Baseball: Sandbrink leads Cardinal pitchers to four-hit win

On a beautiful night at Sunken Diamond—a pleasant change from snowy Washington—senior starter Danny Sandbrink paced the Cardinal (14-7, 2-1 Pac-10), tossing four no-hit innings and striking out two. The Spartans (19-9) did not reach base until a leadoff walk in the fourth and didn’t record their first hit until the sixth.

With his patented “funk” pitch—a sinker with unpredictable movement—dancing all over the strike zone, Sandbrink never let San Jose State get comfortable at the plate.

Baseball: Stanford survives six errors, two comebacks to beat St. Mary’s 16-14

On a chilly night, the No. 11 Cardinal scored early and often, but struggled to keep the Gaels (9-12) off the bases. Stanford racked up 19 hits and committed 6 errors in a wacky game at Sunken Diamond.
