COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Freshman catcher Luis Flores went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBIs to help lead the University of Houston baseball team to a 9-6 win over Texas A&M on Tuesday in a non-conference game at Olsen Field.

Flores, who blasted two home runs in a game for the second time this season, was part of a Cougar offensive attack that pounded out double-digit hits and scored at least seven runs for the fifth consecutive game. UH took advantage of 14 hits, including four home runs, to avenge a 3-2 loss at the hands of the Aggies earlier this season at Cougar Field.

The Cougars, who are ranked No. 19 in the latest Collegiate Baseball poll, jumped out to a 5-1 lead after four-and-a-half innings before the Aggies rallied to tie the game with four runs in the fifth. UH answered with three runs of its own in the next half inning and never looked back in winning for the seventh time in the last 10 games in College Station, Texas.

Junior outfielder Jake Stewart went 3-for-6 with two runs and an RBI and finished just a home run short of hitting for the cycle. Senior infielder Isa Garcia batted 3-for-4 with three stolen bases and two RBIs, while sophomore outfielder Bryan Tully batted 2-for-4 with a run, double and RBI. Junior infielder Dustin Kingsbury also finished the night 2-for-5 with a double and run in the winning effort.

 

 

Senior southpaw Matt Farrington came out of the bullpen to earn the win, despite allowing two runs off three hits in one inning. Junior righthander Clayton Boone earned his team-leading fourth save after pitching the final two scoreless innings with a strikeout.

Texas A&M reliever Anthony Vasquez picked up his first decision of the season and dropped to 0-1 after allowing four runs off four hits in only 1.1 innings.

Outfielder Adam Hale batted 2-for-4 with a run, double and RBI, while infielder Parker Dalton finished the night 2-for-4 with a run to lead the Aggies.

With the win, the Cougars won for the 12th time in the last 15 games and improved to 25-15 overall. Texas A&M lost its seventh straight game and fell to 19-21.

The Cougars continue their 2006 C-USA schedule this weekend as they play host to Memphis in a three-game series. That series begins with 7 p.m. games on both Friday and Saturday before wrapping up at 1 p.m., Sunday.

All three games can be heard live over the Internet at www.UHCougars.com with former UH letterwinners Nick Torina and Pat Cauley calling all the action. Fans also can follow play-by-play action by clicking on the "Live Stats" link on the schedule at www.UHCougars.com.

The Aggies struck for the game's first run in the first inning when Jake Vasquez's sacrifice fly down the right-field line plated Jose Salazar.

The Cougars knotted the game at 1-1 in their next half-inning. Dustin Kingsbury led off with a double to the wall in right center and moved up a base following a wild pitch. After fouling off several pitches, Bryan Tully then slapped a single into right center to plate Kingsbury.

UH grabbed its first lead in the top of the third. Jake Stewart reached on an infield error and stole second to move into scoring position. Isa Garcia then slapped a single into right center to score Stewart and hand UH a 2-1 lead.

The Cougars used the long ball in the fourth inning. Josh Stirneman led off with a monster homer to center field, while Luis Flores followed two batters later with a solo shot over the left-field fence.

Texas A&M took advantage of five hits, a sacrifice fly and wild pitch in the fifth inning to tie the game at 5-5. Austin Boggs lifted a sacrifice fly to start the rally, and Blake Stouffer scored on a wild pitch to pull the Aggies to within 5-3. Adam Hale then laced an RBI-double down the right-field line, and Kyle Colligan's RBI-single up the middle plated Hale to tie the game at 5-5.

The UH offense erupted for three runs off four hits in the next half inning, though. Bryan Tully led off with a double down the left field line before Flores launched a towering homer to left field. Two batters later, Stewart ripped a triple to left center and scored easily when Garcia slapped an RBI-single up the middle past a drawn-in Aggie infield.

UH added to its lead one inning later. Stirneman drew a leadoff walk and moved into scoring position following Tully' sacrifice bunt. After a wild pitch, Stewart laced an RBI-single into right field to plate Stirneman and give the Cougars a 9-5 advantage.

Craig Stinson's sacrifice fly to left field in the seventh pulled the Aggies to within 9-6.
