STANFORD, Calif.- No. 7 Stanford blanked No. 72 Oregon 7-0 on Saturday afternoon at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium, posting its third four-match winning streak of the year in the process.

Stanford swept all three doubles matches to take an early 1-0 lead over Oregon (12-10, 0-5 Pac-10).

Alex Clayton was first off the court in singles, notching a 6-3, 6-3 win over Marcos Verdasco at the No. 2 spot for a 2-0 lead.

Getting the start at the No. 3 position on Senior Day, Richard Wire followed with a 6-3, 6-3 triumph over Ric Mortera to put the Cardinal ahead 3-0.

Bradley Klahn clinched the match with a 7-6 (2), 6-2 victory over Alexander Cornelissen in a battle of No. 1 players.

Wire and fellow senior Paul Morrissey were honored before and after the match with tributes highlighting their careers. Morrissey served as the team's honorary volunteer assistant coach for Saturday's contest.
