STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford looks to close out its fourth series win over Cal in the last five years Monday night at 6 p.m. at Klein Field at Sunken Diamond on Pac-12 Networks. The two teams have split the first two games of the series.
“This series has been really fun so far,” said freshman Tommy Edman, whose three-run homer lifted the Cardinal to a game two victory. “We played them earlier in the year but that was a midweek game, so it has been exciting to play a weekend series. It counts for the Pac-12 now, so these games have all been pretty fun.”
Edman takes a seven-game hitting streak into the game, as the Cardinal looks to get over .500 overall for the first time this season. Stanford can also move into a tie for seventh in the Pac-12 standings with a win, one game behind UCLA, which is next weekend’s opponent.
Freshman righty Brett Hanewich gets the start on the mound. Hanewich will look to duplicate the efforts of Sunday starter John Hochstatter, who provided a complete-game, five-hit victory.
“I think if we take this series tomorrow it would be big for us,” said Hochstatter after his second career complete game. “I think with this team and how we’re playing we can keep it going from here.”
Hochstatter’s outing has California hitting just .212 (12-55) in the series, while Stanford is batting .311 (23-74). However, the Cardinal has left 21 runners on base to Cal’s 10.
Ted Robinson and J.T. Snow have tonight’s call on all Pac-12 Networks.
