    NUMBERS OF NOTE


    3 Jonathan Davis was a perfect 3-for-3 in Saturday's home finale. He collected three of Houston's five hits.

    6 Houston honored six seniors in Jared Ray, John Cannon, Mo Wiley, Codey Morehouse, Jake Runte and Jordan Lewis during pregame ceremonies.

    HOUSTON--The University of Houston baseball team dropped its season-finale, 11-0, to Memphis in eight innings on Saturday afternoon at Cougar Field. Six Cougar seniors were honored prior to the day's first pitch.

    Houston falls to 17-33-1 overall and 5-18-1 in C-USA play, while Memphis improved to 29-26 and 14-10.

    The Cougars were silenced and held to just five hits against Memphis starter Chase Joiner (8.0,5,0,0,0,4). Houston was led by sophomore Jonathan Davis' 3-for-3 effort at the plate, while senior John Cannon (1x3) and freshman Michael Pyeatt (1x2) each contributed with a hit.

    Houston once again spotted Memphis 5+ runs in an inning, falling down 6-0 after the third frame, which resulted in six hits for the Tigers. Memphis went on to score one in fourth, one in the fifth and three in the eighth for the 11-run run rule.

    The Cougars threatened in the first inning with two of its five hits, but Houston stranded the base loaded.

    Houston starter Jared Ray (2.1,4,5,5,2,2) suffered the loss, falling to 2-5 on the year after allowing five runs on four hits in 2.1 innings of work. Seeing action out of the Houston pen was junior Matt Hernandez (0.2,2,1,0,0,1), freshman Aaron Garza (2.0,4,2,2,2,1), sophomore Dustin Fuerst (2.1,2,3,0,0,2) and freshman Ryan Vruggink (0.2,1,0,0,1,1).
