Wayne Taylor's pinch-hit, three-run home run in the top of the eighth inning helped the Stanford baseball team stay alive with a 10-7 win over host Indiana in the NCAA Bloomington Regional on Sunday.
Stanford (33-24) and Indiana (44-14) will meet again for the regional title Monday at 2:30 p.m. (PT).
The Cardinal trailed 6-4 when Taylor sent Jake Kelzer's pitch over the left-center field wall.
"I thought that was a pretty good pitch," Taylor said. "I ended up getting the barrel on it and driving it pretty well."
Stanford added three insurance runs in the ninth, including Zach Hoffpauir's RBI triple.
Hoffpauir and teammate Austin Slater each had three hits.
Indiana led the entire game until Taylor's blast, jumping ahead with a three-run first.
Hoffpauir and Brant Whiting hit back-to-back solo homers for Stanford in the second inning.
A.J. Vanegas (3-3) earned the win after throwing a season-high 51/3 innings of relief.
Earlier in the day, Stanford beat Youngstown State 12-4.
The Cardinal's Brett Hanewich (4-4) allowed one earned run and three hits in seven innings, and Danny Diekroeger went 3 for 4, including a three-run homer, against the Penguins (17-38).
Junior Patrick Rodgers won the 2014 Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year Award, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced.
He is Stanford's second Nicklaus recipient, joining Tiger Woods (1996). Rodgers had six collegiate victories in 2013-14 and tied Woods' all-time Stanford record for career wins (11).
The Cal men's crew won the national title in the second varsity eight and third varsity eight en route to a runner-up team finish at the Intercollegiate Rowing Association championships in West Windsor, New Jersey. Cal had 188 points, four behind Washington at Lake Mercer. In the first varsity eight race, Washington won, followed by Brown and Cal. Stanford was 13th overall, winning the varsity eight "C" final.
Cal culminated its unbeaten run through the Collegiate Rugby Championship with a 24-21 victory over Kutztown to become back-to-back 7s champions in Philadelphia. The Bears overcame an early 7-0 deficit. Captain Seamus Kelly had a team-high six tries in a three-day, six-match effort.
San Jose Giants
Chuckie Jones fell a single short of the cycle, and the Giants rolled 8-3 at Inland Empire. Jones had an RBI double in the second, a triple in the fourth and a solo homer in the eighth. He struck out in the sixth.
