Berkeley, Calif. -
Stanford (16-19, 2-9 Pac-10) came out on top in a 4-3 emotional thriller over California (20-20, 4-7 Pac-10) at Evans Diamond on Saturday to even a three-game series between the clubs. The Cardinal scored twice in the top of the seventh to take a 3-2 lead and then came back with the winning run in the top of the eighth after California had scored a run in the bottom of the seventh to tie the score at 3-3. Brian Juhl provided a clutch two-out RBI single to score Adam Sorgi with the game-winning run.
Stanford and California will play the rubber game of the three-game series on Sunday (1 pm, PT) with the Cardinal looking to win a series in Berkeley for the first time since 2004. Neither team has announced a probable starting pitcher for Sunday's series finale.
Stanford will return to Sunken Diamond to begin a six-game homestand by hosting San Jose State in a non-conference contest on Tuesday, April 24 (6 pm, PT). The homestand will continue with a three-game conference series against defending College World Series champion Oregon State (Friday-Sunday, April 27-29, 7 pm, 1 pm, 1 pm, PT) before concluding with another contest against Santa Clara on Tuesday, May 1 (6 pm, PT). The first two games of the Oregon State series will be televised live by Fox Sports Net and CSTV, respectively.
