Bootleg Video: Baseball vs. UW

Friday's game at Sunken Diamond almost didn't happen, after a surprise storm blew through the Peninsula hours earlier. The inclement weather was a precursor to the stellar pitching from both the Cardinal and Huskies that night, with <b>Jeff Gilmore</b> and Tim Lincecum blowing away hitters. The difference in the 2-1 Stanford win came in the bottom of the 6th, on a strange play at the plate...

Friday night was a contest to remember at Sunken Diamond, with a pair of ace pitchers on top of their game.  Both Jeff Gilmore for Stanford and Tim Lincecum for Washington threw complete game four-hitters, though both yielded an earned run in the sixth inning.  The Cardinal added an unearned run in the bottom of the sixth as well, when a collision at home plate turned a sure out for Jed Lowrie into the game-winning run.  Watch how John Mayberry, Jr. doubled to help the Cardinal score Lowrie and Chris Lewis in the sixth, as well as five innings of action that Gilmore threw.  Gilmore was touched for a two-out run in the top of the sixth, but after his teammates rallied in the bottom of the inning, he locked down the rest of the way and retired all nine hitters he faced in the final three innings.
