Sullivan Strikes Out 15 to Lead Baseball to 8-0 Win

March 22, 2002

Box Score

HOUSTON, Texas - Brad Sullivan struck out a career-high 15 batters, and three Cougar batters tallied two hits apiece as the University of Houston baseball team took an 8-0 win over No. 35 Tulane on Friday in the first-game of a Conference USA series at Cougar Field.

Sullivan, who won his career-best fifth straight game to improve to 5-0 this season, scattered only four hits and one walk during the first complete game of his collegiate career. The Nederland, Texas, native struck out at least one batter in all but two innings and allowed only two Tulane baserunners to reach second base.

With the win, the Cougars snapped a season-long three-game losing streak and extended their home winning streak in C-USA play to 20 straight games. It was also the first shutout by UH since a 1-0 win over UAB on April 4, 2001. Tulane fall to 13-10 overall and 1-3 in league action and were shutout in consecutive games for the first time since 1989 after falling to New Orleans 5-0 on Tuesday.

The series continues at 7 p.m. Saturday at Cougar Field before wrapping up with a 1 p.m. game on Sunday. Both games can be heard on KGBC Radio 1540 AM or through the Internet at www.kgbcradio.cc. The game can also be heard on a tape-delayed basis beginning at 9 p.m. on 1180 AM.

Anthony Scalise, Stuart Musslewhite and Chris Snyder each tallied two hits for the Cougars who outhit Tulane 9-4 in the game. Brett Cooley provided the power in the Cougar lineup with a three-run home run that broke the game open in the fourth inning and tallied a game-high four RBIs.

Infielder Hyung Cho saw his UH- and personal-best 15-game hitting streak come to an end after going 0-for-3 with a run. It was the longest hitting streak by a Cougar hitter since Aaron Melebeck and J.P. Woodward compiled 15-game streaks together from March 4 to April 4, 2000.

 

 

The Cougars struck for the game's first run in the second inning. Jesse Crain led off with a single up the middle and moved to second base after a sacrifice bunt from Musslewhite. Snyder then laced another single up the middle to score Crain and give the Cougars a 1-0 lead.

In the fourth inning, Cooley blasted his team-leading fourth home run of the season over the right center field wall to give UH a 4-0 lead.

UH added four more runs in the fifth inning on three hits and a Tulane error and balk. Crain tallied an RBI-single to start the rally and Cooley added another RBI to his total on a fielder's choice for an 8-0 Cougar lead.

Senior southpaw Keith Whatley takes the hill for the Cougars in game two on Saturday. This season, Whatley has posted a 5-1 record to rank first among C-USA leaders in wins. In addition, the Atlanta, Texas, native has added 25 strikeouts and a 3.78 ERA in 33.1 innings.

Lefty Beau Richardson (1-1) is expected to start for Tulane.
