TUCSON, Ariz. -- Junior lefty John Hochstatter gets the start Saturday against Arizona in hopes of extended his 17.2 scoreless innings streak and more importantly helping the Cardinal bounce back from a game one loss. Arizona took the opener, 3-2, in 10 innings behind single runs in the ninth and tenth innings Friday night at Hi Corbett Field.

Hochstatter has been dazzling of late, throwing two straight complete games in Pac-12 play. Since joining the starting rotation April 13, he has gone a perfect 4-0, while throwing seven or more innings in every start.

The Cardinal would take a duplicated outing of Friday night starter Cal Quantrill, who went 7.2 innings and allowed just one run on four hits. Quantrill left with a 2-1 lead, but it turned into a no-decision when the Wildcats came back for the victory.

Stanford is facing a 1-0 hole in a three-game series for the second straight weekend. Last week, the Cardinal also lost a disappointing Friday night contest when scoring only two runs, but stormed back for five runs in each of the next two games to take the series at UCLA.  

Cody Hamlin will start for Arizona, which is looking for its first series win since taking two of three from the Bruins April 11-13. Hamlin has not won since throwing a complete-game five-hitter in a 3-2 victory in game two of that series. 

Game two of series have been kind to Stanford of late, as the Cardinal has won each of its last two to set up series-deciding game threes. A Sunday rubber match is now the ideal situation ahead of the Cardinal. Arizona will send Tyger Talley (1-2, 3.75) to the hill Sunday. Stanford has yet to announce its starter for the finale Sunday at noon.
