No. 10 Stanford Scores Twice In The Ninth To Beat Oregon State, 6-4
April 12, 2008
Corvallis, Ore. - No. 10 Stanford (16-11-1, 5-3 Pac-10) scored twice in the top of the ninth inning and Erik Davis pitched his third straight complete game in a 6-4 victory Saturday over Oregon State (16-11, 4-4 Pac-10) that equaled a three-game Pac-10 set between the teams at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field. Cord Phelps (3-5, HR, 3 RBI) was the offensive star of the day for the Cardinal, driving in a run in each of his final three at bats including a ninth inning RBI single to score Jeff Whitlow with the game-winner.
The Stanford win set up a rubber game on Sunday (1 pm, PT) to decide the series. Stanford is 5-0 in rubber games in 2008 and has also posted a perfect record with a 6-0 mark in three-game set finales. Neither team has announced a probable starting pitcher for the contest.
