Stanford softball sweeps OSU

Cardinal women tied for first place after first day of Pac-10 golf championships

Teagan Gerhart pitched a six-hitter and the Stanford softball team completed a three-game sweep of visiting Oregon State, beating the Beavers, 3-1, Sunday in a Pac-10 contest.

Danielle Miller had two hits and drove in two runs for the Cardinal (5-4, 30-8), which travels to Pacific for a nonconference game Tuesday night.

Gerhart did not allow an earned run, nor walk a batter, and struck out seven as she won her 16th game in 22 decisions. She retired 12 of the final 13 batters she faced.

Miller singled home runs in the first and fourth innings. Jenna Rich also drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the first.
