Arizona baseball continues Cinderella streak, run rules Stanford in Pac-12 Tournament
Arizona baseball is still dancing at the Pac-12 Baseball Tournament, rolling past top-seeded Stanford in dominant fashion Friday evening.
The Wildcats wasted no time jumping on the Cardinal, scoring 8 runs in the top of the 2nd to after Stanford’s Tommy Troy hit a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 1st. Mason White homered for Arizona in the 8-run frame while Tommy Splaine doubled and singled during the rally.
Stanford would push 1 run across in the 3rd inning but it was the top of the 5th that allowed the Wildcats to cement their dominant victory. With the bases loaded, Chase Davis drilled a grand slam to remove any doubt about the final outcome.
When it was all said and done, Arizona ended the game with a 14-4 run-rule victory in 7 innings.
