Stanford Wins Third Straight With 14-4 Victory At Santa Clara
May 15, 2007
Santa Clara, Calif. - Stanford (22-27) won its third straight game with a 14-4 non-conference victory over Santa Clara (25-29) on a chilly Tuesday evening at Stephen Schott Stadium. The victory helped the Cardinal avoid being swept by the Broncos in the season series between the clubs after Santa Clara had won the first three meetings of 2007.
David Stringer (1-2) earned his first victory of the campaign by pitching a career-high 7.0 innings without giving up an earned run in an outstanding relief outing. Stringer scattered seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts.
'I was happy that I was able to go out there and keep my team in the game,' said Stringer.
Brendan Domaracki (2-3, HR, 3 RBI) and Michael Taylor homered for the Cardinal, while Stanford's bottom third of the starting lineup - Ryan Seawell (3-4, 2 RBI, SB), Cord Phelps (2-3, RBI) and Brian Juhl (2-5, 2 2B, 3 RBI) - combined to go 7-for-12 with five RBI.
'This was a great game for us in a lot of areas,' said Stanford head coach Mark Marquess. 'We obviously got a great pitching performance from David Stringer, but we also had excellent production from just about everywhere in our lineup.'
Stanford will return to Sunken Diamond for the opener of a three-game non-conference series versus Pacific (13-40) this Friday, May 18 (6 pm, PT) with the annual Town & Country Fireworks Show scheduled to take place after the contest. The series will continue at Pacific on Saturday (3 pm, PT), before returning to Sunken Diamond for the series finale and Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday (1 pm, PT).
