NUMBERS OF NOTE


7 With his eighth inning single, freshman Justin Montemayor extends his current hit streak to seven straight games.

18 With his first inning single, freshman Kyle Survance extended his consecutive games of reaching base safely streak to 18.

45 Freshman Josh Vidales walked twice for the 44th and 45th walk of the season and is just five walks away from tying the all-time freshman walk record of 50 set back in 2001 by Cougar great Michael Bourn.

 
The loss dropped the Cougars’ overall record to 31-19 and league mark to 9-10, while the Blazers improved to 19-31 and 5-14 with the win.
 
Houston out hit UAB, 13-9, but two costly defensive miscues allowed the Blazers to plate two key runs, including the first run and the game-winner.
 
Junior Jonathan Davis (2x4, 2 RBI) and freshman Kyle Survance (2x5, 2 RBI) each drove in two RBI on two hits, while freshman Jacob Campbell (2x4, 2 R, RBI), junior Frankie Ratcliff (2x4, R, RBI) and freshman Josh Vidales (1x3, R, RBI, 2 BB) each drove in a run.
 
Senior reliever Matt Hernandez (4.1,1,1,1,2,3) was solid out of the pen, tossing 4.1 innings, allowing just one run on one hit and two walks with three strikeouts.
 
Junior starter Daniel Poncedeleon (3.2,7,6,4,2,1) lasted just 3.2 innings, allowing four earned runs on seven hits and two walks for the no decision.
 
Junior reliever Chase Wellbrock (1.0,1,1,0,0,1) didn’t surrender an earned run, but was tagged with the loss (0-1) after UAB scored, what proved to be, the winning run following an error by the Houston defense.
 
Houston loaded the bases in the first inning, but wasn’t able to push a run across until the second. Campbell got things rolling with a one-out single before Appling and Vidales drew consecutive walks to load the bases for Survance, who plated the game’s first run on a single through the right side and extend his on base streak to 18 straight games. Ratcliff followed with a sacrifice fly to right field to put Houston up 2-0.
 
UAB took advantage of two free passes and collected two hits in the third to take a 3-2 lead. They went on to extend their lead with three more runs in the fourth on four hits before Hernandez worked out of an inherited bases loaded jam to keep the UAB lead at just four runs.
 
Davis made it a two-run game with his two-run double into right center, scoring Vidales and Ratcliff, who reached via a walk and single, respectively. Vidales’ second walk of the game marked his 45th walk this season, now just five shy of Cougar Great Michael Bourn’s all-time walk record by a freshman at 50 set back in 2001.
 
Hernandez worked a quick 1-2-3 inning to send Houston back to offense, which regained the lead with a three-run fifth as Barker scored on a double by Campbell after opening the inning with a single of his own. Vidales and Survance also drove in runs on RBI-groundouts.
 
Up 7-6, Hernandez was solid over the next three frames, allowing just one hit. UAB would get its leadoff hitter in the ninth to reach on a hit-by-pitch. A one-out single would put runners at first and third, while a groundout would tie the game at 7-7 with two outs in the ninth. With two outs and a runner at second, Wellbrock induced a groundout, but a miscue would allow the Blazers to come around and score to make it 8-7.
 
Barker led off the ninth and sent a deep fly to left field, but it landed just short of a homerun. UAB reliever James Naile (5.0,7,3,3,1,2) picked up the win, while closer Chase Mallard (0.2,0,0,0,0,1) earned the save.
