A freshman came through with the biggest hit of his young career, and a veteran junior later delivered a walk-off single to give the University of Arizona baseball team a 3-2 victory over Stanford in 10 innings before a crowd of 3,082 on Friday night at Hi Corbett Field. Arizona trailed by a run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth when freshman designated hitter Michael Hoard, who was hitless with three strikeouts in his previous at-bats, knocked home Trent Gilbert with a single to send the game to extra innings. In the 10th inning, Gilbert came to bat with one out and runners at first and second. The junior second baseman slapped a line drive down the left field line, sending home Kevin Newman with the decisive run. Gilbert finished 4-for-5 with the game-tying run and game-winning RBI.
The Stanford University baseball team rapped out a season-high 20 base hits to give pitcher John Hochstatter plenty of run support as the Cardinal downed Arizona, 10-6, to even a three-game series on a breezy Saturday evening at Hi Corbett Field. It was a back-and-forth tilt that saw Arizona in front by a run after the fourth, but the Cardinal asserted itself in the middle innings. A three-run fifth inning gave Stanford the lead for good, and it tacked on four runs in the sixth and another in the ninth for good measure. The 10 runs were more than enough to provide breathing room for Hochstatter (W, 8-1), who came one out shy in his bid for a complete game. His only major trouble of the night came in the ninth inning when he surrendered three runs on five hits.
