Stanford Stuns No. 5 Cal State Fullerton, 6-5, In Another Dramatic Win

Feb. 4, 2006

Box Score

Stanford, Calif. - Stanford (2-0) stunned No. 5 Cal State Fullerton (0-2) with its second dramatic win in as many days as John Hester was balked home by Titan reliever Bryan Harris with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Cardinal a 6-5 victory at Sunken Diamond on Saturday. Austin Yount, the nephew of Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Robin Yount, was the hitting hero as the freshman blasted his first collegiate home run and drove in three to go with a triple in his 2-for-4 effort. Sean Ratliff earned the victory in his first collegiate appearances on the mound, allowing just one hit and striking out six over the final 3.2 innings of the contest.

Stanford, who started the season unranked for the first time since the Baseball America poll began in 1981, will go for a sweep of Cal State Fullerton on Sunday (1 pm, PT). The Cardinal is scheduled to pitch RHP Matt Leva, while the Titans will counter with RHP Lauren Gagnier.

A full recap will follow.
