Baseball Squad Falls to Cardinal, 6-5

Beinbrink, Phelps lead Sun Devils with two hits apiece.

March 10, 1999

STANFORD, Calif. - Junior Eric Bruntlett's RBI single with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning gave No. 6 Stanford (14-6, 2-0) a 6-5 win over No. 8 Arizona State (19-7, 0-2) on Saturday afternoon at Sunken Diamond.

After there were two outs and nobody on in the bottom of the 10th, the Cardinal's 7-8-9 hitters came through with consecutive singles to give Stanford its second straight Pac-10 victory. Junior Edmund Muth started the rally with a base hit to center, and moved to second on pinch-hitter Joe Savig's single to left. Bruntlett then lined a 1-0 pitch up the middle to score Muth with the game-winning run.

The Cardinal appeared headed to an easy victory as it carried a 5-1 lead into the eighth. Stanford scored twice in the first and three times in the third on Nick Day's three-run home run to left field.

The Sun Devils answered back with two runs in both the eighth and ninth innings. Arizona State cut it to 5-3 on a sacrifice fly and a wild pitch in the eighth, and scored the two in the ninth on just one hit and two Cardinal errors. Sophomore Jeff Phelps (Yuma, AZ/Kofa HS) tied the game at 5-5 with a one-out RBI single to right. Stanford reliever Tony Cogan improved to 1-1 after not allowing an earned run in 3.0 innings of relief. Junior catcher Damien Alvarado led the Cardinal with three hits.

Senior Andrew Beinbrink (San Diego, CA/Scripps Ranch HS) and Phelps led the Sun Devils with two hits apiece.

The Pac-10 series wraps up on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Sunken Diamond.
