Stanford softball continued its torrid start to the 2014 season, going 5-0 against the competition at the Stanford Nike Invitational this weekend to maintain its unblemished record.
After dispatching its competition at the Kajikawa Classic with relative ease, the No. 14 Cardinal softball team will come home to play its first set of home games at Boyd and Jill Smith Family Stadium. The Cardinal moved to 6-0 on the season after outscoring its opponents 60-6 in six games in Tempe, Ariz., and the Card will look to continue its hot start when the Nike Invitational begins on Friday morning.
It didn’t take long for the Stanford softball team to wash away the bad taste of a walk-off loss to UC-Davis. The No. 8 Cardinal returned to the Farm for its first home games of the year and went 4-1 overall on the weekend, winning the Stanford Nike Invitational title.
