Houston starter John King (6.0,3,0,0,0,1) was dominant, holding Prairie View A&M to no runs on just three hits in 6.0 shutout innings for his fifth win of the year -- improving to 5-3.

Freshmen relievers Tanner Lawson (2.0,1,0,0,1,1) and Nolan Bond (1.0,0,0,0,0,1) combine to throw the final 3.0 innings in shutout fashion, holding the Panthers to just one hit and one walk with two strikeouts.

The Houston offense strung together 10 hits and took advantage of six walks en route to the eight runs scored on the night.

Sophomore Connor Wong kept his on-base streak alive and improved it to 12 straight games with a 3-for-5 performance, one run scored and two RBI.

Also adding a multi-hit game was senior Michael Pyeatt, who was 2-for-5 and freshman Joe Davis, who was 2-for-5 with a run scored and RBI.

Junior Jose Reyes drove in a pair of RBI with one hit and scored a run, while seniors Josh Vidales and Justin Montemayor and sophomore Clay Casey each added an RBI on walks and sacrifice fly outs.

Houston jumped out to an early 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the second inning thanks to a sacrifice fly by Montemayor and a two-out RBI-double by Wong. Vidales opened the frame with walk No. 130 of his career -- bringing him just three walks shy of the Houston all-time record.

Vidales stole second and moved to third on an error before scoring on a Montemayor sac fly. With two outs in the frame, Reyes singled and later scored from first on an RBI-double by Wong to make it 2-0.

The Cougars tacked on a three-run sixth inning to extend their lead to 5-0 thanks to three free passes, including a pair of bases-loaded walks for RBI for Vidales and Casey. Davis opened the inning with a leadoff single, moved to second on a walk by sophomore Corey Julks and to third on an infield bunt single by sophomore Connor Hollis.

With bases loaded, Vidales drew walk No. 130 of his career for an RBI -- giving Houston the 5-0 lead. Directly after, Casey drew a bases-loaded walk for run No. 4. Following a fielder's choice, Reyes drove in Vidales on a deep fly ball to center field for the sac fly -- giving the Cougars the five-run advantage.

The scoring continued with a three-run eighth inning as Casey opened the frame with a walk, moved to third on an error by the Panthers -- allowing Montemayor to reach. With runners at second and third with no outs, Reyes drove in his second RBI of the day on sacrifice fly to make it 6-0.

Wong then doubled, driving in Montemayor and back-to-back hits by Pyeatt and Davis kept the inning alive as Davis' single into right field made it an 8-0 game.

Prairie View A&M starter Alex Richardson (5.0,6,5,5,4,2) suffered the loss, falling to 1-1 on the year -- after allowing five runs on six hits and four walks with two strikeouts.


POSTGAME QUOTE
Head Coach Todd Whitting
On tonight's 8-0 shutout win
"It was a really good night for us coming off of a tough one last night; the offense responded well. We had 10 hits and I thought we hit 20-25 balls hard, we stung a lot of balls and had them fall. Going into the weekend, this will give us a boost of confidence. (John) King, (Tanner) Lawson, and (Nolan) Bond pitched well for us tonight. It was an overall good team win for us tonight."
