1st | Houston jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first after Wong and Padgett opened the game with back-to-back singles, setting the table for Davis, who plated Wong on an RBI-single.

4th | Down 3-1, the Cougars tied the game in the fourth after freshmen Lael Lockhart and Jared Triolo reached on back-to-back, one-out singles. After a Cougar strikeout, Hollis drove a two-out pitch into right center, scoring both Lockhart and Triolo for a standup, two-run triple -- tying the game at 3-3.

5th | Knotted at 3-3, Houston added two more runs in the fifth inning after a leadoff walk by Padgett and a one-out single by Corey Julks set up the perfect opportunity for Scheiner to plate his first two RBI of his Houston career on a two-run double into left center to give Houston the 5-3 lead for good.
