HOUSTON - The University of Houston baseball team came up short in its bid for a series finale win, 5-2, in game three of the Conference USA series against the Rice Owls Sunday afternoon at Cougar Field.

Houston got off to a slow start, falling behind 4-0 after three innings. But they would get things together and jump on the board in the fifth inning, scoring freshman Landon Appling on senior Ryan Still's double to left centerfield.

Junior Jordan Mannisto would enter the game in relief in the fourth inning and turned in five solid innings for the Cougars. He went four scoreless innings to keep the UH within three runs of the Owls entering the ninth inning.

Rice then put two runners on base in the top of the ninth on back-to-back singles before freshman Dustin Fuerst was called to the mound. He hit the first batter he faced, loading the bases for Michael Fuda's sacrifice fly to centerfield. The hit allowed Michael Ratterree to score from third and give the Owls a 5-1 lead.

Sophomore Chase Jensen would set in motion a ninth-inning rally for the Cougars with a single up the middle. Senior Joel Ansley put runners at the corners with a single to left field and junior John Cannon's sacrifice fly to right field allowed Jensen to score. With two outs already on the board, the Cougars' rally would end as junior Codey Morehouse fouled out to third base to end the game.

Wiley turned in three innings on the mound for UH. He gave up three earned runs on six hits with a walk. Mannisto turned in a career-long five innings of relief, giving up one run on seven hits with two strikeouts. Fuerst pitched the final inning and had one strikeout.

At the plate Still was 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Jensen and Appling each had a hit and scored a run for the Cougars.

With the loss, Houston falls to 22-26 on the season and 9-9 in Conference USA play.
