Birmingham, Ala. - The University of Houston baseball team completed the doubleheader sweep with a 7-4 game two win over UAB Saturday afternoon at Young Memorial Field.

Houston earned their first C-USA doubleheader sweep with the win since knocking off TCU on May 18, 2002. The Cougars also improve to 19-24 overall and 6-9 in league action.

For the second time in the series, the Blazers scored the first run of the game when Jonathan Merritt hit a solo home run in the first inning. The Cougars, however, quickly tied the contest in the top of the second when Zak Presley scored on Travis Trial's sacrifice fly to left field.

Houston continued things in the third inning when Caleb Ramsey led off with a single to short center field and M.P. Cokinos followed with a double down the left field line. Ramsey would then score on a fielder's choice that put Chris Wallace on base, giving Houston the 2-1 lead.

With one out in the fourth inning, Austin Gracey singled and Travis Trial walked to put two Cougars on base before the pair reached home on Joel Ansley's home run to left field.

Cokinos then hit the second long ball of the game and the 10th of the series in the fifth inning, a solo shot to right field, giving Houston a 6-3 lead.

The Blazers would answer the Cougar's scoring in the fourth and fifth with a single run in the bottom of each inning and after a scoreless sixth and seventh innings, Luke Stewart hit UAB's second home run of the day over the center field fence in the bottom of the eighth.

Blake Kelso scored a final run for Houston in the top of the ninth, after leading off with a single to left field he scored on Wallace's sacrifice bunt to the pitcher.

UH got another solid performance from its pitching staff as Eric Brooks turned in a career-long seven innings with a career-high tying five strikeouts. Barry Laird come in relief for the second time on the day, going 0.1 inning and Mo Wiley went 1.2 scoreless innings with four strikeouts to earn his first save of the year.

UP NEXT
Houston will return to Cougar Field for an eight-game home stand beginning May 7-9 against Tulane. It will continue against Texas A&M (May 11), Marshall (May 14-16) and concluding with Rice (May 18).
