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.
