Stanford hoping inside-the-park HOUR starts a running in Pac -12

If Stanford wins the Pac-twelve baseball title and makes the NCAA Tournament, the Cardinal might see back at Quinn Brodey'south inside-the-park residence running to beat AZ as the play of the season.

Brodey'south running around the bases with two outs in the ninth inning produced a 6-5 road win Sun that allowed the Cardinal to avert a sweep in the three-game series and stay within a game of conference-leading Utah.

Stanford (19-eleven, 7-5) is trying to bounce back from a two thousand fifteen season in which it won only twenty-four games and missed the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in nine years. From 1981-2006, the Cardinal were in the tournament all but two years.

Powerful pitching has always been the program'south identity in Tag Marquess' forty years as coach, and he'south getting plenty of it this season with freshman Tristan Beck leading one of the nation'south top staffs. The problem has been inconsistent offense for a team with five one-run losses.

The Cardinal were held to a total of two runs and 11 hits in losing the first two games this past weekend, and they were down 5-1 in the eighth inning Sunday. It was still 5-4 with two outs in the top of the ninth when Brodey came to bat. He sent Cody Moffett'south first pitch to the deepest portion of the cavernous Hi Corbett Park. The ball ricocheted off the angled wall, and Nico Hoerner easily scored the tying running from second.

"As soon as I saw it hit the wall and saw him not capture it, I keep my head down and picked up the third-base coach and kept on running," Brodey told the Pac-12 Network. "He was waving me when I was halfway between second and third, so I keep it in full gear."

With the Pac-12 having a down year and Stanford sitting No. sixty-six in the RPI, the Cardinal necessity a powerful finish to create the NCAA Tournament. They control their fate, though, with series remaining against the teams presently tied and ahead of them in the standings.
