Softball opens play at home with 2-1 record in Nike Invitational

After inclement weather led to the cancellation of Friday’s games, Stanford softball (7-3) opened its home slate by hosting the Nike Invitational this Saturday and Sunday, facing off against Omaha (3-5), UC Santa Barbara (3-5) and Pacific (3-5). The Cardinal got off to a slow start, dropping their first game against Omaha 2-3, but they bounced back quickly, routing UC Santa Barbara 16-2 later that night and beating Pacific 8-1 the following morning.
