Stanford coach Mark Marquess would have been happy to score one run in the ninth inning against Florida State.

How about 11?

"That's one of those things that happen. You don't know why it happens," Marquess said after the Cardinal's record-tying 11-run outburst broke open a tie game in a 16-5 victory in Saturday's College World Series opener.

Brent Milleville's three-run homer highlighted Stanford's biggest inning of the year and the biggest in a CWS game since Cal State Fullerton scored 11 times against LSU in the first inning in 1994. Sean Ratliff added a two-run single and Cord Phelps a two-run double.

Stanford (40-22-2) will play Monday against the winner of the game between top-seeded Miami and Georgia on Saturday night. The Seminoles (54-13) will try to stay alive Monday against the Miami.
