Baseball Rallies Late Again to Sweep Saint Louis

May 8, 2005

Final Stats

HOUSTON - Matt Farrington laced a two-out double to left field to break a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the seventh inning and helped lift the University of Houston baseball team to an 8-2 victory over Saint Louis in the finale of a Conference USA series at Cougar Field.

In another nail-biter against the Billikens, the Cougars fell behind in the seventh inning and grabbed their first lead of the game with a two-out rally in the seventh inning. Kevin Roberts started the rally with a single up the middle and moved to second base on Chris Joseph's infield single.

Pinch hitter Brian Temko then laced the first pitch he saw through the left side of the infield. Although SLU left fielder Johnny Sweeney's throw to the plate appeared to arrive ahead of an oncoming Roberts, Roberts made a nice play sliding into home plate and avoided the tag of catcher Jerry Vickery to tie the game at 2-2.

Farrington followed with the double to right field to score Joseph from third base and give the Cougars a lead they would never relinquish again.

UH (23-24, 13-10 C-USA) broke the game wide open in the eighth inning with five runs off five hits and never looked back in earning their first weekend sweep of the season and their 15th consecutive win over Saint Louis at Cougar Field. In addition, the Cougars extended their winning streak to a season-high five straight games.

With his baserunning in the bottom of the seventh, Roberts helped his own pitching cause and collected his third consecutive win to tie a career high. The Pearland, Texas, native struck out a career-high 11 batters and allowed only two runs off five hits in seven innings of work.

 

 

In addition, he finished the day offensively by going 2-for-3 with two runs, two RBIs and his team-leading fifth triple of the season.

Junior reliever Austin Sumerlin picked up his first career save after holding the Billikens to only one hit with three strikeouts in two shutout innings. The Houston native also distinguished himself at the plate with an RBI on a groundout in the Cougars' five-run eighth inning after some lineup juggling by head coach Rayner Noble forced the Cougars to lose their designated hitter.

Joseph went 2-for-4 with a run, and freshman outfielder Bryan Tully batted 2-for-4 with a run to extend his hitting streak to seven straight games. Junior outfielder Travis Tully went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a pair of runs to extend his hitting streak to a season-high 11 consecutive games.

SLU starter Eric Rohr collected the loss and dropped to 2-5 after giving up three runs off seven hits with four strikeouts in 6.2 innings of work.

Sweeney went 2-for-3 to lead the Billikens, who rapped out six hits in the loss.

The Cougars continue their season when they meet area-rival Texas A&M at 7 p.m., Tuesday at Olsen Field in College Station, Texas. That game can be heard live on KLVL 1480 AM or over the Internet at www.UHCougars.com with former UH letterwinners Nick Torina and Pat Cauley calling all the action.

In addition, Tuesday's showdown against the Aggies will be televised live on ESPN2 with Dave Barnett and Kyle Peterson calling the action.

SLU grabbed the lead in its first at bat when Patrick Valdez scored from third base after a Cougar wild pitch.

The Cougars answered in the bottom of the inning with a run of their own. Travis Tully led off with a double down the left field line and moved to third on Bryan Tully's infield single. Dustin Kingsbury then lifted a sacrifice fly into foul territory in right field to plate Travis Tully and tie the game at 1-1.

The score stayed that way until the seventh inning when SLU struck for another run, thanks to a hit and wild pitch. After drawing a two-out walk and moving into scoring position on a wild pitch, Neil Graser gave the Billikens a 2-1 lead when Jon Guyre slapped an RBI-single into right field.

After the Cougars grabbed the lead in the bottom of the seventh inning, the offense exploded and put the game out of reach in their next at bat with five runs off five hits. Travis Tully led off with another double down the left-field line and moved to third following Bryan Tully's infield single. Dustin Kingsbury then reached on an infield single to score Travis Tully and allow Bryan Tully to reach third.

Brad Lincoln followed with an RBI-single through the right side of the SLU infield, scoring Bryan Tully and knocking SLU reliever Charlie Blume out of the game.

Roberts then struck again with a two-run triple down the right field line. Two batters later, Sumerlin distinguished himself at the plate by grounding out but not before Roberts scored from third base to cap the Cougar scoring.
