Greg Ellena and Rusty DeBold hit two homers each and Chris Hart added another to lead Miami to a record-setting 17-3 victory over top-ranked Stanford in the first round of the NCAA College World Series Saturday night at Omaha, Neb.
The two homers each by Ellena and DeBold tied a tournament record shared by six others. Each hit a three-run shot, to go with another three-run homer by Hart, to break a tournament home run record of four in one game set by Arizona State in 1981.
DeBold's 11 total bases also tied a national tournament record.
Miami's Kevin Sheary (5-4) pitched seven strong innings to pick up the victory. Jeff Ballard (14-3), the first of five Stanford pitchers, allowed seven runs in 4 innings.
Stanford scored in the third on Mark Davis' run-scoring single, and in the sixth on Mike DeBenon's RBI double and a run-scoring groundout by Toi Cook.
