NUMBERS OF NOTE


13 With a walk in today's game, Michael Pyeatt ran his streak of consecutive games reaching base safely to 13 games.

8 Senior Jordan Lewis recorded his longest outing of the season with eight innings pitched.

6 Jordan Lewis recorded a season high six strikeouts in today's game against Rice. His previous high of five came last week against UAB (April 29, 2012).

HOUSTON--The University of Houston baseball team received another stellar outing by senior Jordan Lewis, but the Cougars weren't able to hang onto their early lead as No. 6 Rice plated all four runs in the final three innings as Houston fell 4-3 in 10 innings on Saturday afternoon at Reckling Park.

The Cougars' loss evened the weekend series as they fell to 16-27-1 overall and 4-12-1 in C-USA play. The win for Rice improved its record to 32-12 and 12-5. With one game remaining in the Silver Glove Series for 2012, the Owls hold a 2-1 advantage over the Cougars.

"It's not okay to lose the way we did and it's not okay to lose in extra innings," said head coach Todd Whitting. "We have got to play basic baseball and we unfortunately didn't do that today."

Lewis (8.0,3,2,0,2,6) worked 8.0 solid innings, surrendering just two unearned runs on three hits and two walks with six strikeouts for the no decision. The southpaw left the game with a 2-0 lead in the eighth after holding the impressive Rice offense to just three scattered hits. The 8.0 innings pitched and six strikeouts for Lewis were season-long efforts.

"I thought he was outstanding. That's the best I've seen Jordan Lewis pitch," said Whitting on Lewis' effort.

Houston out hit Rice, 6-5 on the afternoon, led by sophomore Jonathan Davis' 2-for-4 effort and two runs scored. Freshman Zack Gibson (1x3, RBI) and senior Jake Runte (1x1, RBI) each drove in a Cougar run with a base hit, while senior John Cannon (1x3, R) and junior Jacob Lueneburg (1x5) added a hit. 

Sophomore Chase Wellbrock (1.1,2,2,2,3,0) suffered the loss for Houston, tossing 1.1 innings of work, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks. The right-hander fell to 3-2 on the season.

In a pitchers' duel, Houston would scratch across the game's first run in the fourth inning after Cannon opened the frame by being hit by a pitch. He would move up and eventually score on two sacrifice bunts and a Rice error.

Up 1-0, Lewis continued to dominate the Rice hitters, going deep into the game for his second straight outing. The Cougars built a 2-0 lead in the eighth following a walk, Owl error and a two-out RBI-single by Gibson. 

Rice plated its first run of the game in the latter half of the frame after a leadoff walk, a Houston error and an executed squeeze bunt. The Owls used a one-run ninth to tie the game and force extra innings between the two clubs.

The Cougars looked like in good shape when Davis opened the 10th with his seventh double of the season. He moved up a base on a Cannon sacrifice and was driven in on a key pinch-hit single by Runte through the right side to take a 3-2 lead.

However, the Rice offense took advantage of free base runners in the 10th to plate two runs as they strung together two walks, two hits, and a sacrifice fly.

Houston fell to 0-3-1 in extra inning contests this season with the loss. 

"It just didn't work out for us today. I feel bad for our guys. I know they mentally wanted this game. We will be fine tomorrow. This wasn't the first time we have been in this situation this year," said Whitting. 

UP NEXT
Houston and Rice will conclude its series final on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Reckling Park. The game will be televised on CSS or fans can tune into UHCougars.com for live play-by-play by voice Jeremy Branham.
