SCOTTSDALE (AP) — Kody Huff and Drew Bowser each hit two of Stanford’s five home runs and the top-seeded Cardinal never trailed Thursday night in their 15-8 win over Arizona in the Pac-12 Tournament at Scottsdale Stadium.

Ranked No. 3 nationally in the D1Baseball poll, Stanford (39-14) scored in five straight innings — capped by a five-run top of the sixth — to take a 13-4 lead.

The Cardinal, who extended the program’s longest win streak since 1999 to 13 games, plays in Saturday’s semifinals against the winner of Friday’s loser-out game between Arizona and Arizona State.

Five different Stanford players had at least three hits and three more had two hits apiece. Huff finished 3-for-5 with four RBIs and five runs, and Bowser went 3-for-6 with four RBIs and four runs. Brett Barrera was 3-for-5 with a double and a solo home run.

Tanner O’Tremba went 3-for-5 with a solo homer in the bottom of the fifth inning for Arizona (36-22) and Tony Bullard was 3-for-4 with three RBIs.

Friday’s matchup between the Wildcats and Sun Devils is set for 3 p.m. ASU defeated Oregon on Thursday to stay alive in the double-elimination tournament after falling to Stanford on Wednesday.

The rival schools went 2-2 against each other during the regular season.
