Highlighting those in attendance was Nationals reliever Drew Storen, as well as a host of other current and former professional players. The friendly games were well-played throughout, with the alumni contributing a solid defensive effort and seven hits in the second contest.
Junior Alex Blandino gave the Cardinal an early 1-0 lead on a towering home run to left field and Stanford cruised from there. The current players put up 11 hits en route to a 9-0 lead, before the alumni got on the board in the ninth. Brendan Domaracki scored the lone for the visitors after doubling and later forcing a balk while on third base.
