HOUSTON -- Houston Baseball freshman Mitch Ullom nearly tossed a no-hitter, and led the No. 19 Cougars to a 7-1 win over Texas Southern on Wednesday night at Darryl & Lori Schroeder Park for Win No. 400 inside this home facility.

With Wednesday's win, the Cougars notched the 400th home win, dating back to 1995 and also improved to 10-6 on the year, while Texas Southern fell to 7-11.

Ullom (8.2,3,1,0,1,7) entered the ninth, having retired every hitter, but one he had faced in the game (a walk in the 8th). Texas Southern would lead off the ninth with a single and eventually tacked on two more for three total base knocks and one unearned run, but Ullom wrapped up a career-night for the Cougars.

The Sweeny, Texas native struck out a career-high seven Tigers in a career-long 8.2 innings of work, allowing just three hits, one unearned run and one walk for his second collegiate win, improving to 2-1 in 2016.

Ullom totaled 22 straight retired hitters before allowing a 1-out walk in the eighth. He also only faced 29 in the game.

Houston tallied 11 hits on Wednesday as junior Jose Reyes went 4-for-4, which included a triple and double. The shortstop drove in a pair and scored two runs to lead the Cougar offense.

Senior Justin Montemayor added another multi-hit game to his 2016 resume, going 2-for-4 with a run and a team-high three RBI, two of which came on his second home run of the year.

Sophomore Connor Wong drove in a run on a hit, going 1-for-4, while senior Michael Pyeattt (1x5, R), freshman Caleb Morris (1x3), freshman Grayson Padgett (1x1, R, 2B) and sophomore Zac Taylor (1x4, R) each added a base hit in the win.

Montemayor put Houston up early in the bottom of the first when he belted his second home run of the year, a two-run shot to right field, scoring Pyeatt, who reached on a one-out single.

Ullom continued to shine, holding Texas Southern scoreless and retiring the first nine hitters, sending the Cougars back to bat with the chance to extend their lead to 3-0 with a single run in the third after Montemayor plated Reyes, who reached on a leadoff single.

The hitting continued in the fourth with a two-run frame. With two outs, Hollis drew a walk and Reyes tripled to score Hollis, making it a 4-0 game. Wong then followed with an RBI-single, scoring Reyes for the five-run lead.

With Wong's single in the fourth, he extended his hit streak to 13 games and has now reached base in all 16 games this season.

Houston would go on to plate two more runs in the eighth for the 7-0 lead as pinch hitter Padgett got things going with a 1-out double down the right field line. He was followed up by a single from Taylor before Reyes plated his second run of the game.

Texas Southern -- held to no hits -- through 8.0 complete innings, led off the ninth with a single through the left side and followed that up with a bunt single and a throwing error, which later resulted in one run on an RBI-single.

Tigers' starter Robert Pearson (3.2,5,3,2,1,0) suffered the loss, falling to 1-2 on the year after allowing two earned runs on five hits and one walk in 3.2 innings.

"It was a good win for us tonight. [Mitch] Ullom was outstanding, taking a no-hitter into the ninth inning; I'm really proud of him and his effort.

"[Jose] Reyes, hitting at the bottom of the order, with his four hits was a really big boost for us, and [Justin] Montemayor got us on the board early with the home run. We were clicking on all cylinders tonight and we look forward to the weekend."
