After extending its win streak to 12 games last week, the Stanford football team hosts Colorado this Saturday with a chance to stretch the streak to lucky number 13.
If you went looking for running back Anthony Wilkerson in the waning moments of Stanford’s close win over Arizona State last November, you’d find him taking a seat.
He wasn’t injured or surrounded by training staff. Nor was he in the stands to watch the action after the Cardinal went ahead 17-13 with just minutes to play. Instead, he was inbounds on the Sun Devils’ 4-yard line, with the ball in his hands and not a defender in sight.
The Cardinal (27-16, 9-9 Pac-10) clobbered the Aggie pitching staff for 14 hits and got a solid starting performance from sophomore righty Dean McArdle, who extended his record to 7-2 by holding the Aggies (14-26) to just three earned runs in 6.1 innings.
The No. 25 Cardinal scored early and often and held Pacific to one run over the final seven innings in an 11-5 victory
Kenny Diekroeger homered, Lonnie Kauppila had three RBI and the Stanford offense showed signs of life as the Cardinal got a much-needed win Tuesday, a 10-3 victory at Santa Clara.
