WSU baseball never led in a 10-1 defeat to No. 3 Stanford University on Friday.

The Cardinal (41-8) piled up 14 hits and scored three runs in each the fifth, sixth and seventh innings in their victory.

Freshman right-handed pitcher Hayden Rosenkrantz pitched into the fifth inning as the Cougars (15-29-1) starter. He allowed two runs on four hits while striking out four.

Stanford opened the scoring in the bottom of the third with a single and triple off Rosenkrantz.

WSU immediately tied it in the top of the fourth. Senior outfielder Blake Clanton singled and stole second. He later scored on a single by senior first baseman James Rudkin.

That would be the only run the Cougars would bring across the plate in the game. They managed eight hits and five walks but left 11 men on base.

Stanford took the lead for good in the fifth. Junior infielder Nico Hoerner doubled with the bases loaded to bring home two runs then a sacrifice fly made it a 4-1 game.

The Cardinal extended their lead to 7-1 with three runs on four hits, including two doubles.

Another three runs in the top of the seventh put the game out of reach for the Cougars.

The leadoff batter reached on an error by junior infielder Andres Alvarez. Redshirt sophomore left-handed pitcher Isaac Mullins got the next two batters out before giving up three hits and a walk to give the Cardinal a 10-1 lead. All three runs Mullins allowed were unearned.

Game two of the series is set for 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Sunken Diamond. The game can also be seen live on Pac-12 Networks.
