Stanford junior Michael Atchoo ran the second-fastest 1,500-meter time by an American this season to finish fourth in an international field at the 18th annual Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford on Sunday.
Atchoo crossed in a personal-best of 3 minutes, 38.57 seconds -- equivalent to a 3:56 mile. Chris O'Hare won in 3:38.48.
Both 3,000 steeplechase races produced world-leading times. Olympic finalist Emma Coburn, a senior at Colorado, won the women's race in 9:28.26, and American Matt Hughes took the men's event in 8:21.34.
U.S. Olympian and Santa Rosa native Kim Conley captured the women's 5,000 in 15:22.07. Mitchell Tolman laid down a squeeze bunt to score Aaron Payne and give No. 13 Oregon (33-10, 16-5 Pac-12) a 4-3 baseball win over No. 21 Stanford (23-15, 9-9). Reliever Sam Lundquist couldn't make a play on Tolman's bunt, giving the Ducks a three-game home sweep. Ryon Healy had an RBI double in the inning. Brian Ragira had a two-run single, and Justin Ringo homered for Stanford. Zach Wright threw a wild pitch in the top of the 14th, allowing Brenden Farney to score in Cal's 6-5 win at Washington (14-28, 6-12 Pac-12). Farney had a one-out single. After a walk to Andrew Knapp and a ground out, Wright uncorked the errant pitch to help Cal (20-23, 9-12) to the win. Knapp went 3 for 6 with three RBIs. The Saint Mary's baseball team (17-26, 8-7 WCC) cruised to a 10-3 win over Santa Clara (10-31, 0-18) to complete a three-game home sweep. Brenden Kalfus' hit streak is at 25 games after a single and three-run triple. Patrick Keane (De La Salle High) got his school-record 12th career save with three shutout innings. The No. 5 Arizona State softball team (42-7, 13-5 Pac-12) scored four unearned runs in the third en route to a 5-3 home win over No. 10 Cal (35-12, 9-9). Breana Kostreba and Vanessa Alvarez homered for Cal. No. 1 Stanford (27-2) lost 11-7 to No. 2 USC in the final of the MPSF women's water polo championship at Cal. Melissa Seidemann (College Park High) had three goals, and Maggie Steffens (Monte Vista High) had two for Stanford. Cal (17-7) won 12-8 over San Jose State (12-12) for fifth.
