    NUMBERS OF NOTE


    3 Houston was held to just three hits, a season-low.

    STILLWATER, Okla.--The University of Houston baseball team struggled in its series opener at Oklahoma State, falling 14-0 to the Cowboys on Friday evening in non-conference action.

    The Cougars dropped to 7-10 overall and 0-5 on the road with the loss, while the Cowboys improved to 12-7 on the year.

    Houston had a hard time responding to a strong performance by Cowboy starter Andrew Heaney (9.0,) who fanned eight in a complete game effort for the win. The Cougars posted just three hits, a season-low.

    Oklahoma State opened the game with a run in the first inning following two walks and a single and tacked on four more through the fifth and sixth innings following four hits. 

    The Cowboys erupted for nine runs in the eighth inning to go up 14-0, tallying seven hits and taking advantage of two Houston miscues. 

    Houston starter Jared Ray (5.1,6,5,4,5,2) got himself out of several early jams, but would suffer the loss, falling to 1-2 on the year after surrendering four earned runs on six hits and five walks with two strikeouts. 

    Freshman Chris Morales (0.2,0,0,0,0,1), junior Jordan Mannisto (1.0,0,0,0,1,0), freshmen Ryan Vruggink (0.0,3,4,4,1,0) and Logan Piper (1.0,4,5,3,1,1) all saw action out of the Cougar pen.

    Collecting Houston's hits were junior Casey Grayson (1x3), freshman Kendall Stacks (1x3) and classmate Cory Kay (1x4).

    Oklahoma State out hit Houston, 13-3 and didn't commit an error behind the complete game shutout by Heaney.

    UP NEXT
    Houston will continue the series on Saturday at 2 pm. Fans can follow the action via live audio or GameTracker at UHCougars.com or on Twitter @UHCougarBB. LHP Jordan Lewis will throw for the Cougars on Saturday.
