Brodey’s late-game heroics help Stanford avoid sweep in Arizona

Stanford baseball saw its streak of four straight series wins come to an end in Tucson after losing two of three over the weekend to the Wildcats. Arizona (22-14, 7-8 Pac-12) pitching was able to shut down Stanford’s bats for two 4-1 victories before Stanford (19-11, 7-5) was finally able to mount a late rally in the finale to claim a dramatic come-from-behind 6-5 win to avoid the sweep.

Baseball splits whirlwind series at No. 23 Texas

There was a little bit of everything on Stanford baseball’s first road trip of the season — an extra-innings thriller, a comeback attempt falling just short and a few blowouts — but when all the dust cleared in Austin, the Cardinal (5-3) emerged from a four-game road series against No. 23 Texas (4-3) with a hard-earned series split thanks to a pair of stellar pitching performances in the first and last games of the series.
