Final Stats

FORT WORTH, Texas - No. 28 TCU scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to break a tie on the way to a 9-6 win over the University of Houston baseball team Saturday in the middle game of a Conference USA series at Lupton Stadium.

After the Cougars tied the game in the top of the seventh inning with four runs, the Horned Frogs put four runs of their own on the scoreboard. Matt Carpenter's two-run single up the middle scored Matt McGuirk and J.J. Estrada to break the tie, and Stuart Musslewhite eventually followed with a two-run double to right field, scoring pinch runner Jerid Buttell and Carpenter, to ice the win.

The loss spoiled the performance of UH freshman outfielder Chris Joseph went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and teamed with Travis Tully on back-to-back homers in the top of the seventh to tie the game at 5-5. Travis Tully finished the day 2-for-5 with a run and three RBIs, while freshman outfielder Bryan Tully, no relation to Travis, went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs and an RBI to lead the Cougars.

With the loss, the Cougars dropped their third consecutive game and fell to 18-24 overall, 9-10 in C-USA play. TCU, which won its fourth straight game against UH dating back to last season, improved to 31-13 overall, 15-5 in C-USA games.

UH starter Brad Lincoln dropped to 4-6 after surrendering nine runs (six earned) off 10 hits with six strikeouts in 6.1 innings. TCU starter Ryan Nesloney collected his first win of the season and improved to 1-0 after limiting UH to

 

 

TCU shortstop Stuart Musslewhite went 3-for-5 with a double, run and two RBIs to lead the TCU offense which outhit the Cougars 11-9. Center fielder Keith Conlon went 2-for-5 with an RBI, and first baseman Matt Carpenter batted 2-for-5 with two runs and two RBIs.

The series wraps up at 1 p.m., Sunday. That game can be heard live on KGBC 1540 AM and on the Internet at www.UHCougars.com with former UH letterwinners Nick Torina and Pat Cauley calling all the action. Fans also can follow all the action by clicking on the Gametracker link at www.UHCougars.com.

The Horned Frogs took grabbed the early lead with four runs in the second inning off four hits, a walk and hit batter. Austin Adams put TCU on the scoreboard first with an RBI single which scored J.J. Estrada. Shelby Ford was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to force in Adams, and Chad Huffman's sacrifice fly to right field plated Matt Carpenter. Keith Conlon then lifted a looping fly ball into shallow right field to score Stuart Musslewhite for the final run of the frame.

The score stayed that way until the fourth inning when Chris Joseph led off the frame with a towering shot to left field.

But just as soon as the Cougars scored, TCU struck back with a single run in the next half inning. Huffman pushed the TCU lead back to four runs with an RBI-single that plated Shelby Ford from second base.

In the seventh inning, UH used a four-run, two-out rally to tie the game at 5-5. After leading off with a single and stealing second, Bryan Pounds scored when Bryan Tully blasted his second double of the day down the left field line. Travis Tully, no relation to the former batter, then blasted an 0-1 offering from Furnish over the left field wall to pull the Cougars to within 5-4. Before all that excitement had ended for the Cougar fans in attendance, Joseph struck again with another towering solo shot to left field to tie the game at 5-5.

The Cougars staged a brief rally in the ninth inning when Travis Tully plated Bryan Tully with an RBI-double to left field. However, that would be as close as the Cougars would get the rest of the way.
