Texas snaps Stanford's win streak with 4-0 shutout

  Sophomore Nolan Kingham tossed seven scoreless innings while Beau Ridgeway was perfect through two.

PALO ALTO, Calif.—Seven scoreless innings from Nolan Kingham combined with a pair from Beau Ridgeway led No. 21 Texas Baseball (7-3) to its first shutout of the season, a 4-0 win over No. 19 Stanford (6-3) on Thursday night in game one of the four-game series at Sunken Diamond. The loss snapped Stanford’s six-game win streak as well as a 12-game home win streak that dated back to last season.

Kingham was dominant in his second start of the season. The sophomore righthander allowed just three hits and three walks while striking out a career-high eight batters in a career-long seven innings of work. 

A Las Vegas native, Kingham (2-1) needed just one early Longhorn run in the win. Senior Kacy Clemens opened the top of the second with a free pass before Bret Boswell singled to put two on. Travis Jones then dropped a bunt for a single and Clemens came around to score to make It 1-0 in favor of Texas. 

From there, Kingham and Stanford starter Kris Bubic stole the show. The two then traded zeroes through six frames before Bubic exited. 

With Bubic leaving in favor of the bullpen, senior Zane Gurwitz hit his first homer of the season—a solo  shot to left—to push the Longhorns lead to 2-0. 

In the ninth, Texas added a pair of insurance runs when Clemens and Boswell took back-to-back bases-loaded walks and give Ridgeway a 4-0 lead heading into the final at-bat for the Cardinals. 

Ridgeway (2) delivered for the Longhorns, picking up his second save of the year with two perfect innings against Stanford. The sophomore struck out two while facing the minimum. 

On the offensive side of the ball, both Gurwitz and Jones finished with two hits apiece. David Hamilton also busted out of an 0-for-22 skid with a base hit. 

The Longhorns and the Cardinal face off in game two of the four-game series on Friday night at 8 p.m. CT. Morgan Cooper is scheduled to pitch for Texas.
