Houston starter Mitch Ullom ran into a bit of trouble in the fourth as Memphis scored six runs on six hits. He would hand the ball over to teammate Fred Villarreal, who ended up working 3.1 innings in relief.

Villarreal would allow just one run on one hit with one walk and two strikeouts in 3.1 innings out of the bullpen, but was tagged with the loss after hitting the go-ahead runner to leadoff the eighth inning. He fell to 1-1 with the loss.

Sophomore Aaron Fletcher took over in the eighth, but would surrender one earned run on three hits with one strikeout.


KEY INNINGS
2nd | Memphis jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second with a solo home run.

3rd | Houston tied the game in the top of the third on Champion's first career hit -- a solo home run to left center.

4th | Memphis used a six-hit, six-run fourth inning to go ahead of the Cougars, 7-1.

5th | The Cougars quickly responded to Memphis' big inning with one of their own, scoring four runs in the fifth, highlighted by a bases-clearing triple by Julks. The inning began with a single by Hollis and a walk by Champion. With two outs, Davis drove in Hollis for the second run of the game and Scheiner loaded the bases with a walk for Julks.

6th | Houston had a chance to take the lead in the sixth, but would only bring across one run after loading the bases. The run came on an RBI by Wong, who reached on an error, scoring Lockhart -- who singled to open the inning, making it a 7-6 game lead by the Tigers.

8th | Houston tied the game at 7-7 on a two-out RBI-single by Bielamowicz, scoring Hollis -- who led off the inning with a walk, moved to second on a sac bunt by Champion and to third on a wild pitch.

Memphis retook the lead with a run in the eighth after leadoff hitter was hit and came around to score. The Tigers would score three in the frame to take a 10-7 lead.

9th | With two outs in the ninth, Lockhart would single in Triolo on a base hit into right center, but the rallied would end there.
