Hart, No. 14 Southern Cal blank Stanford 2-0

  The Trojans' Mitch Hart only allowed five hits while striking out six in the shutout.

LOS ANGELES -- Behind a shutout by freshman Mitch Hart, Southern California defeated Stanford 2-0 in the rubber match to take the series on Sunday afternoon at Dedeaux Field.

With the victory, the Trojans improve to 34-16 on the year and move into a tie for second place in the Pac-12 with a record of 15-9.

Hart threw the second shutout of his career, scattering five hits in nine innings, with three walks and six strikeouts.

The Trojans got on the board in the fourth inning, as Blake Lacey laced a double and then stole third base. A double from the hot-hitting AJ Ramirez drove in the first run of the day.

The Trojans added an insurance run against Cardinal (21-27, 7-17 Pac-12) Andrew Summerville in the eighth inning, as Dante Flores singled to right field with two on and one down to push the Trojans ahead 2-0.

Hart closed things out down the final stretch, retiring the last six batters he faced to earn his seventh win of the season.

The last time the Trojans had two complete games in one weekend series was Mother's Day weekend 2013, when Wyatt Strahan threw a one-run complete game and Nigel Nootbaar threw a shutout as the Trojans took the series from Washington State.
