Baseball opens season against Cal State Fullerton

No. 13 Stanford baseball (0-0) opens the doors of Sunken Diamond for the first time this year when No. 17 Cal State Fullerton (0-0) comes to town on Friday night in a three-game series.

Beck will be the Opening Day Starter on Friday. He will make his season debut after missing all of last season due to a stress fracture in his back. His freshman season was impressive as he earned All-Pac-12 First Team and led the team in ERA (2.48).

Beck, Castellanos, bullpen shine as pitching powers Stanford to series win over Fullerton

Although a rainout on Friday night delayed the start of Stanford baseball’s 2016 campaign by a day, the Cardinal didn’t let the change of schedule throw them off. Stanford (2-1) swept its season-opening doubleheader on Saturday, 2-0, 2-1, before falling in Sunday’s series finale 4-3 to No. 21 Cal State Fullerton (1-2) to get its season started on a high note.
