The Houston offense posted 11 hits, but wasn't able to overcome a consistent scoring effort by Memphis as the Tigers took Game 1 of the series.

The Cougars were led offensively by senior Justin Montemayor's 1-for-2 effort with two RBI, while senior Jacob Campbell (1x3) and junior Jose Reyes (1x3) each had a hit and RBI.

Senior Josh Vidales, sophomore Connor Hollis and freshman Joe Davis each had a two-hit game.

Houston starter Andrew Lantrip (1.0,3,2,1,0,1) worked just one inning before being relieved by junior teammate Bubba Maxwell.

Maxwell (5.1,9,5,5,2,2) suffered the unfortunate loss, falling to 1-1 on the year after surrendering five runs on nine hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 5.1 innings out of the bullpen.

Following Maxwell's effort out of the bullpen was freshman Tanner Lawson (0.0,0,0,0,0,0) and redshirt freshman Chris Reed (2.1,3,4,4,2,1)

Memphis took advantage of three hits and a Houston throwing error to plate two runs in the top of the second inning, but the Cougars quickly responded with a pair of runs to even the score in the latter half. Campbell reached one on a one-out single, moved to second on a single by Hollis before both scored following a two-out, two-run double by Montemayor into right center field.

The Tigers would use a three-run fourth inning thanks to three hits to go ahead 5-2 on the Cougars.

Down by three, Houston continued to chip away with a single run in the fourth as Reyes plated Hollis on an RBI-single and a single run in the fifth after Davis doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly by Campbell to make it a 5-4 game in favor of the Tigers.

Memphis had a scoring threat brewing in the sixth as the base runner attempted to score following a double down the right field line, but a perfect relay from sophomore Corey Julks to Vidales to Campbell kept Memphis off the board and the score to just a one-run game.

The Tigers forced two pitching changes in the seventh inning and went on to plate two runs to extend their lead to 7-4. The scoring continued for Memphis as they added a run in the eighth following a walk, two stolen bases and a single and four more in the ninth.

Memphis starter Colton Hathcock (5.0,9,4,4,1,1) earned the win, allowing just four runs on nine hits and one walk with one strikeout in 5.0 innings of work.
