Six-Run Outburst Lifts Baseball Past Texas Southern

May 3, 2005

Final Stats

HOUSTON - The University of Houston baseball exploded for six runs in the sixth inning to erase a five-run deficit and never looked back in taking a 6-5 win over city-rival Texas Southern on Tuesday at Cougar Field.

TSU (18-20-1) jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first five innings and appeared to have the game under control after scoring two more unearned runs in the top of the sixth inning to put UH in a 5-0 deficit.

However, the Cougars (20-24) exploded in the bottom of the inning, scoring six runs off five hits while batting around the lineup. Freshman catcher Cody Waller started the rally with a leadoff walk and moved to third base after Travis Tully laced a double down the right-field line.

Chris Joseph reached base safely on an infield single to load the bases, knocking TSU starter Brandon Stricklen out of the game. After the pitching change, Brad Lincoln slapped an RBI-single through the left side of the TSU infield to plate Waller and hand the Cougars their first run of the game and keep the bases loaded. Kevin Roberts then drew a bases-loaded walk to force Tully home.

Dustin Kingsbury pulled the Cougars to within a run after his double down the left-field line scored both Joseph and Lincoln. After another TSU pitching change, pinch-hitter Bryan Tully singled into right field to score Robert and tie the game at 5-5.

Pinch-hitter Matt Farrington then reached on a fielder's choice for the Cougars' first out of the inning but not before Kingsbury raced in from third base to hand the Cougars a lead they would never relinquish.

 

 

Travis Tully went 3-for-3 with a double and run to lead the Cougar offense and extend his hitting streak to a season-high eight straight games. Kingsbury finished the night 2-for-4 with a run and two RBIs, while Bryan Tully batted 2-for-2 with an RBI.

Freshman reliever Ricky Hargrove picked up the win after holding TSU to only two hits in 2.2 innings of work with six strikeouts. Junior reliever Justin Vaclavik collected his eighth save of the season after retiring the TSU side in order following a leadoff single.

Freshman righthander Aaron Brown made his third consecutive midweek starter and deserved a better fate. The League City, Texas, native allowed five runs off seven hits with a career-high eight strikeouts but was the victim of a Cougar defense which committed three errors in the field, making all but one run unearned.

TSU first baseman Herman Coachmen went 2-for-4 with a run and two RBIs, while David Arrendendo batted 2-for-4 with two runs and a pair of RBIs in the losing effort. Victor Davidson also finished the night 2-for-4.

TSU reliever Wayne Guillory dropped to 1-1 with the loss after allowing three runs off two hits and a walk in 0.0 innings of work.

The Cougars continue their season this weekend as they play host to Conference USA rival Saint Louis in a three-game series at Cougar Field. The series begins with 7 p.m. games on both Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Friday's game can be heard live on KLVL 1480 AM while Saturday's and Sunday's games will be broadcast on KGBC 1540 AM. All three games can be heard live 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.

TSU struck for the game's first run in their first at-bat when Coachmen's RBI-single plated Cory Alexander, who started the Tiger rally with a two-out triple to right center.

Two innings later, Arrendendo blasted a one-out, two-run homer over the left-field wall to hand TSU a 3-0 cushion.

In the sixth inning, Coachmen led off with a single to left field, moved to second base when a pickoff attempt went awry and scored on Arrendendo's RBI-single into right field. Arrendendo then came around to score from first base on the Cougars' second miscue of the inning.
