NUMBERS OF NOTE


4 Freshman Michael Pyeatt drove in a career-high four RBI, including a two to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth on a single to LF. Junior reliever Aaron Stewart also went 4.0 innings, a career-long with three strikeouts.

2 To begin the series, the "magic" number was two. Houston clinched the final spot in the C-USA Championship next week with two Marshall losses to Tulane this weekend.

HOUSTON--Down 6-4 heading into the bottom ninth, the University of Houston baseball team rallied to even the score and force extra innings before eventually falling 8-7 in 11 frames on Friday evening against Memphis in C-USA play at Cougar Field. 

Despite the loss on Friday, Houston has secured and clinched the final spot in the C-USA Championship next week in Pearl, Mississippi following an extra-inning win by Tulane over Marshall. The Cougars fell to 17-32-1 overall and 5-17-1 in league play after the loss, while Memphis improved to 28-26 and 13-10.

Freshman Michael Pyeatt (3x4, 4 RBI) enjoyed a career-night at the plate, tallying four RBI and driving in two on a sharp single to left field in the ninth inning to tie the game and force extra innings.  He finished the night, going 3-for-4 with four RBI.

Houston tallied 13 hits. Senior Jake Runte (2x3, 3 R, 3 BB) scored three runs and had two hits, while sophomore Jonathan Davis (2x4, 2 R, RBI) drove in a run, scored two on two hits. Senior John Cannon (2x5) notched two hits, while junior Chase Jensen (1x5, R, RBI) and freshman Price Jacobs (0x3, RBI) drove in runs.

The Cougars spotted Memphis four runs in the first inning on two errors and five hits. It took the Houston offense until the fourth to plate its first run, which came on an RBI-groundout by Jacobs. Memphis went on to tack on two more over the next two innings, but Houston added a run in the fifth on an RBI-single by Davis and two in the seventh following a leadoff double by junior Taylor White, two walks, two hits and a sacrifice fly.

Down 6-4 heading into the ninth, Houston's Runte walked for the third time of the night to leadoff the inning. He was followed by a Memphis error to put runners at the corners with no outs. A walk loaded the bases for Pyeatt, who drove in two on his single to left.

Houston reliever Aaron Stewart (4.0,1,1,1,1,3) was lights out from the pen when he entered the game in the seventh. The southpaw worked a career-long 4.0 innings, allowed just one run on one hit and one walk with three strikeouts. Prior to this outing, Stewart had only pitched 9.0 total innings on the year.

A leadoff walk to Memphis in the 11th eventually proved to be the winning run as the Tigers were issued two walks and tallied one hit to go up 8-6 in the 11th. Houston made its second rally of the night in the latter half of the frame when Davis opened with a leadoff walk, moved to third on a single by Cannon. Pyeatt's sacrifice fly scored Davis to narrow the score to one, but following a walk, two outs were recorded to end the threat.

Stewart suffered the loss for Houston, falling to 0-1 on the year despite an impressive effort out of the pen. Senior Jordan Lewis (5.0,9,5,2,1,6) fanned six in 5.0 innings of work. The lefty allowed two earned runs on nine hits and one walk to receive the no-decision.

Memphis reliever Jonathan Van Eaton (3.2,4,2,1,2,3) earned the win, while Sam Moll picked up the save.

UP NEXT

Houston and Memphis wrap up the three-game series on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Cougar Field. Six seniors: Jared Ray, Codey Morehouse, Mo Wiley, Jake Runte, John Cannon, and Jordan Lewis will all be honored at 12:30 p.m.
