Remarkable season is more than just winning Pac-12

It has been 14 years since No. 3 Stanford baseball (43-8, 21-6 Pac-12) were crowned Pac-12 Championships. Back then, would-be MLB players Jed Lowrie and Sam Fuld roamed sunkissed lawn of Sunken Diamond.

14 years of coming up short in the regular season. All those ghosts on the diamond who tried their damndest to win a conference title can be appeased when the Cardinal travel to the Evergreen State to play Washington (28-22, 18-9) in their final series of the season.

No. 2 Stanford baseball powers through Bears

No. 2 Stanford baseball (33-6, 14-4 Pac-12) kept chugging along this weekend as it took the three-games series Cal (24-17, 10-11) in Sunken Diamond. The rivalry battle had a little bit more nuance than in previous matchups. Stanford head coach David Esquer coached at Cal for 17 years before jumping onto the Farm after former head coach Mark Marquess retired at the end of last season.
