NUMBERS OF NOTE


10 Despite the loss, Houston accounted for 10 hits against Texas Tech.

3 Defensively, the Cougars struggled, committing three errors.

HOUSTON--Junior Chase Jensen finished 3-for-4 with two RBI on Sunday, but it wasn't enough as No. 24 Texas Tech handed the University of Houston baseball team its first loss in the Houston College Classic at Minute Maid Park as the Red Raiders totaled 15 hits in a 10-4 win over the Cougars.

The loss was the first of the weekend for Houston was it finished the strong-fielded tournament with a 2-1 overall record, having beaten Tennessee and No. 4 Arkansas. Houston dropped to 6-5 overall, while Texas Tech improved to 9-3 on the year with the win.

"We came out of the blocks very well today and played hard early," said head coach Todd Whitting. "Sometimes you lose games and sometimes you get beat. We thoroughly got beat today. It's just one of those games where they played better than we did."

Jensen continued his impressive showing at the plate, driving in two of Houston's four runs on three hits. The second-baseman finished the tournament with a .583 average on a 7-for-12 effort with a double, three runs scored, four RBI and a hit-by-pitch.

Sophomore Landon Appling finished Sunday's contest with two base hits in a 2-for-3 performance with one run scored.

Freshman Kendall Stacks (1x4, RBI) drove in a run on a base knock, while classmate Zack Gibson (1x4, R), senior Jake Runte (1x3), junior Wes Theiss (1x2), and senior John Cannon (1x3, R) each contributed with a hit.

Houston starter Aaron Garza (3.0,6,4,4,1,3) tossed 3.0 innings, allowed four runs on six hits and one walk with three strikeouts, but left with the no-decision.

Junior reliever Jordan Mannisto (1.2,5,3,2,1,1) suffered the loss after surrendering two earned runs on five hits in 1.2 innings of work. With the loss, Mannisto dropped to 1-1 on the year.

Houston looked sharp offensively from the beginning as the Cougars plated two runs through the third inning to take a 2-0 lead over Texas Tech. However, a four-run fourth by the Red Raiders on four hits sparked a come-from-behind win. Texas Tech went on to plate four more runs in the sixth and two in the seventh for 10.

The Cougars plated two in the fifth after Appling led off with a bullet that literally went directly through the left field wall under the Crawford Boxes. He was followed by a single off Grayson's bat and a double by Jensen, robbed of a triple.

Texas Tech reliever Trey Masek (4.0,3,0,0,0,6) fanned six in 4.0 innings of work and scattered three hits for his first win of 2012.

"Texas Tech played outstanding. Masek is one of the best relievers in the country," said Whitting.

The Red Raiders strung together 15 hits, including five doubles and capitalized on three Cougar errors.

UP NEXT
Houston will begin its March road tour when it travels to UL-Lafayette on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. midweek contest.
