Feb. 23, 2002

Box Score

HOUSTON, Texas - LSU scored eight unanswered runs and received a complete game performance from starting pitcher Lane Mestepey in taking an 8-4 win over Houston on Saturday at Cougar Field.

The three-game, non-conference series - now tied at 1-1 -- concludes Sunday with a 1 p.m. game at Cougar Field. Fans can hear the broadcast live on KGBC 1540 AM.

UH (5-4) jumped out to a 4-0 lead after the game's first four innings, but the third-ranked Tigers rallied with five runs in the sixth inning as Wally Pontiff provided the big blow with a two-out, two-strike, bases-clearing double.

LSU (8-2) would add a single run in the eighth inning and two more runs in the ninth inning for the final margin of victory.

Despite allowing 11 hits and four runs, Mestepey collected his first win of the season to improve to 1-0. After giving up four runs and seven hits in the first three innings, the Zachary, La., held UH scoreless with six hits the rest of the way for his fifth career complete game.

UH reliever Ryan Wagner dropped to 0-1 with the loss.

The Tigers rapped out a season best 16 hits with Sean Barker and Blake Gill posting three-hit games. David Raymer also added two RBIs in the win.

Anthony Scalise went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs to lead the UH offense which posted its third straight game with double digit hits. Third baseman Jesse Crain extended his hitting streak to a team-best seven games and Gabe Lucas went 2-for-4.

UH jumped out to a 4-0 lead after the first four innings. Chris Snyder, Michael Bourn, Hyung Cho and Crain tallied RBIs for the Cougars.

 

 

UH freshman southpaw Taylor Gartz makes his second consecutive start against a nationally-ranked opponent when he takes the hill Sunday against the Tigers. The Clear Lake, Texas, native made his collegiate debut against No. 9 Rice on Feb. 12.

LSU will start Clay Harris or Jake Tompkins in the series finale.
