USC Evens Series With 16-7 Win Over No. 16 Stanford
March 11, 2006
Los Angeles, Calif. - USC scored six runs in the bottom of the second and never looked back in a 16-7 victory over No. 16 Stanford (11-6) to even a three-game non-conference series between the clubs Saturday at Dedeaux Field. Daniel Perales (5-5, 2 2B, HR, 4 RBI) and Johnny Bowden (3-4, 2 2B, 5 RBI) had huge offensive days to lead a 20-hit Trojan attack that gave USC starter Ryan Cook (1-2) plenty of support in his first collegiate victory.
Randy Molina (4-4, 2B, RBI) had a career-high four hits for Stanford.
The teams will play the rubber game of the series on Sunday (1 pm, PT). USC is scheduled to start LHP Tommy Milone (4.0, 4.50), while the Cardinal has yet to announce a probable starting pitcher for the contest.
A full recap will follow.
