Stanford (11-4 Pac-10) currently holds a slim one-half game lead in the Pac-10 standings over Washington (12-6 Pac-10), who handed the Cardinal its first series loss of the season by taking two-of-three games in Seattle last Friday-Sunday.
The Cardinal will return home for four home games next week, hosting San Francisco in its final regular season non-conference game of the season on Tuesday, May 18 (6 pm, PDT) before welcoming USC for a three-game Pac-10 series Friday-Sunday, May 21-23 (6 pm, 1 pm, 1 pm, PDT).
