Inman And Stringer Pitch Stanford To Sixth Straight Win, 1-0 Over California
March 2, 2007
Stanford, Calif. - Jeffrey Inman and David Stringer combined on a three-hit shutout to lift Stanford (8-5) to its sixth straight win with a 1-0 victory over California (7-8) in the opener of a three-game non-conference series Friday at Sunken Diamond. Inman allowed just three hits and struck out a career-high nine in a 7.2 inning outing that was the longest of his career before Stringer recorded the final four outs for his fifth save in as many games. Adam Gaylord scored the only run of the game when he singled with one out in the Stanford third, moved to third on a Brendan Domaracki single and scored when Joey August beat out a potential inning-ending double play ball for an RBI fielder's choice.
Stanford and California continue their current series at Sunken Diamond on Saturday and Sunday with start times scheduled both days at 1 pm, PT. Stanford is slated start LHP Jeremy Bleich (1-1, 5.82) while California has yet to announce a pitcher. The Golden Bears are slated to go with RHP Alex Rollin (3-0, 3.98) on Sunday while the Cardinal's starter is still to be announced.
