GREENVILLE, N.C. -- The Houston offense put together a 10-hit day and freshman starter Mitch Ullom was dominant as the No. 15 Cougars rebounded to win the series finale at No. 19 East Carolina, 6-1, on Sunday at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

With the Sunday win, Houston moved to 17-10 on the year and 1-2 in American Athletic Conference, while the Pirates fell to 19-9 and 2-1.


ON DECK
The Cougars will travel to Lake Charles, La. to take on McNeese State in a 6 p.m. matchup Tuesday before returning home to host UCF in an American Athletic Conference weekend series, April 8-10.


ON THE BUMP BREAKDOWN
Mitch Ullom -- 7.1 IP / 7 H / 1 R / 1 BB / 4 K
Bubba Maxwell -- 1.2 IP / 0 H / 0 R / 1 BB / 1 K

TOP OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCES
Josh Vidales -- 2-for-3 / 3 RBI / BB
Connor Hollis -- 1-for-4 / 2 RBI
Michael Pyeatt -- 2-for-5
Connor Wong -- 2-for-5 / R
Corey Julks -- 1-for-4 / 2 R / BB
Zac Taylor -- 1-for-5 / 2 R / 3 SB
Jacob Campbell -- 1-for-4

Ullom (7.1,7,1,1,1,4) was dominant in his start vs. the Pirates, surrendering just one run on seven hits and one walk with four strikeouts in 7.1 innings to move to 4-1 on the year.

He held the hot-hitting ECU offense to one run and managed to limit the number of base runners, inducing two key double plays.

Junior reliever Bubba Maxwell (1.2,0,0,0,1,1) finished the game, tossing 1.2 hitless frames with one walk and one strikeout.

Houston racked up a 10-hit game, led by three Cougars with a multi-hit game and two with a multi-RBI game.

Senior Josh Vidales led the way, driving in three RBI on two hits and a sacrifice bunt, while sophomore Connor Hollis went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored.

Sophomore Connor Wong went 2-for4 with two runs scored and senior Michael Pyeatt went 2-for-5 for a multi-hit game. Sophomores Zac Taylor (1x5, 2 R) and Corey Julks (1x4, 2 R) each scored two runs on a hit, while Taylor had three stolen bases.

Houston used a three-run second inning to take the early lead on East Carolina as Julks opened the frame with a leadoff walk. He moved to second on a sacrifice bunt from Campbell, and later scored on an RBI-double by Hollis to make it 1-0.

The inning continued when Taylor reached on an error and stole second. With runners at second and third with one out, Vidales laid down a perfect suicide squeeze, scoring Hollis and Taylor from second to take a 3-0 lead.

East Carolina scratched a run across in the third following a two-hit inning to make it a 3-1 game.

Houston would extend its lead to 4-1 with another run in the fourth when Taylor reached on a two-out error, stole second and took third on a throwing error. He would later score on Vidales' third RBI of the game.

The Cougars came out swinging in the fifth when Wong doubled with one out. Julks followed with a bloop single to put runners at the corners. Campbell would swing and miss, reach first on the wild pitch, scoring Julks for the 5-1 lead. Hollis was then robbed of a base hit, but would score Julks for the 6-1 advantage.

East Carolina starter Jacob Wolfe (4.1,7,6,3,2,1) suffered the loss, falling to 3-3 on the year.


POST-GAME QUOTE
Head Coach Todd Whitting
On today's 6-1 win over ECU
"That was a big win for us today against a really good ECU team. That is one of the better teams in the country. To come in here and scrap one after falling into a little bit of tough-luck during the first two days, was big. Mitch Ullom was huge for us today. I thought he pitched really, really well. Bubba [Maxwell] coming out of the bullpen was really good.

" We did some things on offense that allowed us to generate some runs. I thought we were aggressive and it worked. I'm just proud of the guys after having two tough losses, coming back and getting the big win in the series finale."
