Baseball Falls to Louisville on Saturday

Final Stats

HOUSTON - Louisville managed to score runs in only one inning but it would prove to be enough as the Cardinals took a 3-2 win over the University of Houston baseball team Saturday in the second game of a Conference USA series at Cougar Field.

As they did in the first game of the series, the Cougars (14-17, 6-4 C-USA) struck for the game's first runs in their first at bat. Travis Tully led off with a single and came around to score two batters later when Dustin Kingsbury blasted an 0-2 offering from Valdes off the wall in left center.

The score stayed that way until the sixth inning when the Cardinals took the lead with three runs off four hits. Nick Haley's double down the left field line plated Chris Cates who led off with an infield single to cut the Cougar lead in half. After a single by J.T. LaFountain put runners on first and third, Jorge Castillo laced a double down the right-field line to plate both runners and give UL a 3-2 lead.

That would be all the run support that Louisville starter Justin Valdes and relievers Griffin Bailey and Brian Halford needed to take the win. Valdes collected the win and improved to 1-3 after limiting the Cougars to only two runs off six hits with three strikeouts in six innings of work. After giving up two runs in the first inning, the sophomore righthander gave up only four more runs over his last five shutout innings.

Meanwhile, Bailey entered the game in the seventh inning and held the Cougars to only one hit over two innings, and Halford retired the Cougar side in order in the ninth inning for his fourth save this season.

UH starter Brad Lincoln dropped to 3-5 after giving up three runs off six hits with six strikeouts in 7.2 innings of work. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the sophomore righthander.

Tully went 2-for-4 with a triple and run to lead the Cougar offense which outhit Louisville 3-2. Kingsbury led all UH players with a pair of RBIs.
