Nine-Run Pacific Fifth Stops No. 17 Stanford, 10-6
March 21, 2008
Stanford, Calif. - A nine-run Pacific (5-14) fifth inning proved too much for No. 17 Stanford (8-5) to rebound from in a 10-6 loss to the Tigers at Klein Field at Sunken Diamond on a chilly Friday evening. Stanford answered with five runs of its own in the bottom of the fifth and loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth to get the tying run to the plate before Cole Akins struck out Zach Jones to end the game three hours and 31 minutes after the contest began.
Austin Yount (4-5, 2B) had the first four-hit game of his career for Stanford.
Stanford and Pacific continue the series with single games at Pacific on Saturday and Monday. Both contests in Stockton are scheduled to begin at 6 pm, PT. Stanford is scheduled to send RHP Erik Davis (1-1, 8.10) to the mound on Saturday versus Pacific RHP Mark McCain (1-0, 2.16).
