Five different players rapped out two hits apiece to help lead the University of Houston baseball team to a 9-1 win over Monmouth on Saturday in the second game of a non-conference series at Cougar Field.

After falling behind 1-0 after two-and-a-half innings, the Cougars responded with nine unanswered runs to improve to 6-5 overall. UH took the lead for good in the third inning, broke the game open with five runs one inning later and sealed the deal with two more runs in the seventh inning.

Bryan Tully went 2-for-5 with two runs and an RBI, and Bryan Pounds batted 2-for-4 with an RBI to pace the top half of the Cougar lineup. But the real strength of the Cougars' 12-hit offensive outburst came from the bottom third of the lineup.

Matt Weston, Brett Logan and Mark McGonigle each went 2-for-4 with Logan and McGonigle scoring twice and the latter player chipping in with an RBI. Combined, the last third of the UH lineup finished the night 6-for-12 with five runs, three doubles and an RBI.

UH senior southpaw Matt Farrington earned the win and improved to 1-2 after holding the Hawks to only one run off four hits with three strikeouts in six innings of work.

 

 

Monmouth starter Matt Coulson collected the loss and dropped to 0-1 after giving up seven runs (five earned) off six hits in 3.1 innings.

Kyle Messineo went 2-for-3 and knocked in the Hawks' lone run in the third inning to lead Monmouth, which posted six hits for the second straight night.

The Cougars wrap up the series at 1 p.m., Sunday. The game can be heard live on www.UHCougars.com with former letterwinners Nick Torina and Pat Cauley calling all the action. Fans also can follow live stats by clicking on the "Gametracker" link at www.UHCougars.com.

Freshman righthander Luis Flores will make the first start of his career against the Hawks in the series finale. This season, the Corpus Christi, Texas, native has compiled an 0-1 record with six strikeouts and a 6.75 ERA in 5.1 innings, all out of the bullpen.

Monmouth will counter with sophomore righthander Brad Bach, who will make his first start of the 2006 season.

Monmouth struck for the game's first run in the third inning when Kyle Messineo's double down the left-field line plated Kyle Higgins, who reached on a lead-off single.

However, the Cougars answered in the bottom of the frame with a pair of runs of their own. Mark McGonigle and Bryan Tully led off the inning with back-to-back singles, and Isa Garcia loaded the bases after being plunked by a pitch. Dustin Kingsbury lifted a sacrifice fly into right field to tie the game, and Brad Lincoln followed with a single to center field to give the Cougars a 2-1 advantage.

Houston grabbed control of the game in the fourth inning, exploding for five runs off five hits and a pair of Monmouth errors. Mark McGonigle started the rally with an RBI-single to center field and scored on the first Hawk miscue of the inning. After back-to-back walks to Isa Garcia and Dustin Kingsbury, Brad Lincoln lifted a looping two-run single into shallow right center. Two batters later, Bryan Pounds laced a single into left field to plate Kingsbury and give the Cougars a 7-1 lead.

In the seventh inning, the Cougars added two more runs on a passed ball and Monmouth infield error for the final margin of victory.
