Pitching Breakdown:
Trey Cumbie | 9.0 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 11 K

Sophomore Trey Cumbie was Saturday's star as the southpaw fanned a career-high 11 en route to his second career complete-game shutout win. He allowed just five scattered hits and one walk to the Green Wave to move to 8-1 on the season -- the team-leader in wins.

He stranded a pair of runners in the first inning and managed to work the final eight innings, stranding just three. Cumbie struck out the side in the eighth. Three of the five hits surrendered were doubles, but none of those base runners ended up at third.


KEY INNINGS
3rd | Houston broke open the 0-0 stalemate in the third with a run following one-out double by Wong. He advanced to third on a passed ball and scored on a Padgett RBI-groundout to put the Cougars ahead, 1-0.

4th | The Cougars added to their lead in the fourth following a one-out singles by Julks and Coldiron and a perfect squeeze bunt by Slaughter, plating Julks to make it 2-0.

7th | Houston plated run No. 3 in the seventh thanks to another RBI-sac bunt, this time off the bat of Davis. Wong led off the inning with a double, moved to third on a passed ball and after a Padgett walk, he scored on a Davis bunt to extend Houston's lead to 3-0.

8th | Julks makes things happen in the eighth to put the Cougars ahead 4-0 as he led off the inning with a double, took third on a wild pitch and stole home with two outs in the inning.


TULANE NOTES
Tulane fell to 23-28 overall and 10-10 in American play. The Green Wave was held to just five hits, led by Hunter Williams, who had two. Green Wave starter J.P. France went 7.0 innings, allowing two earned runs on six hits with three walks and five strikeouts to fall to 5-4 on the year.
