Pitching Breakdown:
John King | 9.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K

Starter John King was impressive once again for Houston as the senior tossed a three-hit, complete-game shutout en route to his second win of the year to move to 2-0. The Missouri City native didn't allow a free pass and struck out five sending Houston back home with its ninth win of 2017.

King retired the minimum through the first 5.0 innings before two reached in the sixth. Baylor threatened in the seventh with a leadoff single, sac bunt and an intentional walk put runners at first and second with one out, but King -- composed -- induced a groundball and flyout -- to keep Baylor off the board. The southpaw went on to retire the final six hitters for Baylor for the shutout.


KEY INNINGS
9th | It took until the ninth inning of Game 2 of Sunday's DH to score, but the Cougars used a two-run single by Scheiner to go ahead, 2-0, over Baylor. The two runs proved to be enough after three walks loaded the bases for Scheiner.


BAYLOR NOTES
Baylor starter Cody Bradford went 8.1 innings, allowing two runs on two hits with two walks -- suffering his first loss of 2017. The Bears were held to three hits in the game, led by Josh Bissonette's two base knocks.


GAME 1: BAYLOR 5, HOUSTON 0
Top Offensive Players
Connor Hollis | 1x3, 2B
Jake Scheiner | 1x3, 2B
Joe Davis | 1x4
Jared Triolo | 1x2

Houston was held to four hits as Hollis and Scheiner each doubled to lead the offense.

Pitching Breakdown:

Brayson Hurdsman | 0.1 IP, 1 H, 3 R
Joey Pulido | 0.1 IP, 1 H, 1 K

Houston starter Mitch Ullom was lights out until the eighth as the sophomore fanned six and held Baylor to just four scattered hits in his 7.1 innings of work. He would suffer the unfortunate loss, falling to 1-2 on the year.

Freshman reliever Brayson Hurdsman worked an out, but would run into some trouble, allowing one hit and hitting two batters for three earned runs. He handed the ball to junior reliever Joey Pulido, who registered the final out.


KEY INNINGS
8th | It was a scoreless game until Baylor used three hits and three free passes to score five runs in the eighth for the lead, which proved to be enough as the Cougars were held to four hits and no runs.


BAYLOR NOTES
Baylor starter Montana Parsons struck out six and allowed no runs on four hits and a walk in 7.1 innings, but reliever Kyle Hill earned the win, tossing 1.2 innings out of the bullpen. The Bears tallied six hits, led by Matt Menard and Aaron Dodson's two RBI.
