ON DECK
Houston will hit the road for a three-game American Athletic Conference series at Tulane this weekend. The series is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday, continue at 4 p.m. Saturday and wrap at 1 p.m. Sunday in New Orleans, La.


ON THE BUMP BREAKDOWN
Trey Cumbie -- 7.2 IP / 6 H / 2 R / 0 BB / 5 K
Nick Hernandez -- 1.1 IP / 1 H / 1 R / 0 ER

TOP OFFENSIVE PERFORMANCES
Connor Wong -- 1-for-4 / 2 RBI
Corey Julks -- 3-for-4 / 2 R
Jacob Campbell -- 0-for-3 / R / RBI
Josh Vidales -- 2-for-4
Connor Hollis -- 1-for-3
Justin Montemayor -- 0-for-2 / R / RBI

Cumbie (7.2,6,2,2,0,5), in his first career start, lasted a career-long 7.2 innings, tied his career high in strikeouts with five and allowed just two runs on six hits with no walks to move to 2-1 on the year.

Junior Nick Hernandez (1.1,1,1,0,0,0) picked up his seventh save of the year, tossing the final 1.1 innings, surrendering an unearned run on one hit to preserve Houston's win late.

The Houston offense tallied seven hits, led by sophomore Corey Julks' 3-for-4 effort with two runs scored. Sophomore Connor Wong extended his on-base streak to eight games, tallying a hit and driving in a pair of RBI.

Senior Josh Vidales continued his hot-hitting of late, racking up two hits and seniors Justin Montemayor and Jacob Campbell each drove in a run on a sacrifice fly and fielder's choice, respectively.

Sam Houston State had three consecutive hits that led to one run in the top of the second inning, but Cumbie was able to induce an inning-ending double play, highlighted by a leaping catch from Hollis at shortstop to keep the Bearkats off the board.

Houston quickly responded with a three-spot as Julks and Vidales opened up the half inning with back-to-back singles. Montemayor then loaded the bases with a walk and Julks came around to score on a RBI-fielder's choice from Campbell.

Tied at 1-1 and two outs in the inning, Wong singled up the middle -- plating both Montemayor and Campbell to give the Cougars the early 3-1 lead.

Cumbie shut down Sam Houston State in order over the third and fourth innings before a two-out home run by the Bearkats made it a 3-2 game in favor of Houston.

It didn't take long for the Cougars to bring their lead back to two (4-2) when Montemayor plated Julks on a sacrifice fly after Julks doubled for his third hit of the game and moved to third on a Vidales single.

Cumbie showed well in his first start, pitching two outs into the eighth inning before handing the ball to junior closer Hernandez, who worked the final 1.1 innings in relief.

Sam Houston State scored a run in the top of the ninth after a leadoff single and error.

Sam Houston State starter Spence Rahm (1.2,3,3,3,2,0) lasted just 1.2 innings, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks to fall to 0-4 on the year.


POSTGAME QUOTE
Head Coach Todd Whitting
On tonight's 4-3 win over Sam Houston State
"Really proud of (Trey) Cumbie. He is a freshman that went out and pitched a great game. He gets us to the eighth inning with a lead. That was great composure for a freshman. As he gets better, he's going to be the next great one in this program. (Nick) Hernandez came in and did a good job on the backside there. (Corey) Julks had a couple of big knocks. Offensively we had a couple of tough breaks, but we battled really well against a good Sam Houston State team."
