Stanford, Calif. -
Action from Saturday's doubleheader between Stanford (0-3) and Fresno State (1-3) at Sunken Diamond was suspended due to weather conditions after four complete innings of the first game with Stanford leading 6-1. Saturday's suspended contest will be resumed on Sunday (1 pm, PT) prior to the day's regularly scheduled game. The finale of the three-game set has been rescheduled for Wednesday, April 25 (TBA).
The first home series of Stanford's 2007 season was originally slated to begin on Friday but weather forced the opener back to Saturday's scheduled doubleheader. The suspension of Saturday's first game marks the second date on Stanford's schedule that has been altered this season due to weather conditions.
Toby Gerhart highlighted the action that did take place on Saturday when he drilled his first collegiate home run with a three-run long and high blast over the rightcenter field wall with two outs to cap a four-run Cardinal third. The Cardinal already had one run in before Gerhart's homer when Brian Juhl singled, moved to second on a groundout and scored on Adam Gaylord's RBI single up the middle. Cord Phelps then walked to set Gerhart's heroics.
The Cardinal erased an early 1-0 deficit with a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the first. The Cardinal had runners on first and second after back-to-back one-out singles from Sean Ratliff and Michael Taylor but Fresno State seemed to be out of the inning before Erik Wetzel failed to come up with Juhl's groundball hit to the Bulldog second baseman, allowing Ratliff to tie the game. Austin Yount followed with an RBI single to plate Taylor and put the Cardinal ahead.
Fresno State got on the scoreboard first on Saturday when Loren Storey led off the game with a single, stole second, moved to third on a balk and scored on Steve Susdorf's RBI sacrifice bunt.
Nolan Gallagher held Fresno State to one run on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 4.0 innings, while Fresno State starter Brandon Miller was touched for six runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 3.0 frames.
