Baseball: Card prepares to tussle with No. 12 Texas

After a dominant three-game sweep of then-No. 10 Vanderbilt and a surprisingly close escape from Pacific on Tuesday, the Stanford baseball team will need to bring its A-game to Sunken Diamond again this weekend against No. 12 Texas. The No. 2 Cardinal (4-0) and the Longhorns (2-2) are each looking to bounce back from disappointing midweek performances. Texas fell to unranked UT-Arlington 7-5 at home Tuesday, while Stanford needed an 11th-inning home run from junior third baseman Stephen Piscotty to knock off winless Pacific in Stockton by the score of 9-7.
