Beck, Hoerner lead Cardinal to win on Opening Day

Junior pitcher Tristan Beck missed all of the 2017 season after leading the team in ERA (2.48) as a freshman. Beck certainly didn’t look like a guy who hasn’t played in 20 months on today’s Opening Day.

No. 13 Stanford baseball (1-0) gets the 5-1 win against No. 17 Cal State Fullerton (0-1) on the strength of Beck’s pitching, defense and junior shortstop Nico Hoerner’s offense on a cold Friday night at Sunken Diamond.

Cal denies baseball road sweep

After taking the first two games in Berkeley, No. 10 Stanford baseball (33-14, 15-9 Pac-12) fell short of the sweep as the Cardinal dropped the final contest of it three-game series against Cal (22-26, 13-14). Unable to climb back from a 3-0 deficit, Stanford ultimately fell 5-3.

Baseball takes second consecutive series sweep against Arizona

Senior Chris Castellanos pitched a gem to help No. 18 Stanford baseball (27-12, 11-7 Pac-12) sweep No. 13 Arizona (27-15, 9-12) in a three-game series over the weekend at the Sunken Diamond. The sweep marked the second consecutive series sweep for the Cardinal, and their first over Arizona since 1999. Additionally, Stanford pushed its win streak to eight games – its longest since 2013.
