Stewart a driving force in Stanford baseball win


Jake Stewart had three hits, including a pair of doubles, and drove in four runs in helping the Stanford baseball team beat visiting California, 9-5, in a nonconference contest Monday night in Sunken Diamond.

Stephen Piscotty added two hits and drive in two runs for the 21st-ranked Cardinal (20-13), which has won four of its past five games after losing five of its previous six.

Stanford travels to St. Mary's for a nonconference game Tuesday at 3 p.m. before traveling to No. 7 Arizona State for a three-game Pac-10 series beginning Friday.

Brian Busick, who threw three scoreless innings, got credit for the victory, his first of the year. Busick gave up three hits and struck out three in his just his third outing.

Zach Jones added two hits and is 22-for-65 over his past 18 games (.338) after hitting .128 through March 25.

Dave Guliani also had two hits for Stanford, improving his season average to .333.
