Stanford feels the heat as Arizona completes baseball sweep


Stanford's Beau Branton, Tommy Edman and Quinn Brodey had the only hits against Arizona's Tyger Talley, who pitched his first career shutout to lead the Wildcats to a 6-0 victory over the host Cardinal in Pac-12 action Sunday. The Wildcats swept Stanford at Sunken Diamond for the first time ever.

Stanford (9-11, 0-3 Pac-12) was blanked at home for the first time since Santa Clara won 3-0 May 14, 2013, as Talley (3-0) allowed just six Cardinal to reach base. The right-hander threw a three-hitter with contributing knocks. Edman's double in the third was the only Stanford hit that went for extra bases.

San Diego visits Klein Field at Sunken Diamond on Monday for a 1 p.m. nonconference showdown. The game will be aired live on Pac-12 Networks.


Kayla Bonstrom hit a three-run homer and also drove in another run but host Orgon State rallied to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh and win it in the bottom of the eighth, beating Stanford, 7-6, in Pac-12 action Sunday.

The Cardinal (0-2 Pac-12, 14-16 overall) hopes to salvage a win out of the series when the two tams meet Monday at 4:30 p.m.

Betsy Noll and Hannah Winter also drove in runs for Stanford, which has dropped four of five and six of eight overall.


Stanford finished third at the Graham Hill coed team race in Annapolis on Sunday, compiling a 13-5 record to finish just behind College of the Charleston (16-2) and Boston College (15-3).

The Cardinal was led by skippers Will La Dow, Hans Henken and Kiernan Chung and crew members Samantha Steele, Nicolette Obel and Haley Kirk.

In Maryland, Stanford finished eighth at the St. Mary's Women's Regatta.
