Box Score

Stockton, Calif. - No. 12 Stanford (12-7) returned to the field after a 13-day hiatus with a 9-6 victory over Pacific (10-14) in a non-conference game at Billy Hebert Field on Sunday. Jeff Gilmore (3-1) picked up the victory after coming on in relief of starter Mark Romanczuk to begin the third inning. After allowing three runs to the Tigers in his first inning on the hill, Gilmore (season-high-tying 7.0 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 SO) shut Pacific out the rest of the way to allow the Cardinal to rally from a 6-3 deficit at end of three innings. Jed Lowrie's team-leading eighth homer of the year was a three-run shot that capped a four-run Stanford fourth inning that put the Cardinal back on top to stay.

Jim Rapoport (3-5, RBI, SB) tied a career-high with three hits for the Cardinal, while John Mayberry, Jr. (2-4, 2 RBI) and John Hester (2-4, RBI) added a pair of hits each.

Justin Baum had a three-run homer off Gilmore in the third inning to score all three Tigers' runs in the frame for his ninth long ball of the season. Jerin Harper (2-3) and Will Brindza (2-3) added two hits each for Pacific.

Matthew Pena (0-1), the second of four Pacific pitchers, took the loss. Pena (0.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB) entered the game with one out in the Cardinal fourth and allowed Lowrie's home run two batters later.

A full recap will follow.
