Baseball Splits Twinbill with Cincinnati on Sunday

April 3, 2005

Final Stats

CINCINNATI, Ohio - University of Houston sophomore shortstop Dustin Kingsbury with 5-for-5 with two home runs and eight RBIs to lead the Cougars to a 14-1 win over Conference USA rival Cincinnati in the nightcap of a doubleheader Sunday at the UC Baseball Stadium.

The win helped the Cougars split the twinbill with the Bearcats, who claimed a 2-1 win earlier in the day. With the split, the Cougars improved to 12-16 overall and 5-3 in C-USA play. Cincinnati dropped to 10-14 overall and 1-7 in C-USA play.

With five hits, Kingsbury became the 22nd player in school history to accomplish that feat. His RBI total was the second-highest in UH single-game history, trailing only the nine RBIs recorded by Bobby Hollas against Northwestern State on March 6, 1979.

Kingsbury was part of a Cougar offensive explosion in the nightcap as UH erupted for nine runs through the first three innings alone and 13 hits in only seven innings of work. He blasted a two-run homer in the Cougars' first at bat in the second game and then iced the game in the top of the seventh with a grand slam.

However, it was a consistent effort by the entire UH lineup as no other Cougar slugger recorded more than one hit in the game.

UH starter Brad Lincoln won his second straight game and improved to 3-4 after holding the Bearcats to only one run off six hits with six strikeouts in five innings of work. UC starter Kevin Schrader dropped to 1-3 after giving up four runs off two hits in only 0.2 innings.

Unfortunately, the Cougar bats were silent in the first game. UC starter Tony Maynard improved to 4-1 after holding the Cougars to only one run off four hits with three strikeouts through the first five innings. Reliever Josh Kay allowed only one hit over the final two innings to record the save and help UC break a seven-game losing streak to the Cougars.

UH starter Matt Farrington allowed two runs off six hits with a pair of strikeouts in 3.2 innings to collect his first loss of the season and see his personal-best five-game winning streak snapped.

 

 

Mark Haske gave Cincinnati a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning after Mark Haske's double to left center plated Mark Muscenti, who led off the frame with a double of his own down the left field line.

UH rallied to tie the game in their next at-bat when Kingsbury's one-out sacrifice fly scored Brad Lincoln, who led off with a double.

However, the Bearcats answered in the bottom of the inning and took the lead for good when Muscenti's RBI-single up the middle scored Erik Eitel who reached on a one-out, infield single. The Cougars threatened to tie the game in the top of the sixth after the first two runners reached base. However, following a pitching change, Kay induced a pair of groundouts and fly-ball out to end the UH rally.

Junior infielder Kevin Roberts went 0-for-1 to see his UH season- and career-best 13-game hitting streak come to an end. It tied as the 22nd longest hitting streak in school history.

Sophomore infielder Brad Lincoln went 1-for-2 with the lone run but saw his streak of eight consecutive games with at least one RBI come to an end.

Muscenti went 3-for-3 with a run and RBI, while Eitel batted 2-for-3 with a run to lead Cincinnati, which outhit the Cougars 7-5.

The Cougars return to action at 6 p.m., Tuesday, when they meet Baylor at the Baylor Ballpark in Waco, Texas. The game can be heard live on KLVL 1480 AM and on the Internet at www.UHCougars.com with former UH letterwinners Nick Torina and Pat Cauley calling all the action.
