2008 Stanford Baseball Team Beats Alumni, 10-3

Oct. 14, 2007

Stanford, Calif. - The 2008 Stanford Baseball team rolled to a 10-3 victory over a group of former Stanford players in the 2007 Alumni Game played on a beautiful afternoon at Sunken Diamond on Sunday. Kellen McColl, Steven Swinford and Adam Gaylord all homered for the Cardinal. Joe Borchard, who spent most of the 2007 campaign with the Florida Marlins, highlighted the Alumni effort with a long solo homer estimated at 500 feet in his only at bat of the game in the top of the fourth.

Gaylord (2-2, 2B, HR, 3 RBI) and Jonathan Kaskow (2-2) had two hits each for Stanford.

The Alumni held a 3-2 lead before McColl connected on a two-run blast in the bottom of the fifth that put the Cardinal ahead to stay.

Gaylord had a two-run double to drive in two more runs in the sixth.

An RBI double by Michael Marshall preceded back-to-back homers by Swinford and Gaylord to close out the scoring in a four-run Cardinal eighth.

Stanford scored twice in the bottom of the first on an RBI triple from Sean Ratliff and an RBI groundout by Jason Castro to erase an early 1-0 Alumni lead after Bill Worden (1981) and John Gall (2000) stroked back-to-back doubles in the top of the first frame.

The Alumni tied the game at 2-2 on Borchard's solo shot that landed near the Avery Aquatic Center pool well beyond the rightcenter field fence and went ahead, 3-2, on David O'Hagan's fifth inning RBI single.

Carey Schwartz picked up the win despite allowing both Borchard's homer and the run-scoring single by O'Hagan. Rex Petrill pitched 3.0 scoreless one-hit innings to earn the save.

Alumni reliever Mario Iglesias surrendered McColl's two-run homer and was charged with the loss.

Gall (2-2, 2B, RBI) and Bill Worden (2-3) had multiple-hit games for the Alumni, who equaled Stanford's 11 hits.

'This event is always so much fun,' said Stanford head coach Mark Mars, who will begin his 32nd season as the team's head coach in 2008. 'It was a great turnout of Alumni this year. We just want to thank them for all they have done for Stanford Baseball. Today is a great day to do that.'
