NUMBERS OF NOTE


4 Houston snapped its four-game home skid with a 4-1 win over McNeese to wrap up the five-game home slate.

8 The Cougars recorded eight hits, all coming after the sixth inning.

2 Chase Jensen drove in the winning-run in the sixth on a two-run single to right field, while Taylor White led Houston with two hits.

HOUSTON--The University of Houston baseball team made quick adjustments and responded late to earn a 4-1 victory over McNeese State in non-conference action at Cougar Field on Tuesday evening.

The Cougars snapped a four-game skid with the win and improved to 11-16 overall and 6-8 at home, while McNeese fell to 11-15.

A slow start for the Houston offense erupted late for eight hits as seven different players recorded at least one base knock. Houston was led by junior Taylor White (2x3, 2 R) who broke up the no-hitter in the bottom of the sixth with a bunt single to second base and eventually went on to notch another hit and score two runs for the Cougars. 

"I thought we played a great game. We were able to rebound from several tough losses of late," said head coach Todd Whitting. "We did a good job regrouping midway through the game and I thought we continued to play hard all night."

Junior Chase Jensen's two-run single down the right field line proved to be the game-winner as the shortstop took a 2-1 count to the right side, driving in two.

Also driving in runs were sophomore Landon Appling (1x3, RBI) and senior John Cannon (1x2, RBI, BB). Senior Jake Runte (1x3, R) and freshman Price Jacobs (1x3, R, 2B) who doubled, both scored a run in the win.

Houston and McNeese held each other scoreless through the first four frames as freshman starter Aaron Garza (5.2,4,1,1,2,4) tossed a 5.2 inning gem, allowing just one run on four scattered hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

"I thought Garza had a great start. He was able to push through that barrier and keep us in the game," said Whitting.

Senior Mo Wiley (3.1,3,0,0,0,4) fanned four in 3.1 innings and didn't allow a run on just three hits for his first win of the season and 11th of his career. With the win, Wiley improved to 1-0 on the season. 

"Wiley rebounded after a tough weekend and pitched a great game for us with a lot of command. We needed that," said Whitting.

Houston plated two runs in the sixth on two hits and two in the seventh on four hits for a 4-1 lead. McNeese threatened in the top of the ninth with a pinch-hit double with two outs. A single to right field looked like the Cowboys would make it a 4-2 game until junior Jacob Lueneburg fired home a bullet to Cannon, who made a nice tag to end the game.

"This was a huge win for us as we head into another tough weekend. I told the team we had to find anyway to win this game and we did. Taylor White came up huge getting that bunt down and Jensen's two-run single capped it for us. Overall, I am pleased," said Whitting.

UP NEXT
Houston will hit the road for a three-game series at East Carolina, beginning Thursday evening at 5 pm CT (6 pm ET). The series will continue on Friday at 5 pm CT (6 pm ET) and wrap up on Sunday at 9 am CT (10 am ET) in Greenville, NC.
