Final Stats

HOUSTON - Brad Lincoln's looping RBI-single into shallow center field broke a 3-3 tie in the seventh inning and helped lead the University of Houston baseball team to a 5-3 win over Pepperdine on Friday in the opener of a non-conference series at Cougar Field.

Falling behind 3-0 after the first four-and-a-half innings, the Cougars chipped away at the lead with a run in the fifth and tied the game at 3-3 one inning later.

In the seventh inning, Jake Stewart and Travis Tully started the UH rally with back-to-back, one-out singles. After a fielder's choice put runners at first and third with two outs, Lincoln lifted a shallow fly ball into center field that bounced off the glove of diving Pepperdine center fielder Adrian Ortiz, allowing Stewart to score the eventual game-winning run.

The Cougars rally continued as Mark McGonigle drew a walk to load the bases, and Matt Farrington drew another walk to score Kevin Roberts for the final run of the evening.

UH reliever Justin Vaclavik collected the win and improved to 1-0 after holding Pepperdine to only one hit with a strikeout in two shutout innings. Freshman righthander Aaron Brown came out of the bullpen in the ninth inning and earned the first save of his career after holding the Waves scoreless in the final frame.

Pepperdine reliever Jason Dominguez dropped to 0-1 after surrendering two runs off five hits with a strikeout in 2.1 innings of work.

Stewart, Tully and Lincoln each rapped out two hits apiece for the Cougars as Tully extended his hitting streak to eight games dating back to last season.

 

 

Danny Worth and Dominguez each went 2-for-4 to lead Pepperdine, while David Uribes batted 2-for-5 with a run in the losing effort. Chad Tracy led all players with three RBIs.

The Cougars continue the non-conference series when they meet the Waves at 2 p.m., Saturday, at Cougar Field. Fans should note that Saturday's game time was moved up earlier in the week to avoid a conflict with the men's basketball team.

Both Saturday's and Sunday's games can be heard live on KGBC 1540 AM or over the Internet at www.UHCougars.com with Nick Torina and Pat Cauley calling all the action. Fans also follow the action by clicking on the "Gametracker" link at www.UHCougars.com.

After the game was scoreless through the first four innings, Pepperdine struck for the game's first runs in the fifth inning. Patrick Rooney laced a one-out single, Ortiz was hit by a pitch and Uribes slapped a single into left field to load the bases. Then, on a 3-2 count, Tracy gave Pepperdine the lead with a bases-clearing double in the fifth inning.

However that would be all the runs Pepperdine would score the rest of the way as the UH bullpen held the Waves to only one hit in the final three innings.
