Cal Baseball At Stanford: Monday Gamethread

Cal brought in all kinds of confidence to their Easter weekend home stand against Arizona St., but the weekend finished with three defeats.  And each defeat held a similar theme – Cal’s lineup just couldn’t muster and kind of threat to Arizona St.’s pitching staff.  Twice Cal was unable to score a run against the Sun Devils, representing the only times this season Cal has failed to score a run.  CGB will have much more on these games later this week.

It probably would have been nice to have a few days off to regroup and prepare for their next series against Oregon, but just one day will have to suffice.  Tonight Cal takes on Stanford at Sunken Diamond in what is technically a non-conference game.  Cal has already lost at Stanford, by a score of 3-2 in the third game of the season.

Kevin Miller (5-2, 1.38) didn’t pitch this weekend, and will presumably be in line to start tonight.  Cal will need him to be at his best tonight against a Stanford squad coming off a huge series victory against UCLA.  Stanford will likely counter with Dean McArdle (5-2, 4.13) who has nine starts on the season but didn’t pitch against UCLA this past weekend.

The sweep to ASU hurts, but Cal is still in the top half of the standings in a tough, tough Pac-10.  If they can knock off Stanford today they’ll be going home to face a struggling Oregon squad and can rebuild the momentum lost against the Sun Devils.  Go Bears!
