NUMBERS OF NOTE


2 Senior Jordan Lewis pitched a 7.0 inning, two-hit gem. UAB was held to just two hits in a combined pitching effort by Lewis and Mo Wiley.

9 With Landon Appling's single on Sunday, the sophomore extended his hit streak to a career-high nine games, dating back to the second game at Texas Tech.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--Senior Jordan Lewis pitched a 7.0 inning, two-hit gem, but the University of Houston baseball team dropped a 1-0 heartbreaker in the series finale at UAB on Sunday afternoon in C-USA action.

Houston was swept in the weekend road series and falls to 14-26-1 overall and 3-11-1 in conference play, while UAB improves to 26-20 and 7-8. 

Lewis (7.0,2,1,0,5,5) pitched exceptionally well, allowing just one unearned run on two hits and five walks with five strikeouts. Despite the great outing by the southpaw, four Cougar errors were tallied behind Lewis, allowing UAB to plate its only run of the game in the fifth inning. Suffering the loss, Lewis fell to 3-6 on the year.

 Houston outhit UAB, 5-2. Freshman Zack Gibson led the way offensively for the Cougars with a 2-for-4 effort at the plate. Sophomore Landon Appling (1x3) extended his hit streak to nine consecutive games, a career-high with his single, while senior John Cannon (1x3) and junior Taylor White (1x3) contributed with the only other two base hits for Houston.

UAB scored the game's only run in the fifth inning as the Blazers led off with a leadoff double and took third on a throwing error by Houston. An RBI-groundout followed to put UAB on board. 

Houston never threatened until the ninth inning as UAB starter Michael Busby (9.0,5,0,0,1,5) held the Cougars scoreless and with just five scattered hits with five strikeouts for the win. 

The Cougars were able to get two on with two outs in the ninth when junior pinch hitter Casey Grayson walked and Gibson singled, but freshman Cory Kay's deep liner to left field was snagged for the final out of the game.

Senior Mo Wiley (1.0,0,0,0,0,0) tossed a hitless eighth inning for Houston. Both Lewis and Wiley combined for a two-hitter. The last time Houston had two pitchers combine for a two-hitter came back on Feb. 24, 2012 against Texas State at Cougar Field when senior Jared Ray and junior Jordan Mannisto held the Bobcats to two base knocks.

Houston will return to Cougar Field to host UTSA on Tuesday, May 1 at 6:30 p.m.
