            TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The Stanford baseball team rapped out 16 hits on the night and scored three runs in the sixth and two in the seventh to pull off a come-from-behind, 10-6 win over Arizona in a three-game Pac-10 series opener at Kindall Field on Friday.


The loss, UA’s fourth straight, dropped the Wildcats to 15-20 on the year and to 3-7 in the Pac-10. Stanford improved to 17-15 overall and even in the conference standings with Arizona with its second straight victory.


Trailing 6-5 after five innings, the Cardinal tied the game in the top of the sixth on a run-scoring double by Ryan Seawell, and took the lead for good on RBI-base hits later in the inning by Jim Rapoport and Chris Lewis for a 7-5 edge.


The Cardinal then added two more runs on a solo home run by Brent Milleville to lead off the top of the seventh, his second of the year, and a Chris Minaker RBI-double two outs later for a four-run advantage.


Seawell and Milleville paced the Cardinal offense, finishing with three hits each. Seawell added a pair of RBI and two runs scored, while Milleville chipped in with a RBI and a pair of runs scored in the win.


The late Cardinal rally made winner out of starter Greg Reynolds, who improved to 3-3 on the year. The right-hander surrendered six runs, four earned, on seven hits over six innings. He struck out seven and walked two on the night.


Reliever David Stringer picked up his first save of the year, working a scoreless final three innings.


UA starter Preston Guilmet (2-5) was charged with the loss after giving up eight runs, seven earned, on 13 hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked one on the night.


The Cardinal jumped out to an early 5-2 lead, scoring four in the second and answering UA’s two runs in the bottom of the frame with one of its own in the top of the third for a three-run edge.


Arizona punched back to tie the game at 5-5 on two-run homer by freshman Brad Glenn in bottom of the fourth, his team-leading fifth HR of the year, and a RBI-ground out by classmate David Plante in the fifth.


Senior Brad Boyer handed Arizona its ill-fated lead immediately following Plante’s fifth-inning ground out with a straight steal of home off of Reynolds for a 6-5 edge.


Arizona and Stanford will meet up for the second game of the series on Saturday at 6 p.m. Left-hander Brad Mills will start on the mound for the Wildcats in a game that can be heard live on 1290 AM.
