Stanford Opens Cal State Fullerton Series With 12-5 Win
Feb. 29, 2008
Stanford, Calif. - Randy Molina (2-3, HR, 5 RBI) hit his first collegiate home run and drove in a career-high five runs to lead Stanford (4-2) to a 12-5 victory over Cal State Fullerton (3-2) in the opener of a three-game series at Klein Field at Sunken Diamond on Friday. Molina drove in all five of his runs in the first two innings as Stanford jumped out to an early 9-1 lead after two frames. The run support would be plenty for Stanford pitchers Jeremy Bleich (6.1 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 4 SO) and Austin Yount (2.2 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 4 SO) with Bleich picking up the win to improve to 2-0 on the season.
Stanford has now won 16 of the last 17 meetings between the teams played at Stanford and snapped a three-game losing streak against the Titans overall as Cal State Fullerton had swept the Cardinal in a three-game set in Fullerton a year ago.
Stanford and Cal State Fullerton continue their current series on Saturday and Sunday with start times each day scheduled for 1 pm, PT. Stanford is scheduled to go with RHP Erik Davis (0-1, 23.62) on the mound Saturday, while the Titans are slated to counter with RHP Cory Abriso (0-1, 1.50).
