A John Hester grand slam in the bottom of the second inning gave Stanford a lead they would not relinquish on Saturday afternoon. The Cardinal managed to hold off a late Texas rally to defeat the Longhorns by a 12-8 score at Disch-Falk Field. The win moves Stanford into the championship game of the Austin Regional as they next play either N.C. State or the Longhorns on Sunday at 2:00 P.M. (PDT).
