A day after his scheduled start was washed out by rain, Peter Hendron allowed one earned run over eight innings to help Santa Clara defeat Manhattan 10-2 at the Sanderson Ford Classic in Surprise, Ariz., on Sunday.

Hendron, a sophomore right-hander from Redmond, Wash., scattered eight hits and struck out a career-high seven.

"I'm used to rainouts and having to play the next day, so I know I can't be married to my routine," Hendron said. "I also made sure I had a great catch play and flat ground last night."

Greg Harisis went 2 for 5 with two RBIs and two runs for the Broncos (6-6).

It was the 500th career win for SCU coach Dan O'Brien. He won 454 times at his alma mater, UC San Diego, and has 46 wins in his third season with the Broncos.
