streak was snapped in a 13-5 non-conference loss at Santa Clara on Tuesday, March 6. The eight-game run was the longest since the 2004 club also won eight straight from March 23 - April 3, 2004. The team's nine-game home win streak was snapped in the Cardinal's next game versus USC at Sunken Diamond on March 9. The nine-game home win streak had been the longest since the 2004 club won 12 straight home contests from April 10 - May 18, 2004. Stanford's 9-0 home start was also its best since the 1993 club began the season 10-0 at Sunken Diamond. After a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to USC on Saturday, Stanford has now lost three in a row to equal its longest slide of the season.

STREAK SWEEP ALSO ENDS AT TWO
Stanford had swept each of its last two opponents in three-game series before dropping the first two games of its current three-game set to USC on March 9 and 10. Stanford has previously swept Kansas (February 23-25) and California (March 2-4) in its previous two series. The back-to-back home sweeps marked the first time the Cardinal had recorded back-to-back sweeps since Stanford won three in a row from both Fresno State (January 29-30DH) and Kansas (February 12DH-13) in its first two home series of 2005.

STANFORD GETS 2500TH WIN
Stanford became just the fifth team in the history of NCAA Division I Baseball to reach 2500 wins when the Cardinal reached the milestone with a 9-7 victory over California on March 4. Stanford has an all-time record of 2500-1558-32 (.615) in 4090 games over 114 seasons including 2007. Fordham, Texas, USC and Michigan are the only teams with more all-time wins than the Cardinal.

WINNERS
Stanford has posted winning campaigns for 13 straight seasons (1994-2006), as well as 41 of the last 42 years and 58 of the past 60 prior to 2007. Stanford is currently four games over .500 (10-5).

MARK MARQUESS TIED FOR 11TH
Mark Marquess moved into a tie for 11th place with Miami's Ron Fraser on the all-time win list for NCAA Division I coaches with his most recent victory versus California (March 4). Marquess has an all-time record of 1267-625-5 (.669) over 1897 games that also ranks him sixth among active NCAA Division I coaches and is in his 31st season as Stanford's head coach. Marquess also has impressive postseason (112-52, .683, 24 Appearances), Regional (68-25, .731, 24 Appearances, 14 Titles), Super Regional (10-4, .769, 6 Appearances, 5 Titles), College World Series (34-23, .596, 13 Appearances, 2 Titles) and Pac-10 (501-327, .605, 12 Titles) records.

A QUICK LOOK AT THE CURRENT SERIES STATS
Stanford has allowed a .351 batting average and fielded at just .950 in the first two games of the series while posting a stellar 3.50 ERA that has not yielded a victory. Four Stanford individuals -- Adam Sorgi (.667, 2-3), Sean Ratliff (.500, 4-8, HR, 2 RBI), Joey August (.44, 4-9) and Brent Milleville (.400, 2-5, RBI) -- are hitting .400 or better in the series. Four of the six pitchers that have pitched -- Tom Stilson (0-1, 0.00, 2.2 IP, 1 SO), Andrew Clauson (0-1, 0.00, 1.1 IP, 2 SO), David Stringer (0-0, 0.00, 0.2 IP) and Max Fearnow (0-0, 0.1 IP) -- have not given up an earned run while Jeremy Bleich (0-1, 2.08, 8.2 IP, 3 SO) also pitched well in his start.

A QUICK LOOK AT TEAM STATS
Stanford has struggled in all three team statistical categories as the Cardinal is hitting .278 with a 5.19 ERA on the mound and a .957 fielding percentage. All three numbers are worse than its opponents. Stanford has also been outscored by its opponents by three runs (103-100). The key to the team still being able to manage a respectable 10-8 record is nine victories by three or runs or less, including four one-run wins, three two-run victories and a pair of three-run wins.

A QUICK LOOK AT INDIVIDUAL STATS
Jeffrey Inman (2-1, 4.45, 32.1 IP, 29 SO) leads or co-leads the team in victories (co-leader), strikeouts and ERA among those pitchers that have pitched at least one inning per team game played. Jeremy Bleich (1-2, 4.91, 36.2 IP, 20 SO) paces the club in innings pitched and starts. Austin Yount (2-0, 5.23, 10.1 IP, 4 SO) is the only other Stanford pitcher besides Inman with more than one victory. Five other pitchers -- Andrew Clauson (1-0, 1.59, 5.2 IP, 5 SO), Tom Stilson (1-1, 3.24, 58.1 IP, 5 SO), Max Fearnow (1-1, 4.82, 9.1 IP, 8 SO), Blake Hancock (1-0, 5.40, 5.0 IP, 6 SO) and Nolan Gallagher (1-2, 7.36, 22.0 IP, 16 SO) -- have joined Bleich to each record one of the team's 10 wins. David Stringer (0-0, 2,35, 15.1 IP, 13 SO) has six of the team's eight saves. Stringer also leads the club with 12 appearances. Fearnow has the team's other two saves. Sean Ratliff is having a big season and leads the Cardinal in several offensive categories, including batting average (.342), runs scored (21), hits (25), total bases (38) and stolen bases (7). Michael Taylor paces the club with three homers and 12 RBI, while co-leading the team with three hit by pitches. Other offensive team leaders include Cord Phelps (6 2B, 3 3B, 7 BB), Jeff Whitlow (.643 SLUG%, 1 SAC), Brian Juhl (3 HBP, 2 SF), Ryan Seawell (3 HBP), Adam Sorgi (.429 OB%) and Joey August (1 SAC).

TOUGH STARTS
Stanford started the season with an 0-3 record to mark the first time since 1989 the Cardinal had lost its first three games of the season. The sweep at Cal State Fullerton was also the first time Stanford had been swept in a three-game season-opening series in the school's recorded history. The team was also 2-5 after seven games before its current season-best three-game win streak. The 2-5 start was Stanford's worst mark after seven contests since a 1974 club actually started 2-8. Stanford also has a 1-6 record in its first seven road games which is the team's worst record after seven road games since at least 1959 when game-by-game records are available.

MICHAEL TAYLOR PRESEASON HONORS
Michael Taylor earned 2007 Third Team Preseason All-American honors from Baseball America and is also on the Watch List for the College Baseball Foundation's Brooks Wallace Award Watch List. Taylor has a .250 batting average in the team's first 18 games of 2007. He leads or co-leads the team in several offensive categories including home runs (3), RBI (12) and hit by pitches (3). Taylor has made 134 consecutive starts and started 136 of 137 possible games during his three-year Cardinal career.

SEAN RATLIFF PICKS UP A COUPLE OF HONORS
Sean Ratliff earned a couple of awards on March 6 for his play during the week ending on March 5, 2007. Ratliff was named the Pac-10 Player of the Week and was also honored on the College Baseball Foundation's National Honor Roll. Ratliff scored seven runs in the final two games March 3 and 4 of Stanford's most recent series versus California with a career-high and team season-high four on Sunday as the Cardinal completed a three-game sweep of the Golden Bears. Ratliff was also 4-for-10 (.400) in the series with a double, triple, two walks and a stolen base. In addition, he posted a .900 slugging percentage and a .500 on-base average during the three-game set.

DAVID STRINGER SAVES FIVE STRAIGHT
David Stringer recorded five saves in as many games from February 20 - March 3. Stringer earned a spot on the College Baseball Foundation's weekly national honor roll for the week of February 27 when he saved four games during the previous week and then added one more against California (March 2) to run the streak to five before failing in a save attempt versus California on March 3. Stringer has six saves and a 2.35 ERA overall without a decision while appearing in a team-high 12 of the club's 18 games and pitching 15.1 innings.

LONG GAME STREAK BROKEN

STANFORD RECORDS FIRST ERRORLESS GAME
Stanford recorded its first errorless game of the season versus USC on March 10 after making at least one error in the first 17 games of the season. The Cardinal had actually made at least one error in 19 straight contests dating back to the final two games of 2006.

STEADY STARTERS
Stanford has a pair of players -- Sean Ratliff (CF) and Michael Taylor (RF) -- that have started all 18 games this season (all in the same position). Taylor has actually started 134 in a row dating back to his 2005 freshman campaign and 136 of 137 possible contests during his three seasons at Stanford.

SUNKEN DIAMOND - HOME SWEET HOME
Stanford is currently towards the latter stages of a stretch of playing 11 of 12 games at Sunken Diamond from February 20 - March 24, where the Cardinal is 9-2 this season. There are few better ways to spend an afternoon than heading to Sunken Diamond to take in a Stanford Baseball game. Located a stones throw away from the new Stanford Stadium, the home of Stanford Baseball is considered one of the most beautiful places in the country to play and watch college baseball. Sunken Diamond has served as a host site for 13 NCAA Regionals, as well as NCAA Regionals on five occasions. Stanford has clinched 10 of its 15 trips to the College World Series at Sunken Diamond. Stanford has also made Sunken Diamond a tough place for opponents in recent years, winning at least 17 games at home in each of the last 11 seasons with an amazing 301-87 (.776) record during the stretch.

2007 STANFORD-USC GAMES
March 9, 2007 - at USC 11, Stanford 8
USC scored five unearned runs in the top of the eighth inning on the way to an 11-8 victory over Stanford in the opener of a three-game non-conference series at Sunken Diamond. Stanford had tied the contest at 6-6 in the bottom of the seventh when Sean Ratliff (2-4, HR, 2 RBI) connected on a two-run homer and Michael Taylor followed him two batters later with a solo shot. The loss was Stanford's first of the 2007 season at Sunken Diamond, where the Cardinal had began its home slate with a 9-0 record. USC's 21 hits were the most by a Cardinal opponent this season as the Trojans also took advantage of a season-high four Cardinal errors to score a total of six unearned runs. Michael Torres (4-5, 2B, 2 RBI) led the USC offense with four hits while three additional players - Grant Green (3-5, 2B, 3B, RBI, SB), Robert Stock (3-5, RBI) and Nick Buss (3-6, RBI) - had three each. Hector Estrella (2-4, 2 RBI) and Lucas Duda (2-4, RBI) added two apiece. Joey August (3-5) equaled a career-best and recorded a season-best three hits for the Cardinal, while Adam Sorgi (2-3) had a pair of hits and reached base in all four of his plate appearances, and Brent Milleville was 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI. Taylor drove in two runs.
Quote of the Day ... 'Tonight was not a particularly well played game. We just need to come back and play better tomorrow.' - Mark Marquess

March 10, 2007 - at USC 2, Stanford 1
Jeremy Bleich carried a three-hit shutout through eight innings but USC rallied for two runs in the top of the ninth to hand Stanford a heartbreaking 2-1 non-conference loss on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Sunken Diamond. Hector Estrella's two-out RBI single through the right side of the infield scored Lucas Duda with the game-winning run. Duda had tied the game at 1-1 earlier in the inning when he singled home pinch-runner Spencer Pabst. Paul Koss retired the Cardinal in order in the bottom of the ninth and struck pinch-hitter Randy Molina for the final out to notch the save. USC reliever Kevin Couture earned the victory after limiting the damage in the Cardinal seventh. Bleich (8.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 SO) was charged with the loss in the longest outing of his career. Duda (3-4, 2B, RBI, SB) had half of USC's six hits, while Sean Ratliff (2-4, 2B, SB) was the only Stanford player with more than one of the six Cardinal hits.
Quote of the Day ... 'I should have gotten job in the ninth, and I didn't,' said a subdued Bleich after the contest. 'I've got to do a better job at finishing the job and obviously I will work at that.' -- Jeremy Bleich

2006 STANFORD-USC GAMES
March 10, 2006 - Stanford 7, at USC 6
Chris Lewis' two-RBI double with two outs in the top of the eighth inning proved to be the game-winner as Stanford held off a rally in the bottom of the ninth inning in a 7-6 win over USC. Lewis (3-4, 2B, 3 RBI) led the Cardinal offense, while Joey August (2-4, HR, 2 RBI) and Chris Minaker (2-5, 2B, 2 RBI) drove in Stanford's other four runs. Erik Davis earned the save by retiring both batters he faced after coming into the game with the Cardinal holding on to a precarious 7-6 lead with the bases loaded and only one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Quote of the Day ... 'Any time you have a one-run game you have to be on the high end of it. It's a morale thing because any time you get beat by one run, you second guess and ask what you could have done differently.' - Chris Lewis

March 11, 2006 - USC 16, at Stanford 7
USC scored six runs in the bottom of the second and never looked back in a 16-7 victory over Stanford. Daniel Perales (5-5, 2 2B, HR, 4 RBI) and Johnny Bowden (3-4, 2 2B, 5 RBI) had huge offensive days to lead a 20-hit Trojan attack that gave USC starter Ryan Cook plenty of support in his first collegiate victory. Randy Molina (4-4, 2B, RBI) had four hits for Stanford.
Quote of the Day ... 'This was just one of those days when not much went right for us offensively or on the mound.' - Mark Marquess

March 12, 2006 - at USC 7, Stanford 2
USC won the rubber game of a three-game series over Stanford by a score of 7-2 as the Trojans scored seven unanswered runs after the Cardinal had taken an early 2-0 lead. Baron Frost's suicide squeeze with one out in the sixth inning gave USC its first lead before Darin Vieira capped the USC comeback with a two-out bases loaded three-RBI double in the bottom of the eighth. Three USC pitchers retired the final 15 Stanford batters in a row. Tommy Milone picked up the win despite a shaky start, retiring the final nine batters he faced before relievers John Dunn and Paul Koss retired the side in order in the eighth and ninth innings with Koss striking out the side. Brent Milleville hit his first career home run for the Cardinal with a solo shot in the fourth, while Ryan Seawell (3-4, SB) had three hits.
Quote of the Day ... 'We had a chance to win this one, but you have to give USC credit. They played well and came up with the big hit or big play when they needed to.' - Mark Marquess

April 1, 2006 - at Stanford 9, USC 7 (Game 1); USC 3, at Stanford 2 -- 12 innings (Game 2)
Stanford and USC split a doubleheader with the Cardinal coming from behind to win the opener, 9-7, before losing a 12-inning 3-2 heartbreaker in the nightcap. Chris Lewis' three-run homer keyed a six-run bottom of the sixth to lift the Cardinal to its dramatic comeback win over the Trojans in the opener, while USC scored an unearned run without a hit in the top of the 12th to pull out the nightcap. Stanford left the bases loaded in both the bottom of the 11th and 12th innings in the nightcap as winning pitcher John Dunn finally recorded the last out of the doubleheader seven hours and 36 minutes after action began. Stanford reliever Max Fearnow recorded his first collegiate victory in the opener.
Quote of the Day ... 'It's always tough to sweep a doubleheader, but we are disappointed today because we knew we had a chance.' - Mark Marquess

April 2, 2006 - USC 6, at Stanford 1
USC earned its first series victory at Sunken Diamond since 1999 and also wrapped up its first season series triumph against Stanford since 1996 with a 6-1 win over the Cardinal in the rubber game of a three-game set. Ryan Cook notched the victory by holding the Cardinal to just one run on four hits and three walks, while striking out five over 8.1 innings. David Parrow got the final two outs for the Trojans in the bottom of the ninth. Matt Cusick (3-4, 2 RBI) led a Trojan offense that outhit Stanford, 11-4. Stanford starter Matt Manship took the loss despite keeping the Cardinal close by allowing just three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks, while striking out three over the first 6.0 innings.
Quote of the Day ... 'We just need to get better. We really haven't played very good baseball in any phase of the game recently.' - Mark Marquess

STANFORD HEAD COACH MARK MARQUESS
One of the nation's premier collegiate coaches and the winningest coach in Stanford Baseball history, Mark Marquess is in his 31st season at the helm of the Cardinal and his 39th associated with the program in 2007. Marquess has won more games than any coach in any sport ever at Stanford with the amazing numbers he has posted during his long tenure on The Farm. Marquess has a 1267-625-5 (.669) all-time record in 1897 career games, as well as equally impressive marks in postseason (112-52, .683), NCAA Regional (68-25, .731), NCAA Super Regional (10-4, .714), CWS (34-23, .596) and Pac-10 (501-327, .605) action. He is currently ranked sixth among all active NCAA Division I coaches in victories and 12th on the all-time list among Division I coaches. Marquess became the 23rd coach in the history of NCAA Division I baseball to reach the 1000-win mark with a victory over Florida State on February 9, 2001. Just over two years later, he picked up win No. 1100 versus Nevada on February 17, 2003. He became the 16th NCAA Division I head baseball coach to win 1200 collegiate games just over another two years after that when the Cardinal defeated California at Sunken Diamond on March 5, 2005. He also won his 100th career postseason game in Stanford's NCAA Super Regional clinching victory over Long Beach State (June 7, 2003). The 1969 Stanford graduate has led the Cardinal to two CWS titles and three runner-up showings in five CWS championship appearances, as well as 13 College World Series trips, five NCAA Super Regional titles, 14 NCAA Regional championships and 12 Pac-10 crowns (includes Southern Division and shared titles). Stanford's two CWS championships under Marquess came in back-to-back fashion in 1987 and 1988 as the Cardinal is just one of four teams to have ever won back-to-back Division I College World Series titles. The three runner-up showings have all come this decade with the Cardinal taking second in Omaha in 2000, 2001 and 2003. Maybe even more amazing, all 13 teams that Marquess has taken to the College World Series have won at least one game. Stanford has qualified for the NCAA Championships 24 times in the first 30 seasons under Marquess with a current school record run of 13 straight appearances in postseason play. He has been named NCAA Coach of the Year three times and has received Pac-10 or Pac-10 Southern Division Coach of the Year honors on nine occasions, most recently with his Pac-10 selection in 2003. The Cardinal has also recorded 29 winning seasons in the first 30 campaigns under his leadership. His clubs have finished either first or second in the prestigious Pacific-10 (formerly Pac-10 Southern Division) 22 times in the last 26 seasons including 2006. Stanford has had 134 players drafted by professional baseball in the past 22 campaigns, including 18 in the last 20 years that were drafted either in the first round or as a Compensation A pick. Stanford has had more first round picks (6) since 2000 than any other school in the nation, most recently with the selection of Greg Reynolds as the No. 2 overall pick in 2006. A member of the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame, Marquess was the head coach of the 1988 United States Olympic baseball team that captured the gold medal. He was also an accomplished football and baseball standout on The Farm, and is a member of the Stanford Athletic Hall of Fame. He is one of only 10 people to have ever both played and coached in the College World Series. Marquess was the starting first baseman and a First Team All-American on Stanford's 1967 CWS squad and played four seasons in the minor leagues with the Chicago White Sox organization.
