Postseason hopes dim with series defeat in Utah

With the season winding down and the postseason approaching, Stanford baseball (25-21, 11-13 Pac-12) dropped a key series against Utah (20-25, 15-9) this weekend. Despite securing a win on Saturday, the Cardinal pitchers were unable to stymie the Utes’ hot bats and surrendered 19 runs across three games. After splitting the first two games, Stanford dropped the rubber match, resulting in its second-ever series loss to Utah.

Although a rainout on Friday night delayed the start of Stanford baseball’s 2016 campaign by a day, the Cardinal didn’t let the change of schedule throw them off. Stanford (2-1) swept its season-opening doubleheader on Saturday, 2-0, 2-1, before falling in Sunday’s series finale 4-3 to No. 21 Cal State Fullerton (1-2) to get its season started on a high note.
