Big Innings Lead to Victory

NORMAN, Okla. - Junior Carter Graham and junior Tommy Troy each collected four hits and fell a leg short of the cycle to help power the No. 7 Stanford Cardinal past the Oklahoma Sooners 16-5 on Sunday.

The Cardinal (18-7) managed nine extra-base hits, including four doubles, three triples and two home runs, in the victory over the Sooners (15-14). Stanford did the bulk of its damage in the fifth and eighth innings, putting five runs on the board in each frame.

Troy fell a homer shy of the cycle, finishing 4-for-6 with three runs scored and two RBIs. Graham was a triple short of the cycle, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, a homer, three runs scored and five RBIs. The round-tripper was Graham's third of the year.

Junior Joey Dixon (3-0) got the win for Stanford after tossing six innings, giving up two runs, one earned, on three hits, allowing five walks and striking out a career-high eight batters. Sophomore Ty Uber also pitched well, going two shutout innings without allowing a hit, while freshman Toran O'Harran struck out the only man he faced to end what was a three-run seventh inning for Oklahoma.

Braden Montgomery, Malcolm Moore, Alberto Rios, Saborn Campbell and Owen Cobb all finished with multiple hits - Campbell's two serving as the first of his collegiate career. Montgomery contributed a triple, while Drew Bowser added a homer - his fifth of the year.

Stanford will return to Pac-12 play next week, traveling to California for a three-game series starting on Thursday.
