Baseball Falls to Baylor at Minute Maid Park Classic

Feb. 14, 2003

Final Stats

HOUSTON - Baylor batted around twice in the first three innings on the way to a 14-4 win over the University of Houston baseball team Friday during the first day of the Minute Maid Park Classic.

The Bears (3-2), ranked No. 10 in the latest Baseball America poll, scored five runs in the second inning and added six more in their next at-bat to snap a three-game losing streak to the Cougars dating back to last season.

UH starter Brad Sullivan collected the loss and dropped to 0-1 after giving up seven hits and five runs in only 1.2 innings of work. With Michael Griffin's leadoff home run in the second inning, the Nederland, Texas, native saw his consecutive scoreless inning streak snapped at 31.2 innings, the third longest streak in school history.

Baylor starter Jared Theodorakos earned his first win of the year and improved to 1-0 after scattering six hits and two runs in 5.0 innings.

The 13th-ranked Cougars return to action at 11 a.m. Saturday as they face Alabama. Junior southpaw Danny Zell is scheduled to start for UH. The Cypress, Texas, native gave up only one hit in a career-best 7.0 innings with four strikeouts against host Pepperdine in the Cougars' lone win at the Battle at the Beach last weekend.

Alabama is slated to throw lefthander Brent Carter, who will be making his first appearance of the season.

Saturday's game can be heard live on 88.3 FM KAXF or over the Internet at www.UHcougars.com.

Baylor took control of the game early with five runs off six hits in the second inning. Michael Griffin started the scoring with a home run on the first pitch of the frame to snap Sullivan's scoreless inning streak.

After a walk and double by Trey Webb put runners on second and third, Zach Dillon scored on a wild pitch and Kyle Reynolds lifted a sacrifice fly to center field to plate Webb. Chris Durbin and David Murphy followed with back-to-back doubles with Murphy coming around to score on Ross Bennett's single to right field.

 

 

The Bears followed with another explosive inning in their next at-bat. After an infield single and walk, Paul Witt smashed a single through the left side to score Webb. Durbin walked to load the bases, before Murphy knocked in two more runs with a single to right field. Josh Ford then blasted a double off the left field wall to score Durbin and Bennett lifted a sacrifice fly to center field. Griffin then laced a single to right field to score Ford and cap the scoring in the inning.

The Cougars finally got on the scoreboard in the fifth inning when Brett Logan blasted a two-run shot over the left field wall. It was the first home run of the Brenham, Texas, native's career.

UH scored two more runs in the seventh inning. Freshman Kevin Roberts hit a slicing single to right field in his first career at-bat and came all the way around to score when Michael Bourn laced a shot into the right field corner and raced to third base for his first triple of the year.

Josh Ford pushed the Baylor lead into double digits in the bottom of the inning, though, with a three-run shot to left field that capped the game's scoring.

Bourn went 2-for-4 with a run, RBI and triple, while Cole Bruce went 2-for-4 with a run in his first game of the year to lead the Cougar offensive attack.

All but two Baylor starters recorded at least one hit in the game with Griffin going 4-for-5 with a run and two RBIs. Ford also batted 4-for-5 with two runs and four RBIs while Webb went 2-for-3 with a pair of runs in the winning effort.
