NUMBERS OF NOTE


6.0 Jordan Mannisto's 6.0 innings pitched was a career-long outing for the junior right-hander in a Houston uniform.

3 Sophomore Landon Appling recorded a career-high three stolen bases in Friday's win. The last time any Cougar stole at least three bases came back on April 1, 2010 when Joel Ansley swiped four bags against UAB.

3 Senior reliever Mo Wiley struck out the side in back-to-back innings and fanned three straight in the top of the ninth. The last time a Cougar reliever struck out the side was when Wiley accomplished that feat on May 1, 2010 against UAB in the 9th inning.

HOUSTON--Junior Chase Jensen drove in two of Houston's three runs including the game winner on a single up the middle in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Cougars over Marshall, 3-2, on Friday evening in C-USA play at Cougar Field.

The win for Houston snapped a four-game skid that dated back to last Friday evening at Texas Tech. With the win, the Cougars improved to 13-22-1 overall and 2-7-1 in conference play, while Marshall dropped to 13-24 and 1-9. 

"I thought it was a great team effort tonight. We hung in there after a long delay and played well and we had great starting pitching. I was nice to see us get a clutch hit with runners in scoring position to win a game," said head coach Todd Whitting.

Houston connected on 11 hits, while Marshall was held to just four--a season low for Houston's pitching staff. The Cougars top four hitters combined for eight of Houston's 11 hits as each one recorded a multi-hit game with two hits apiece. 

Jensen led the offense with a 2-for-4 effort, one run scored and two RBI, while sophomore Landon Appling (2x4, 2 R, BB, 3 SB) tallied two hits, scored two runs and stole three bases, a career-high. Juniors Jacob Lueneburg (2x5) and Casey Grayson (2x4, RBI) each had two hits, while Grayson drove in Houston's other run. Also connecting on two hits was freshman Michael Pyeatt (2x4), while senior John Cannon (1x4) tallied the Cougars only other hit.

In just his second start of the season, junior Jordan Mannisto (6.0,3,1,1,4,1) was extremely solid, pitching a career-long 6.0 innings, allowing just three hits and one run, while walking four and fanning one. The 6.0 innings surpassed his previous which came in his last start at Texas Tech, going 4.1 innings as the starter. 

Senior Mo Wiley (3.0,1,1,1,2,7) struck out seven in just 3.0 short innings of relief. The righty allowed one run on one hit and two walks. As the pitcher of record, Wiley would record his second win of the season to improve to 2-0. 

Houston jumped on board early with two runs in the third frame following three hits, including an RBI-double from Jensen and RBI-single by Grayson. Mannisto and his defense kept Marshall scoreless through five innings until the Thundering Herd struck for one run in the sixth after a leadoff walk and a single through the right side.

Marshall had a chance in the fifth to score as well after a leadoff double, but back-to-back groundouts induced by Mannisto and a sneaky 1-2-5 pickoff to end the inning kept Houston ahead.

Up 2-1, Houston allowed two walks and a two-out RBI-single to Marshall, which tied the game at 2-2 in the eighth inning. Houston then stranded two runners late in the game, but came through in the ninth when Appling got things rolling with a one-out single up the middle. The speedster stole his third base of the game, while Lueneburg followed with an infield single to put runners at first and second with one out for Jensen. Jensen then took advantage of a 1-0 pitch, sending it up the middle for an RBI-single and the game winner.

Note: Friday's game began at 8:45 p.m. following a 2 hour and 15 minute rain delay. 

UP NEXT
Houston and Marshall will continue the three-game set on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at Cougar Field and will wrap up on Sunday at 11 a.m. Tickets are available and can be purchased at the Box Office.
