Stanford baseball coach Mark Marquess captured his 1,500th career win Tuesday in the Cardinal's 11-1 nonconference victory over Cal (8-3) on the Bears' Evans Diamond.

Stanford (5-7) collected 12 hits on the way to giving Marquess the milestone victory. His career record is 1,500-788-7.

Stanford's Alex Blandino had a career-high four RBIs and had hits in his first three at-bats. The junior third baseman doubled down the left field line in the first inning to start the scoring for the Cardinal.

Brett Michael Doran, Austin Barr and Zach Hoffpauir also had multiple hits for the Cardinal.

Freshman Tyler Thorne (2-0) picked up the win after a five-inning start. He allowed three hits and struck out four.

Stanford's 11 runs were one short of its season high.

Marquess joins six other NCAA coaches with 1,500 wins. Among active coaches, only Texas' Augie Garrido and Florida State's Mike Martin have more.

Jacob Wark's solo home run in the sixth inning accounted for Cal's only run.

  • Host San Jose State (4-9) scored seven runs in the first three innings and went on to blank Saint Mary's (5-7) 10-0. Kyle Gallegos went 4 for 5 and drove in two runs for the Spartans, and Logan Handzlik (seven innings pitched, three hits allowed, seven strikeouts) won his first win of the season.
