Cho Raps Out Three Hits to Help Lead Baseball to Series Sweep

March 2, 2003

Final Stats

HOUSTON - Hyung Cho went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs to help lead the University of Houston baseball team to a 5-1 win Sunday at Cougar Field and the series sweep over Louisiana-Lafayette.

The Cougars scored twice in their first at-bat, and that would be all the offense that Cougar starter Garrett Mock and reliever Ryan Wagner needed to record the team's sixth straight win over the Cajuns, dating back to last season.

Cho, who batted .615 (8-for-13) in the series against the Cajuns, has now hit safely in his last five games and jumped into the team lead with a .388 batting average.

However, Cho wasn't the only Cougar swinging a hot bat Sunday. Freshman outfielder Matt Farrington went 2-for-3 with an RBI, and fellow outfielder Gabe Lucas went 2-for-3 with a double and run to lead UH, which rapped out nine hits in the game.

Mock (1-2) scattered three hits and one run with four strikeouts during a career-best-tying six innings of work on the way to his first win of the season. Wagner recorded his second save of the series after retiring nine batters of the 10 batters that he faced with four strikeouts during the final three innings.

Cajun starter Jordy Templet (1-2) collected the loss after giving up nine hits and five runs with a walk in 7.2 innings of work.

Working in his 500th game as the UH head coach, Cougar skipper Rayner Noble recorded the 300th victory of his collegiate coaching career, becoming only the third man in school history to reach the 300-win mark. Noble, now in his ninth season at his alma mater, has recorded a 300-200 (.600) record in his career.

The Cougars scored the games first runs in their first at-bat. Kevin Roberts led off with a single through the right side and moved to third on Cho's first double to right center. Thanos Papavasiliou grounded out to first base to plate Roberts, and Cho scored on Stuart Musslewhite's sacrifice fly to left field for a 2-0 UH lead.

 

 

UL Lafayette cut into that lead with a run of its own in the third inning when Sport Voorhies scored on a UH infield error. However, that would be all the offense the Cajuns would muster the rest of the way.

UH pushed its advantage back to two runs with another run in the sixth inning. Cho led off with a double down the left field line and came around to score on a Cajun error in the infield.

In the seventh, Lucas blasted a double down the left field line and moved to third on a sacrifice by Sam Mitchell before scoring on a balk by Templet. One inning later, Farrington's double down the left field line scored Musslewhite, who reached on a two-out single and then stole second base to move into scoring position.

The Cougars return to action at 7 p.m., Tuesday as they meet crosstown rival Rice in Game Two of the Silver Glove Series at Reckling Park. The Owls took an early lead in the 2003 Series after winning 3-0 on Feb. 18 at Cougar. Field.

That game can be heard live on KAXF 88.3 FM or over the Internet at www.UHcougars.com. Fans can also track the action batter-by-batter by clicking on the "Gametracker" link on the "Daily Calendar" at the bottom of the main page at www.UHcougars.com.
