NUMBERS OF NOTE


6 Freshman Aaron Garza struck out a career-high six Roadrunners in 5.0 innings of work to pick up his second win as a Cougar.

3 Junior Taylor White stole three bases for UH. The last time a Cougar swiped three bags came against Marshall when Landon Appling took three bases on April 20, 2012.

7 Houston totaled seven stolen bases against UTSA for a season-high. The seven swiped bags surpassed a previous season-high of five, which came at Cougar Field on April 20, 2012 vs. Marshall.

HOUSTON-- The University of Houston baseball team used timely hitting and seven stolen bases behind a solid outing by freshman Aaron Garza on the bump en route to an 8-3 win over UTSA on Tuesday evening at Cougar Field.

Houston snapped its three-game skid with the Tuesday midweek victory and improved to 15-26-1 overall and 10-9 in front of a home crowd, while UTSA fell to 19-26 with the loss.

"This team is pretty resilient. I liked the way we came out of the gates and scored early and kept the pressure off of us all night," said head coach Todd Whitting

The Cougars tallied 11 hits to UTSA's seven, led by junior Taylor White's 3-for-4 effort, one run scored and two RBI, along with a career-high three stolen bases. Also producing a multi-hit game was sophomore Jonathan Davis (2x3, R, 2 RBI) and junior Jacob Lueneburg (2x4, R, RBI). The duo was accompanied by sophomore Landon Appling (1x4, 2 R, BB) who extended his career-long hit streak to 10 games, while junior Chase Jensen (1x4, R, RBI, 2 SB), senior John Cannon (1x4, RBI, 2B) and freshman Michael Pyeatt (1x4, RBI) all added a base hit.

Garza (5.0,4,2,0,2,6) fanned a career-high six Roadrunners to pick up his second win of his short career to improve to 2-4. The right-hander didn't allow an earned run on four hits and two walks.

Senior Codey Morehouse (3.0,1,0,0,2,2) pitched 3.0 shutout innings in relief, allowing just one hit and two walks with two strikeouts, while senior Jared Ray (1.0,2,1,1,0,1) pitched the ninth, allowing one run on two hits and a strikeout.

Behind Garza, the Houston defense escaped an early jam as the righty induced an inning-ending double play to open the game, stranding a Roadrunner at third. The offense came alive early, tallying four of its 11 hits in the opening frame to score four runs. Appling led off with a walk, followed by three consecutive singles by Lueneburg, Jensen, Davis and a double by Cannon before an out was recorded.

Up 4-0, UTSA went on to plate two runs in the second, both unearned due to a fielding error. The Cougar offense was silenced for two frames, but would add to its lead with two runs in the fourth on a walk, two stolen bases, and two hits, RBIs coming from Lueneburg and White. 

Houston never settled at the plate, going on to add insurance runs in the seventh and eighth innings on an RBI-fielder's choice by Jensen and an RBI-single by White. 

UTSA scored once in the ninth after two singles.

Houston managed to only strand five base runners all evening to UTSA's nine. Roadrunner starter Jordan Pacheco (3.2,7,6,6,2,3) suffered the loss, falling to 1-3 on the year.

"Wins always feel good. We will take them anyway we can. I know the team is excited to go into this weekend with a little bit of momentum," said Whitting.

UP NEXT
The Cougars will travel across Hwy 288 to Reckling Park to take on the Rice Owls in a three-game C-USA series this weekend. The series is slated to begin on Friday at 6:30 p.m., continue on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. and conclude on Sunday at 1 p.m.
