Early Runs Lead to Win for Baseball over Cincinnati on Friday

April 19, 2002

Box Score

HOUSTON, Texas - The University of Houston baseball team struck for eight runs in the first two innings and never looked back in taking a 10-2 win over Cincinnati in the opener of a Conference USA series at Cougar Field on Friday.

With the win, the Cougars, ranked No. 7 in the latest Baseball America poll, extended their C-USA home winning streak to 26 straight games dating back to the 2000 season and won their 10th straight home game overall in improving to 28-11 overall, 12-4 in league play. The Bearcats dropped to 16-20-1 overall and 4-11-1 in league play.

UH also jumped into sole possession of first place in C-USA play after TCU dropped an 8-5 decision at Tulane on Friday.

Chris Snyder went 2-for-2 with two runs and a game-high five RBIs, while Brett Cooley batted 3-for-5 with a run, home run and three RBIs to extend his hitting streak to a career-best 10 games in the win. UH pounded out 14 hits in the game, including three for extra bases.

All but three Cougar starters recorded hits in the game. Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI, while Anthony Scalise batted 2-for-2 with a run. Keith Whatley, Jesse Crain and Hyung Cho also pounded out hits in the game.

Sophomore righthander Brad Sullivan continued his dominance this season, striking out 12 batters while holding the Bearcats to only four hits and one run in eight innings. Sullivan recorded his seventh straight win to improve to 7-0 and has now thrown 103 strikeouts, the fifth-highest total in UH single-season history.

 

 

The series continues at 7 p.m. Saturday and wraps up at noon Sunday at Cougar Field. Sunday's game is an hour earlier from UH's regular starting time due to Cincinnati's travel arrangements. Fans can hear the game on KGBC Radio 1540 AM.

The Cougars took the lead in their first at-bat when Snyder launched a two-run home run -- his seventh homer of the season -- over the left field fence.

In the second inning, UH broke the game open with six runs. After three straight hits and an infield groundout to start the inning, Snyder struck again with a two- RBI single up the middle. Cooley then blasted a towering home run - his team-leading 11th of the year - to left field for an 8-0 UH lead.

In the bottom of the frame, UH added two more runs on Cole Bruce's triple to center field and Snyder's sacrifice fly.

Joe List accounted for all of the Cincinnati's runs in the game, tallying a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning and blasting a solo homer in the ninth.
