Live Game Coverage: Audio Broadcast | Gametracker

All-Time Series (since 1959): Stanford 44-6-1
2005 Results: Series - Stanford 2-1 (at Pacific, March 20) Stanford 9-6; (at Pacific, March 24, 29) Stanford 6-1, Pacific 2-0 (10 inn.)
Series Notes: Stanford had won 14 straight home games (and had a 15-0-1 record over the previous 16 games) before broke the streak with a 2-0 victory over the Cardinal in 10 innings the last time the teams played on March 29, 2005 ... Stanford and Pacific had played just once since 1995 before meeting three times in 2005 with the Cardinal winning the first two games before Pacific captured the third to break its dry spell at Sunken Diamond that dated back to a Tiger win on February 8, 1977 (the first year of current Stanford head coach Mark Marquess' 30 years on the job)

• SCHEDULE CHANGES - Stanford will now host Pacific at Sunken Diamond on Monday night (6 pm, PT) ... Stanford was scheduled to play at Santa Clara on Monday but the Broncos had a West Conference game at Gonzaga scheduled for Sunday postponed to Monday due to weather, causing them to cancel the contest scheduled between the Broncos and the Cardinal at Stephen Schott Stadium ... The cancellation allowed the Cardinal to schedule Monday night's game against Pacific

• BUSY STRETCH - Stanford's game versus Pacific on Monday is the second game in an 11-day stretch that the Cardinal is scheduled to play eight games

• RETURN TO THE PAC - Stanford next returns to Pac-10 action with a three-game series at Oregon State this Thursday-Saturday, April 13-15 (5 pm, 5 pm, 12 pm) ... The Cardinal is in an unfamiliar spot in the Pac-10 standings, tied for last with Arizona and 3.5 games behind league-leader USC's 7-2 mark

• WINNING THE CLOSE ONES - Stanford has a 5-3 record in one-run games this season and is 2-1 in extra inning contests

• COMEBACK KIDS - Stanford has come from behind in eight of its 14 wins, including its biggest comeback of the year in the opener of a doubleheader versus USC on April 1 when the Cardinal scored the final seven runs after trailing 7-2 heading into the bottom of the sixth

• THREE-SERIES LOSING STREAK - Stanford's current stretch of three straight series losses is its most since Stanford also dropped three in a row versus Cal State Fullerton, Fresno State and Santa Clara from February 3-20, 1995

• SOGGY SEASON - Stanford has had 10 changes to its schedule due to soggy weather this season but is still on track to get in the maximum number of 56 regular season contests

• NO MORE SCORING DROUGHT - Stanford scored just one run in a 23-inning stretch through the first two innings of its game versus San Jose State last Saturday but tallied 13 in the final seven frames versus the Spartans

• SEASON SUMMARY - Stanford started the season with a three-game sweep of then No. 5 Cal State Fullerton (2/3-5), before dropping two-of-three to Kansas (2/10-12), taking two-of-three against then No. 7 Texas (2/18-20) and at Fresno State (2/24-26), splitting a weather-shortened two-game set at California (3/3-4), then dropping two-of-three at USC (3/10-12), versus Washington State (3/25-27), and then in a Pac-10 rematch versus USC (4/1-2) ... The Cardinal has won single games against Nevada (2/21) and at San Jose State (4/8)

• BEATING THE BEST, TROUBLE WITH THE REST - Stanford is 5-1 against ranked teams but just 9-10 against unranked opponents (according to Baseball America at the time of the games)

• OUT OF THE POLLS - Stanford has not been ranked in any of the five major national polls (Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball, NCBWA, Rosenblatt Report, USA Today) for the last three weeks
