Houston Baseball senior catcher Caleb Barker has been named to the 2014 Johnny Bench Award Watch List presented by BaseballSavings.com, as announced today by the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission.
Set to make its first road trip of the season away from the city, Houston Baseball will head west to play three games over the weekend against USC (Friday at 8 p.m. CT-Los Angeles, Calif.), No. 9 UCLA (Saturday at 4 p.m. CT-Los Angeles, Calif.) and Pepperdine (Sunday at 1 p.m. CT-Malibu, Calif.).
Houston Baseball used 17 hits, highlighted by a program-record six hits by senior Frankie Ratcliff and a combined shutout effort by five Cougar pitchers en route to a 10-0 run-rule victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Wednesday afternoon at Cougar Field.
Houston Baseball will gear up for one midweek contest before traveling out West this weekend when it welcomes Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to Cougar Field Wednesday. First pitch is slated for 4 p.m.
Due to expected low temperatures and inclement weather, Houston Baseball's originally scheduled Tuesday contest this week vs. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has been moved to this Wednesday at 4 p.m. at Cougar Field.
