The No. 1 Stanford baseball team dropped its first decision of the season in last Friday’s series opener against Fresno State, but bounced back with two decisive wins to grab its third straight series win.
After a dominant three-game sweep of then-No. 10 Vanderbilt and a surprisingly close escape from Pacific on Tuesday, the Stanford baseball team will need to bring its A-game to Sunken Diamond again this weekend against No. 12 Texas. The No. 2 Cardinal (4-0) and the Longhorns (2-2) are each looking to bounce back from disappointing midweek performances. Texas fell to unranked UT-Arlington 7-5 at home Tuesday, while Stanford needed an 11th-inning home run from junior third baseman Stephen Piscotty to knock off winless Pacific in Stockton by the score of 9-7.
