Connor Hollis | 1x3, R

Houston tallied nine hits, led by Joe Davis, who went 2-for-4 with a run and two RBI. Jake Scheiner drove in a pair of RBI on a single and groundout and Grayson Padgett scored three times, reached on two hits and drove in a run.

Pitching Breakdown:
Carter Henry | 4.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 4 BB, 6 K
Nolan Bond | 4.1 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 3 K

Freshman Carter Henry worked 4.2 innings in his fifth start of his young career. He struck out six and surrendered three runs on six hits with four walks for the no-decision. He handed the ball over to sophomore teammate Nolan Bond in the fifth, who managed to retire the one hitter he faced in that frame.

Bond returned and was dominant, allowing just one run on four hits with no walks in 4.1 innings out of the bullpen. The righty struck out three en route to his first career win as a Cougar.


KEY INNINGS
3rd | McNeese broke open the 0-0 stalemate in the third with one run on two hits.

4th | The Cougars quickly responded with a run of their own when Padgett led off the inning with a single and scored on the first pitch Davis saw as he drove a ball into the right center gap for an RBI-double.

5th | McNeese used a two hits and a walk to score a pair of runs in the fifth to jump out to a 3-1 lead on the Cougars.

6th | Once again, Houston responded McNeese's scoring efforts with a pair of runs as Padgett led off the inning with a walk, scored on an RBI-single by Davis. Davis then moved to third on back-to-back errors and scored on a Scheiner RBI-groundout.

McNeese used three more hits to plate a run and regain the lead at 4-3 in the bottom of the sixth.

7th | With one out in the seventh, Hollis singled then moved to second on a wild pitch. After a flyout to make it two outs, Padgett would find the right center gap, plating Hollis from second on an RBI-single. Davis walked to move Padgett to second base for Scheiner, who then put the Cougars ahead, 5-4 on another two-out RBI-single.


MCNEESE NOTES
McNeese State fell to 34-17 overall with the loss. The Cowboys out hit Houston, 10-9, led by Robbie Podorsky's three-hit, two-run night with three stolen bases. Reliever Tyler Wesley suffered the loss, falling to 1-2 on the season after allowing two runs on three hits and a walk in 1.0 inning.
