No. 2 Stanford fell to California, 18-2, to set up a rubber match in the three-game Pac-12 baseball series against California on Saturday at Evans Diamond.

"We took a pretty good punch today, but this wasn't a typical performance from us and I credit their offense for staying on top of us throughout," said Cardinal coach David Esquer. "It got away from us when we decided to save the front end of our bullpen for tomorrow, but this is the kind of adversity we need to learn to come back from. I've been in this conference for over 20 years. You can get a bloody lip from anyone in this league and Cal's performance today really proved that."

Stanford fell into a 15-0 hole after seven innings, allowing four runs in the first and third innings followed by a six-run sixth inning. Nick Oar and Austin Kretzschmar each had two hits off the bench, Christian Molfetta hit a pinch-hit home run in the ninth and Brandon Dieter retired all four batters he faced in his collegiate pitching debut.
