NUMBERS OF NOTE


4 John Cannon produced a career-high four RBIs in Saturday's loss at UAB. The senior surpassed his previous high of three runs driven in, which came three times over his career--last against Tennessee at the Houston College Classic on March 2, 2012.

8 With Landon Appling's two hits on Saturday, the sophomore extended his hit streak to a career-high eight games, dating back to the second game at Texas Tech.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The University of Houston baseball team fell down 8-0 after three innings to UAB, but rallied back to pull within two following a four-run eighth, though eventually dropped Game 2 of the series, 12-8, on Saturday afternoon in C-USA action.

Houston fell to 14-25-1 overall and 3-10-1 in league play with the loss, while the Blazers improved to 25-20 and 6-8.

The Cougars tallied 13 hits for the second straight game. Senior John Cannon (2x5, R, 4 RBI) led the offensive attack with two hits, one run scored and a career-high four RBI. Junior Taylor White (3x5, R, RBI) tied his career-high in hits with three base knocks, which came last against Sam Houston State on March 10, 2009.

Also producing a multi-hit game for Houston was sophomore Landon Appling (2x5, RBI) who extended his hit streak to eight games, while sophomore Jonathan Davis (2x5, 2 R) and junior Jacob Lueneburg (2x5, 2 R, RBI) also chipped in with two hits.

UAB came out of the gate swinging as it plated eight runs in the first three innings on eight hits before the Houston pitching staff was able to settle down and keep the Blazers under control. All six runs scored in the second and third innings were with two outs in the frame.

Down 8-0, Houston was held scoreless until it struck for one run in the sixth following a leadoff double by White, who scored on a fielding error by UAB. The Cougars added another run in the seventh on a two-out RBI-single by Appling and went on to produce a four-run eighth on five hits.

Runte, Davis, and Lueneburg set the table for Cannon all with three consecutive singles to open the eighth. Cannon then cleared the bases on a three-run double to right center to make it an 8-5 game. With one out and Cannon at second, White singles down the right field line to give the Cougars a four-spot late in the game.

UAB then responded with four runs of its own on four hits, including two infield singles to extend its lead to 12-6 following a strong Houston rally. The Cougars were down to their last chance in the ninth when with two outs when Davis singles and scores on a double off the left center wall by Lueneburg before Cannon’s single drives in Lueneburg for the final Cougar run.

Houston starter Jordan Mannisto (1.2,5,5,5,2,1) lasted just 1.2 innings, allowing five runs on five hits and two walks with one strikeout for the loss, falling to 1-3 on the year. Pitching well out of the Cougar bullpen was freshman Ryan Vruggink (3.1,1,0,0,2,2) who tossed a game-high 3.1 innings, surrendering just one hit and two walks with two strikeouts. He managed to keep the UAB hitters off balance and without a run through the third, fourth and fifth frames.

UP NEXT
