Cardinal enjoys hit parade in Pac-12 victory over Wildcats


Austin Slater recorded three hits and drove in three runs as the Stanford baseball team accumulated a season-high 20 hits en route to a 10-6 victory over host Arizona on Saturday in Pac-12 Conference action.

Danny Diekroeger, Alex Blandino and Zach Hoffpauir each added three hits to help give Stanford its most hits since a 23-hit, 19-6 win against California on April 9, 2012.

The Cardinal (10-13, 23-21) look to win the series Sunday when the teams square off at noon.

Every Stanford player in the starting lineup had at least one hit. Wayne Taylor and Brett Michael Doran each picked up two in the eighth and ninth spots in the order, respectively. Taylor also contributed an RBI triple.

Starting pitcher John Hochstatter was the beneficiary of the outburst, although he needed little support early.

The junior lefty allowed only four hits through the first eight innings, while the Cardinal was cruising to a 10-3 lead.

Hochstatter won his fifth straight decision, pitching 8 2/3 innings and allowing four earned runs on eight hits. His consecutive innings without an earned run reached 21 before Arizona scored an earned run in the fourth.
