Box Score

STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford used a seven-run third inning and lights-out pitching to hand San José State a 10-0 loss Tuesday night at Klein Field at Sunken Diamond.

The Spartans (10-22) were forced to settle for a season split with the Cardinal (18-9) after winning a 10-9 contest at Municipal Stadium on March 28.

Stanford, which entered with a 2.53 team ERA – the eighth-lowest in the country – looked the part Tuesday night. After the Spartans’ offense tallied double digit hits in each of its last three games, six Cardinal hurlers combined to hold it to just three on Tuesday.

The teams traded zeroes through two innings, but the Cardinal put up seven runs in the third inning before adding three more in the fifth.

San José State used seven pitchers on the night, none going more than one frame outside of Jake Sweich’s 2.2 innings. Eric Anderson (L, 0-1) was saddled with the loss after working the third inning that saw Stanford take a lead it would never return.

Ozzy Braff (1-3, triple) extended his reached-base streak to 20 games with a triple in the sixth inning. The three-bagger marked his team-high third of the year. David Campbell (1-3) and Joe Stefanki (1-4) joined him in the hit column.

San José State resumes Mountain West action this weekend when it hosts conference leader New Mexico in a weekend set.
