Bolstered by the pitching of senior left-hander Chris Petrini and junior right-hander Kevin Miller, the Cal baseball team (17-10) recorded its eighth shutout of the season with a 2-0 home victory over No. 22 Stanford (13-10) on Monday at Evans Diamond. The Bears won their fifth game in a row.
Petrini earned his first win of the year, throwing seven innings and allowing four hits, three walks and a season-high seven strikeouts. Miller earned his first save of the year, throwing the final two innings and yielding two hits.
The losing pitcher for Stanford was 6-foot-7 freshman right-hander Chris Jenkins (0-2, 11/3 innings, no hits, two runs, four walks, one strikeout).
Cal got the only two runs of the game in the bottom of the second inning after third baseman Mitch Delfino walked with the bases loaded, followed by shortstop Marcus Semien's sacrifice fly off Cardinal reliever Chris Reed.
