NUMBERS OF NOTE


3 Three of Houston's eight hits were doubles as Landon Appling, John Cannon, and Jake Runte all recorded a two-base knock.

6 Houston drew six walks during the game, two coming from sophomore Jonathan Davis, a career-high.

11 Houston stranded 11 base runners against Sam Houston State.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas—A game that saw its ups and downs, the University of Houston baseball team battled back from an early 3-0 deficit to eventually fall 5-4 to No. 24 Sam Houston State on the road on Tuesday evening in non-conference action.

Houston fell to 12-22-1 overall, while the Bearkats improved to 26-10 and have now won 15 of their last 16 games. With the win for Sam Houston State, the season series between the two teams comes to an even 1-1 tie as the Cougars earned a 12-2 victory earlier this season at Cougar Field.

The Bearkats jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the second inning following five hits, including an RBI-single that was inches from rolling foul down the third base line to plate their third run. Sophomore reliever Chase Wellbrock came into the game in relief of Houston starter Aaron Garza and worked out of an inherited jam to strand the bases loaded in that frame to keep the Cougars within three heading into the third.

Sam Houston State starter Michael Oros (4.0,2,0,0,4,4) pitched well and kept Houston off balance despite walking four in 4.0 innings of work. The Cougars were held scoreless until they struck for a run in the fifth and one in the sixth off reliever Jordan Bunch (2.0,2,2,2,1,1) following RBI hits from seniors Codey Morehouse and Jake Runte.

Houston’s bullpen shut down the Bearkats for four straight innings, led by Wellbrock (2.1,4,0,0,1,1) and senior Jared Ray (3.0,4,2,2,1,1), but Sam Houston would extend its 3-2 lead with a run in the seventh. The Cougars used a leadoff double off the bat of senior John Cannon, a sacrifice bunt by junior Jacob Lueneburg and an RBI-groundout by sophomore Jonathan Davis to make it a 4-3 game.

A huge insurance run by the Bearkats in the eighth after a leadoff triple put the home team up by two heading into Houston’s final at-bat. The Cougars did all they could as leadoff hitter Landon Appling doubled down the left field line to open the frame. A bloop single by freshman Michael Pyeatt put runners at first and third with no outs. Following a strikeout, Morehouse came up big, again, and singled through the left side to plate Appling and extend the inning. Down 5-4, Bearkat reliever Michael Burchett induced a final flyout and groundout for his fifth save of the season.

Houston tallied eight hits, led by Morehouse (2x4, 2 RBI, BB), Appling (2x3, R, 2 HBP), and Runte (2x3, RBI, BB) all with two hits each.

Sam Houston State finished with 12 hits. Oros picked up the win after a predetermined pitch count was set for the starter, while Garza (1.2,4,3,3,0,1) suffered the loss for Houston, falling to 1-4 on the season. 

UP NEXT
Houston will return home for a three-game C-USA series vs. Marshall this weekend. The Cougars and Thundering Herd will meet on Friday at 6:30 p.m., followed by a 6:30 p.m. game on Saturday before wrapping up on Sunday at 11 a.m.  Fans can follow the action at UHCougars.com via live audio and GameTracker or on Twitter @UHCougarBB.
