    2 Freshman Cory Kay belted his team-leading second homerun of the season in the fifth inning.

    29.2 Houston's run off Kay's solo homerun in the fifth inning broke up 29.2 consecutive innings without a run scored for the Cougars.

    OXFORD, Miss.--The University of Houston baseball team wrapped up the road series at No. 14 Ole Miss, falling 11-3 on Sunday afternoon at Swayze Field.

    The Cougars dropped to 6-9 on the season, while Ole Miss improved to 13-2 with the series sweep. Houston went 29.2 consecutive innings without scoring a run before freshman Cory Kay belted his team-leading second homerun of the season to left field in the fifth to put Houston on board for the first time in the series 

    Down 3-0, Kay's solo shot cleared the left field wall, making it a two-run game. However, Ole Miss responded with two more runs of its own in the latter half of the inning to go back up 5-1.

    The Cougars put together their best inning of the weekend in a two-run sixth when senior John Cannon got things going with a hit-by-pitch. He was followed by consecutive singles off the bat of freshman Price Jacobs and sophomore Jonathan Davis, while freshman Kendall Stacks' RBI- sacrifice fly to center narrowed the score to 5-3 in the sixth.

    Houston could never continue to press Ole Miss as it went on two plate runs in the sixth, seventh, and eighth frames off of Houston's bullpen.  

    The Cougars collected seven hits in the afternoon contest, while Ole Miss tallied 13.

    Leading the way offensively for Houston were freshmen Kay (2x4, R, RBI), Jacobs (2x4, R) and sophomore Davis (2x3, RBI) each with two hits. Cannon (1x3, R) and Stacks (0x3, RBI) each contributed as well.

    Freshman Aaron Garza (1.0,3,2,2,0,0) only lasted 1.0 inning in his start, allowing two runs on three hits for the loss, falling to 1-2 this season.

    Pitching in relief for Houston was senior Mo Wiley (3.2,4,3,3,2,2), senior Codey Morehouse (1.1,2,1,1,0,0), junior Jordan Mannisto (1.0,3,3,3,0,0) and junior Ryan Bonnot (1.0,1,2,2,2,0).

    Houston will return home for a 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night contest at Cougar Field against Sam Houston State.
