Cincinnati jumped out to a 1-0 lead with three infield singles in the first inning, but were shutout for the next 8.0 frames as Romero (9.0,5,1,1,1,9) struck out nine and allowed just one run on five hits and one walk in his third career complete game and second of the year.

After allowing the three infield singles to Cincinnati, Romero went on a run -- retiring the next 17 Bearcats through the second and sixth innings. All Cincinnati could muster after that was a hit in each of the seventh and eighth innings.

The West Columbia, Texas native struck out the side in the third and with a total of nine, now has 93 strikeouts in 79.2 innings this season to lead the Cougars in that category.

Down 1-0 for most of the game, the Cougars never let up. Wong would lead off the seventh inning with his team-leading 37th walk of the year. With one out in the inning, Montemayor belted a screaming liner over the right field wall to put the Cougars ahead 2-1 -- and for good.

Montemayor reached on his second hit of the game -- belting his third long ball of the year to tally RBI No. 29 and 30.

With a slim 2-1 lead, Houston didn't waste much time to extend its lead when freshman Davis took the first pitch he saw to open the eighth inning -- belting it deep over the left field wall for home run No. 10 for the rookie.

With that home run, Davis broke the Houston All-Time Freshman Home Run record -- previously held by Mike Musolino with nine back in 1986.

The 3-1 lead held for Romero as he retired Cincinnati quickly in the ninth for the complete game effort.

Houston out hit Cincinnati, 7-5, led by Montemayor -- who was 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI -- following a home run and double. Davis followed with his 1-for-3 effort with a run scored and RBI. Sophomore Corey Julks added two hits and Wong scored the other run for the Cougars after a walk.

Cincinnati ace Andrew Zellner (9.0,7,3,3,2,5) also went a complete game, but allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts in the loss -- falling to 6-4 on the season.
