Baseball Takes 9-3 Win over No. 15 Baylor on Tuesday

April 5, 2005

Final Stats

WACO, Texas - University of Houston junior righthander Kevin Roberts struck out six and allowed only two unearned runs over six innings to lead the Cougars to a 9-3 win over No. 15 Baylor on Tuesday at Baylor Ballpark.

Roberts, who improved to 3-1 and won his second straight decision, struck out at least one batter in each of the first three innings and did not allow any runners to reach beyond second base with the exception of the third inning when the Bears struck for their only two runs.

Houston (13-16) jumped out to a 5-0 lead after the first two-and-a-half innings and never looked back in winning their second straight game.

Meanwhile, the Cougar offense rapped out 10 hits with four of those going for extra bases. Freshman outfielder Kori Williams went 3-for-4 with a run, RBI and two doubles to lead the way, while junior catcher Brett Logan went 2-for-5 with an RBI. Sophomore infielder Brad Lincoln went 1-for-4 with two runs and a pair of RBIs to extend his hitting streak to a career-best seven straight games and has recorded at least one RBI in 10 of the Cougars' last 11 games.

The Cougar win snapped a unique streak in the all-time recent history against the Bears. Since 1997, the team that has won the first meeting between the two teams has gone on to win the remaining games later that same season. Baylor claimed an 8-6 win over the Cougars on Feb. 11 in the season opener at the Minute Maid Park College Classic.

The seven-run victory was the biggest by the Cougars against Baylor since taking a 13-2 win on April 18, 2000, and the biggest win in Waco since a 12-5 decision on April 2, 1997.

Baylor starter Andy Pape dropped to 1-1 after giving up five runs off four hits with three strikeouts in 2.1 innings of work.

 

 

The Cougars return to Conference USA action this weekend as they play host to league rival Louisville in a three-game series at Cougar Field. That series begins with 7 p.m. games on both Friday and Saturday before wrapping up at 1 p.m., Sunday.

The Cougars jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning. Dustin Kingsbury led off with a walk and raced all the way to third base on Kori Williams' looping double down the left field line. Two batters later, Bryan Pounds laced a single up the middle to score both runners and give UH its first lead.

One inning later, UH pushed its lead to 5-0 after a pair of hits. Travis Tully led off with a walk and stole second base to move into scoring position. Following a walk to Brad Lincoln, Kingsbury ripped a single into right field to score Tully. Williams followed with another double into left field to score Lincoln, and Brett Logan's groundout allowed Kingsbury to score from third base.

Baylor put two runs in the bottom of the inning when Josh Ford blasted a two-run homer over the left-field wall.

Two innings later, the Cougars used a power surge of their own to push their lead to 7-2. After Roberts led off with a single to right field, Lincoln blasted a Bullock offering over the wall in right center.

In the sixth inning, Pounds reached on an infield error to lead off and moved to second base following Stephen Whalen's sacrifice bunt. After a walk to Mark McGonigle, Tully reached on a fielder's choice and moved up to second on a Baylor infield error, which allowed Pounds to score an unearned run from third base.

The Cougars added another run in the seventh inning. After Dustin Kingsbury was hit by a pitch and Williams and Brett Logan slapped back-to-back singles to load the bases, Pounds drew a one-out walk to push the UH lead to 9-2.

In the ninth, Baylor added another run on Kevin Sevigny's sacrifice fly but that would be as close as the Bears would get the rest of the way.
