Baseball Finishes Weekend Sweep of San Francisco

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Santa Clara baseball finished its three-game sweep of San Francisco with a 7-4 victory Sunday afternoon.

The win was the Broncos' (27-15, 13-8 WCC) ninth in a row, giving them their longest streak since a 16-game stretch from April 11-May 2, 1997. It was the first sweep of San Francisco since 2003 and the first home sweep since 2002, making it the first at Stephen Schott Stadium which opened in 2005.

The streak looked like it might be in trouble in the sixth inning. Jared Feikes was cruising with a 2-0 lead having retired 14 batters in a row before two Dons (16-26, 7-17 WCC) reached and Harris Williams III cracked a three-run home run to go ahead. It didn't take long for the Broncos to respond as they retook the lead three batters into the bottom of the frame.

Feikes (3-1) finished his day throwing 6 innings and giving up four hits and a walk with a career-high eight strikeouts. August Souza collected his team-leading fourth save while throwing the final 3 innings.

The offensive star of the day for Santa Clara was Ben Steck who finished the game 3-for-4 with a home run, four RBIs, and two runs scored. Coleman Brigman and JonJon Berring both added two hits with Brigman collecting a double, run scored, and an RBI, and Berring crossing the plate.

San Francisco was led on offense by Williams III who also had a double. Christian Stapleton added a solo home run in the ninth.

Will Hearn (0-2) suffered the loss while facing three batters without getting an out and giving up two runs. Max Jones went 3 innings in the start an gave up two runs on four hits with a walk and a strikeout.

Santa Clara hosts No. 7 Stanford Tuesday.
