Tawa lifts Cardinal with three-run homer in the ninth

With one swing of the bat, sophomore shortstop Tim Tawa flipped the narrative on Saturday’s game, sending No. 4 Stanford (41-11, 22-7 Pac-12) to a joyous 3-2 win on the final day of the season.

In a must-win contest, the Cardinal took on the Arizona State Sun Devils (11-5, 2-2) on Saturday afternoon, and powered through to claim a 85-71 upset victory. With their first win in the Pac-12 coming in such a dominant fashion, the Cardinal men proved that despite their slow start, they are a legitimate force in the conference.
