The Stanford Cardinal (39-16) stayed alive Monday at the 2021 College World Series with a big offensive performance, knocking out Pac-12 rival Arizona 14-5 at Omaha, Neb.
Stanford pounded out 20 hits against the Wildcats (45-18) — a Stanford school record — on a big day highlighted by a seven-run third inning.
The 20 hits were also the most in any game in Omaha since 2009.
Center fielder Brock Jones was among five Stanford players to collect three hits, and Jones’ three-run home run in the seventh inning contributed to his five RBIs on the afternoon.
Alex Williams was credited with the victory for the Cardinal, allowing four runs in 5 1/3 innings with three walks and four strikeouts.
Stanford next plays the loser of Monday night’s Vanderbilt-North Carolina State game.
