NUMBERS OF NOTE


8 Houston plated eight runs in Saturday's game. The Cougars had only managed a combined four runs in their first five road games this season.

2 Casey Grayson was intentionally walked twice against OSU on Saturday. The last Cougar to be IBB twice in one game was Josh Stirneman on April 22, 2007 at Tulane.

5 Houston tallied a season-high five extra base hits in Saturday's 8-1 win over OSU, led by Grayson's two doubles and Appling's homerun.

STILLWATER, Okla.-- The University of Houston baseball team earned its first road win of 2012 behind the arm of senior Jordan Lewis as the Cougars ignited for an 8-1 win on Saturday over Oklahoma State, snapping its six-game win streak, to even the series at 1-1.

With the win, Houston improved to 8-1 on the year, while the Cowboys dropped to 12-8. The Cougars scored eight runs on 11 hits and didn't commit an error, while Oklahoma State tallied nine hits and one error.

Houston had managed to only plate four runs in the last five road games until Saturday's production. The Cougars tallied five extra base hits, a season-high, led by junior Casey Grayson's two doubles and sophomore Landon Appling's solo homerun, his second of the year. 

"We put yesterday's game behind us. We came back and responded today. We have showed at times this year that we can be really good," said second-year head coach Todd Whitting.

Lewis (7.0,8,1,1,2,4) was impressive all afternoon in his season-long 7.0 innings of work, shutting down the Cowboy offense, allowing just one run on eight hits and two walks with four strikeouts. The southpaw from Oregon earned his team-leading third win of the season and improved to 3-2 this year.

Lewis was backed by a very solid defensive effort by the Cougars as they escaped several jams due to great defensive plays, including a 1-5 putout at third on an attempted sacrifice bunt, a 1-2-3 pickoff at first, a diving grab in right field by junior Jacob Lueneburg, a 4-6 putout a second on a diving snag by junior Chase Jensen, and a catch at the wall by freshman Cory Kay

Senior Mo Wiley (2.0,1,0,0,1,2) tossed the final 2.0 innings, allowing just one hit and one walk, while fanning two in relief.

Offensively, Lueneburg (3x5, 2 R, RBI) led Houston at the plate with three hits and two runs scored with one RBI, while Grayson (2x3, 3 RBI, 2 IBB) drove in three on two doubles and was intentionally walked twice.

The last time a Houston Cougar was intentionally walked twice in one game came back on April 22, 2007 when Josh Stirneman was granted two free passes at Tulane.

Also notching two hits in Saturday's game was Jensen (2x5, R, 3 RBI) who also drove in three on a double that nearly cleared the centerfield wall with two outs in the eighth inning. Appling (2x4, 2 R, RBI) homered for the second time this year to lead off the fifth inning, while finishing the day with two hits.

Freshman Zack Gibson (1x4, R) and senior John Cannon (1x4, 2B) also contributed with hits.

The Cougars opened the second with their first run of the game on an RBI-double by Grayson, plating Lueneburg, who opened the inning with a single through the right side.

Houston tacked on two more runs in the fourth when Jensen and Lueneburg notched back-to-back singles, then scoring on Grayson's second double of the game. Cannon's sacrifice bunt placed Jensen and Lueneburg at second and third prior to Grayson's hit.

A three-run fifth for Houston put the Cougars up 6-1 when Appling opened with a homerun, followed by several free passes by Cowboy pitching 

Houston scored two final runs in the eighth on Jensen's double to centerfield.

Oklahoma State received its only run on a solo homerun in the fourth. 

Houston's middle of the order recorded eight of the 11 hits and four of the five extra base hits.

UP NEXT
Houston will wrap up the weekend and look to take the series on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Stillwater, Okla.
