NUMBERS OF NOTE


1 Sophomore pitcher Aaron Garza allowed just one walk in his 7.1 innings pitched.

7.1 The 7.1 innings pitched by Aaron Garza is a new career high for the sophomore. His previous high of 6.0 innings came in the first game against Sam Houston on Feb. 15.

10 Tonight marks the 10th time this season Cougar pitching has allowed 1 or less walks in a game.

 
Despite the loss, Houston still holds a 23-7 overall record and a 15-3 mark in front of a home crowd this season, while the Bearkats improve to 16-12 overall - splitting the season series with the Cougars.
 
Houston starter Aaron Garza (7.1,6,4,3,1,2) showed well despite allowing two earned runs in the second. The righty settled in and shut down 10 straight Bearkats, but was tagged with the loss - falling to 3-2 on the year. He allowed three earned runs on six hits and one walk with two strikeouts.
 
The Cougars tallied five hits, led by junior Caleb Barker's two-hit effort. Junior Frankie Ratcliff (1x4, RBI) drove in Houston's only run on a single to left, while freshman Kyle Kirk (1x3, R) and sophomore pinch hitter Chris Waylock (1x1) each added a hit.
 
Sam Houston State jumped out to an early 3-0 lead on two hits, a walk and two hit-by-pitches in the third. Garza and company would settle in and come away with four straight scoreless innings, while plating their only run in the fourth on an RBI-single off the bat of Ratcliff, plating Kirk from third.
 
Houston bullpen featured junior Tyler Ford (0.2,0,0,0,0,1), senior Ryan Bonnot (0.2,1,0,0,0,0) and sophomore Logan Piper (0.1,0,0,0,0,0).
