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).

2018 Stanford baseball season preview: Pitching staff

Stanford baseball had a magical season in head coach Mark Marquess’ final year on the Farm. After starting a rather pedestrian 19-12, the Cardinal won 21 of their next 23 games. Much of this terrific run was spurred on by great pitching. A starting rotation of Chris Castellanos, Andrew Summerville and Kris Bubic — with Erik Miller as the Tuesday starter — made the job of the offense a lot easier. The pitching staff as a whole ranked second in the Pac-12 with a 3.35 ERA.

Baseball sweeps Washington State in regular season finale

No. 9 Stanford baseball (40-14, 21-9 Pac-12) left no doubts as to why it is the hottest team in the country, sweeping Washington State (24-29, 10-20) and outscoring the Cougars 33-6 in its final regular season series. With the win, the Cardinal secured a 40-win season, marking the 21st time that a Stanford team has reached this milestone during the 41-year tenure of head coach Mark Marquess.
