Stanford Sweeps Sun Devils

STANFORD, Calif. – Andrew Daschbach hit his second home run in as many days and #2 Stanford once again came from behind to defeat Arizona State, 10-3, on Sunday at Sunken Diamond.

"We love the response coming back home this week and getting some quality wins against a solid Pac-12 team," said Clarke and Elizabeth Nelson Director of Baseball David Esquer. "The theme of guys stepping up on any given weekend continued with players like Alec Wilson, Christian Robinson and Matt Decker really coming up huge this weekend."

The Cardinal (27-5 overall, 9-3 Pac-12) scored 10 runs following Arizona State's two-run third inning, led by Daschbach's 10th home run of the season. With Stanford trailing, 2-1, in the bottom of the third, Daschbach lined over the top of the foul pole in left field, giving the Cardinal a lead it would not relinquish.

Nico Hoerner played outstanding defense and finished 3-for-5, including a two-out, two-strike double in the sixth inning to score Robinson and Decker. Decker earned his first start of the season, finishing 1-for-2 with two runs.

Starter Erik Miller (2-2) earned the win, going 5.0 innings while striking out three, allowing two runs and scattering three hits. Jacob Palisch spelled Miller in the top of the sixth. The freshman struck out three, allowing one run, one hit and one walk.

Christian Robinson and Alec Wilson had two runs and two hits apiece. Robinson started his second consecutive game in center field, adding two RBI in four plate appearances. Wilson, who had a career-high three RBI in Saturday's 11-6 win, added one RBI.

No. 2 Stanford returns to the diamond for a Pac-12 road series at Arizona, starting Friday at 7 p.m. PT. All three games from Hi Corbett Field will broadcast live on Pac-12 Networks, with live statistics available at
