The Cougars stranded nine base runners and tallied seven hits as seven different players recorded a base knock. Sophomore Connor Hollis (0x2, SAC) drove in a run on a sacrifice bunt, while senior Justin Montemayor (1x3, R) and sophomore Corey Julks (1x4, R) each scored a run.

Senior Michael Pyeatt (1x5) singled to extend his hit streak to 16 straight games, while sophomore Connor Wong (1x5) singled to reach base now in 23 of the 24 games.

Houston starter John King (5.0,6,5,0,1,4) struck out four and didn't allow an earned run on six hits and a walk, but would suffer the loss, falling to 3-2 on the year.

Texas A&M jumped out to an early 4-0 lead on three hits and two Houston errors in the first inning.

Houston didn't waste much time responding as it went on to plate a pair of runs in the latter half of the second after Montemayor and Julks opened the inning with back-to-back singles. With runners at the corners, Julks quickly stole second and then the two moved up a base on a wild pitch -- scoring Montemayor to make it a 4-1 game.

Sophomore Clay Casey extended the inning with a walk, allowing Hollis to plate Julks on an RBI-sacrifice bunt to make it a two-run game in favor of the Aggies.

Texas A&M would extend its lead to 5-2 with a run in the top of the fifth following two singles and a passed ball.

Junior reliever Bubba Maxwell (2.0,4,1,1,1,4) took over for King in the sixth inning and worked around a jam, stranding a pair to escape and keep Texas A&M off the board. The Aggies would then extend their lead by four runs at 6-2 with a solo home run with one out in the seventh inning.

Maxwell struck out four in 2.0 innings, allowing one run on four hits and a walk.

Freshman Trey Cumbie (1.0,1,1,1,0,1), junior Nathan Jackson (0.0,0,0,0,2,0) and junior Nick Hernandez (1.0,0,0,0,0,1) all made appearances out of the bullpen.

Texas A&M reliever Brigham Hill (1.2,0,0,0,0,1) improved to 3-0 with the win out of the bullpen, while Mark Ecker (0.1,0,0,0,0,0) took over with the tying run on deck to earn the save -- his first.


POSTGAME QUOTES
On tonight's game
"I thought it was a great college baseball night. We had two really good teams in a heavy-weight fight. We got down early, but I'm proud of the way our guys fought to get back into the game. We created a hole for ourselves in that first inning, but we never stopped playing. We were a swing or two from tying up the game a couple of times and going ahead. We got a little something going there in the last inning, we didn't catch a break, but I am proud of the club for the way they fought all night."
