Box Score

ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Keith Whatley went 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs and an RBI to help lead the University of Houston baseball team to a 9-5 win in six innings over Saint Louis on Sunday in game two of a Conference USA series at the Billiken Sports Center.

UH (32-12, 15-5 C-USA) was scheduled to play a doubleheader Sunday, but heavy rain in St. Louis on Saturday saturated the field, forcing SLU personnel to work on the field until around 4 p.m. Sunday. The game was also called after six innings due to UH travel plans Sunday night.

Chris Snyder also went 3-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs to pace the Cougar offense which pounded out 11 hits in the game, marking the sixth straight game and the 11th time in the last 12 games that UH recorded at least 10 hits.

Brett Cooley launched his team-leading 13th home run of the season in the third inning to extend his hitting streak to a career-best and UH-season-best-tying 15-game hitting streak. In addition, the Round Rock, Texas, native recorded at least one RBI for the 12th consecutive game.

UH reliever Nathan Mitchell collected the win to improve to 3-1, while SLU starter Corey Lawson dropped to 6-3 with the loss.

UH jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Jesse Crain blasted a 1-0 offering from Lawson over the left center fence. In the third inning, UH added to its lead with runs, thanks to Chris Snyder's RBI-single and a two-run home run from Cooley.

One inning later, Snyder struck again for the Cougars with a two-RBI double to left field. However, Saint Louis responded with two runs of its own on RBI singles from Jim Bredenkoetter and Lawson.

 

 

Hyung Cho pushed the Cougar advantage to 6-2 in the fifth inning with an RBI double in the left center gap to score Anthony Scalise, who reached on an SLU infield error. Once again, the Billikens answered, scoring a run in the bottom of the frame on Ryan Murphy's RBI-double.

Whatley led off the Cougar sixth inning with a home run to right center, and Crain's sacrifice fly scored Snyder for UH's final run of the game. In the bottom of the inning, the Billikens scored two more runs, thanks to two UH wild pitchers with runners at third base. However, that would be as close as SLU would get.

The Cougars continue their season at 7 p.m. Tuesday as they play host to Texas-San Antonio at Cougar Field.
