LAKE CHARLES, La. - The University of Houston baseball team scored four runs in the first inning and never looked back in taking an 11-1 win over McNeese State on Tuesday in a non-conference win at Cowboy Diamond.

Junior third baseman Jimmy Cesario and senior second baseman Ryan Lormand rapped out back-to-back RBI-singles, and freshman outfielder Matt Murphy added a two-run single in the first inning to hand the Cougars all the run support they would need to win their eighth straight win against the Cowboys.

The Cougars added another run in the third inning when junior DH Felix Fanaselle smashed the first pitch he saw over the wall in left field for a 5-0 Cougar lead.

McNeese State added a run in the bottom of the inning on Josh Cholley's RBI-double, but that would be all the offense the Cowboys would muster the rest of the way. The Cougars added three runs in the fifth and eighth innings for the final margin of victory.

All but one Cougar starter recorded at least one hit in the game with four players rapping out at least two hits. Lormand went 3-for-5 with two runs, two stolen bases and two RBIs to lead a UH offensive attack, which pounded out 14 hits in the win.

Freshman shortstop Blake Kelso went 2-for-6 with a double, triple and three RBIs, while senior first baseman Bryan Pounds went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs and an RBI. Although he saw his career-best 19-game hitting streak snapped at No. 23. East Carolina on Saturday, the Houston native has hit safely in 21 of his last 22 games dating back to last season.

Sophomore catcher Chris Wallace batted 2-for-4 with a run and double.

Meanwhile, Cougar pitchers Chris Wright, John Touchton and Taylor Hammack combined to limit the Cowboys to only one run off four hits with 10 strikeouts. Making the first start of his career, Wright allowed only one run off a walk and four hits with three strikeouts in four innings.

Touchton, who collected the win and improved to 2-1, limited the Cowboys to only one walk with five strikeouts in four shutout innings, while Hammack struck out two batters in the final inning.

The Cougars continue a busy week when they return home to Cougar Field to play host to No. 12 Rice at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday during Game Two of the annual Silver Glove Series. The Owls grabbed a 1-0 lead in the Series after rallying for a 12-11 win on Feb. 27 at Reckling Park.

Freshman righthander Jared Ray is scheduled to toe the rubber for the Cougars, while Rice will counter with sophomore righthander Mike Ojala.
