March 25, 2003

Final Stats

HUNTSVILLE, Texas - Hyung Cho blasted two home runs and added three RBIs to help lead the University of Houston baseball team to a 7-3 win over Sam Houston State on Tuesday at Holleman Field in Huntsville, Texas.

Cho, who homered in his third straight game and has now hit safely in his last six games, jumped into the team lead with five homers to date and finished the day 2-for-5 with a pair of runs. He became the first Cougar slugger to hit two home runs in one game since Chris Snyder accomplished the feat against Tulane at the Conference USA Tournament on May 25, 2002.

For the sixth straight game, the Cougars rapped out double-digit hits, recording 11 against the Bearkats. Travis Tully went 2-for-4 with a run and RBI and recorded his sixth straight game with at least two hits. Brett Logan went 2-for-4 with an RBI as all but one Cougar starter recorded at least one hit in the game.

Thanos Papavasiliou extended his hitting streak to eight games, while Stuart Musslewhite and Nick Bott each hit safely in their seventh straight game.

The Cougars improved to 12-13 overall and won their season-best fourth straight game. SHSU dropped to 11-15 overall and collected its fourth straight loss.

UH starter Gene Flores collected his first win of the season and improved to 1-1 after scattering one run off three hits with three strikeouts in five innings. SHSU starter Dustin Craig dropped to 1-3 after giving up three runs off five hits in 1.2 innings.

UH jumped ahead in their first at-bat when Cho blasted a solo homer over the left field wall for a 1-0 UH lead.

 

 

The Cougars struck for two more runs in the second inning. Back-to-back singles from Brian Martin and Stuart Musslewhite put runners on second, and Logan plated Martin with an RBI-single up the middle to expand the Cougar advantage. Tully then slapped an RBI-single to right field to score Musslewhite and hand the Cougars a 3-0 lead.

In the third inning, Thanos Papavasiliou ripped a single to left field and moved to third base on Matt Farrington's double down the left field line. Martin then grounded out to second base but not before Papavasiliou scored for a 4-0 UH lead.

SHSU recorded its first run of the game in the bottom of the third inning on Lou Ferrell's sacrifice fly to center field. The Bearkats pulled to within two runs in the sixth on Phillip Weaver's RBI-groundout.

The Cougars took control of the game in the seventh inning with three more runs. After Tully reached on a bunt single and Gabe Lucas reached on a fielder's choice, Cho smacked his second homer of the game over the right field fence, just out of reach of leaping SHSU right fielder Jeremy Locke.

In the eighth inning, Jonathan Hamilton's groundout scored Jeremy Locke, who walked to lead off the frame and moved into scoring position on Phillip Weaver's double to right center.

Weaver went 2-for-4 with an RBI to lead the SHSU offense, which recorded only five hits in the game.

The Cougars return to action this weekend as they travel north on Interstate 45 to meet Conference USA rival in a three-game series in Fort Worth, Texas. The series begins with 6:30 p.m. games on both Friday and Saturday before wrapping up at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Fans can catch the action on KAXF 88.3 FM or over the Internet at www.UHcougars.com with pregame slated to begin about 15 minutes before first pitch.
