BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Danny Diekroeger hit a three-run homer, Brett Hanewich set a career high in strikeouts and Stanford eliminated Youngstown State with an 12-4 win Sunday at the NCAA’s Bloomington Regional.

The Cardinal (32-24) must beat Indiana twice to advance to next week’s super regional. Indiana will move on with a win Sunday night.

Highlighted by back-to-back home runs by Diekroeger and Alex Blandino, Stanford scored six runs in the second inning, beginning with consecutive run-scoring singles from Brett Michael Doran and Tommy Edman.

Austin Slater extended his hitting streak to a career-best 20 games for the Cardinal.

Hanewich settled in after a rocky start, tossing seven innings, scattering three hits and striking out nine.

Nick DiNello and Josh White had RBI singles in the ninth for the Penguins.
