Series Notes: Stanford has won eight consecutive season series over the Bruins and needs just one more win in the current series to make it nine in a row • Five of the last seven games between the teams have been decided in the final inning, including last night's 3-2 Stanford victory in which the Cardinal scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth with John Hester's two-out double driving in John Mayberry, Jr. with the game-winning r un • The 2004 series was highlighted by Jonny Ash's two-run homer in the top of the ninth to defeat the Bruins in Saturday's game, 15-13, while UCLA took the series finale in dramatic fashion on a solo walkoff homer by Preston Griffin to leadoff the bottom of the ninth • In 2003, each team also had dramatic homers in extra innings to claim victory with UCLA's Brett McMillian clearing the bases with a grandslam in the top of the 12th to lead UCLA to a 9-5 victory in Saturday's contest, before the Cardinal clinched the outright Pac-10 title on Sunday when Donny Lucy's leadoff homer in the bottom of the 10th inning lifted the Cardinal to a thrilling 9-8 win • The Cardinal swept all six games from the Bruins in the last year of the Pac-10 Southern Division in 1998 • The last time the Bruins won both a series and a season-series against the Cardinal was when UCLA won four-of-six games between the teams in 1997, taking two-of-three at Stanford (April 19-20) before doing it again at UCLA (May 9-11)
