Stanford baseball heads to NCAA Super Regional following comeback
Stanford freshman TOMMY EDMAN hit a walk-off two-run home run on Tuesday, securing a 5-4 win for the Cardinal baseball team over Indiana University. The play sends Stanford to the NCAA Super Regional next weekend in Nashville to face Vanderbilt in a best-of-three series.
“It was a fantastic win for us,” said MARK MARQUESS, the Clarke and Elizabeth Nelson Director of Baseball at Stanford. “Very proud of our team the way we battled back, and we beat an outstanding team.”
Edman, a switch-hitter, blasted a home run from the left side of the plate for the first time in his life, he said after the game. The shortstop said he was “just trying to get on base, to be honest. Home run was the last thing I expected.”
