    NUMBERS OF NOTE


    4 Houston has now dropped four games in a row, dating back to March 4 in a loss to Texas Tech at the Houston College Classic.

    25 The Cougars have yet to score a run in 25.0 straight innings. The last inning Houston plated a run was in the second inning at UL-Lafayette last Tuesday.

    OXFORD, Miss.—The University of Houston baseball team was held scoreless for the second straight game, dropping a 9-0 decision to No. 14 Ole Miss on Saturday in non-conference action at Swayze Field.

    Houston struggled once again, finding a way to plate runs as it was shutout, while falling to 6-8 on the season, along with dropping its fourth straight game. With the win, Ole Miss improved to 12-2.

    The Cougars looked promising in the first as leadoff hitter Jake Runte led off with single, but Ole Miss was able to work out of the jam, executing a double play to end the inning.

    Houston collected four of its five hits in the first two innings, but the struggle of plating runs continued in the second when the Cougars looked to tie an already 2-0 early Ole Miss lead, but left runners stranded on all three bases.

    Ole Miss starter RJ Hively (6.0,4,0,0,2,9) settled in after two frames and retired the next 13 Houston hitters, which included four consecutive innings of retiring the side with nine strikeouts. Hively improved to 3-0 with the win.

    The Rebels took advantage of a five-run third inning to extend its lead to 7-0 before adding two late runs in the sixth. Houston tallied five hits to Ole Miss’ 15 and committed two errors before four Houston pitchers.

    Picking up a hit in today’s game was Runte (1x3, BB), juniors Chase Jensen (1x4), Jacob Lueneburg (1x4), freshmen Price Jacobs (1x4), Kendall Stacks (1x1) and sophomore Jonathan Davis (1x2).

    Houston starter Jordan Lewis (2.1,8,7,6,2,1) lasted only 2.1 innings, allowing six earned runs on eight hits with two walks and one strikeout for the loss. The southpaw fell to 2-2 on the year.

    Seeing action out of the pen for the Cougars was sophomore Chase Wellbrock (2.2,5,2,2,1,2) and freshmen Logan Piper (2.0,0,0,0,0,0) and Chris Morales (1.0,2,0,0,1,2).
