POSTGAME NOTES

21 - With his first-inning single, Michael Pyeatt has now reached base safely in 21 consecutive games, dating back to April 12 vs. Louisville.

42 - Houston's 42 wins this season is the most since recording 42 in 2008.


CLEARWATER, Fla. - Despite tallying 12 hits, No. 12 Houston Baseball couldn't capitalize, stranding 13 base runners in a 7-2 loss to UConn on Thursday morning in Game 2 of the American Athletic Conference Championship in Clearwater, Fla. at Bright House Field.

The loss was just the second in the last 11 games for the Cougars as they saw their record drop to 42-15 on the year and 1-1 in the championship pool play bracket this week.

Houston out hit UConn, 12 to 9, but the 13 left stranded and the two critical errors proved to be the difference in the game.

Offensively, both senior Frankie Ratcliff (3x5) and freshman Connor Hollis (3x5) had a solid day at the plate, leading all hitters with three hits. They were joined by senior Casey Grayson (2x4, RBI) with two hits and an RBI.

Adding to the hit column was junior Michael Pyeatt (1x4) with a single that extended his on-base streak to 21 straight games, while sophomores Kyle Survance (1x4, R), Josh Vidales (1x2, R, 2 BB) and senior Caleb Barker (1x3) all recorded a base hit.

Sophomore starter Jake Lemoine (5.1,4,3,2,2,2) went 5.1 innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts, but would suffer the loss, falling to 6-6 on the year.

Seeing action out of the pen today was sophomore Bubba Maxwell (2.1,5,4,4,1,3) and junior Jared Robinson (0.1,0,0,0,0,0).

UConn jumped ahead of Houston 3-0 after two innings following a ground ball double play, an RBI-grounder and Cougar error.

Lemoine then settled in and combined with Maxwell to hold the Huskies to just one hit over the next four innings, allowing Houston to trim the deficit with two runs of its own.

The Cougars got on board first with a screaming RBI-single down the left field line off the bat of Grayson, which was originally ruled foul and later overturned on the appeal, scoring Vidales in the third after he opened the inning with a walk. Down 3-1, the Cougars took advantage of a delayed steal from Grayson at first to plate Survance from third before Grayson was tagged out, making it a 3-2 game in the fifth.

Playing down by one, the Cougars had several opportunities to capitalize on base runners, but stranded the bases loaded in the sixth and eighth innings. UConn would get its first hit in five innings on a solo homerun to make it 5-2 and later used a  two-out, two-run double to put the game out of reach in the eighth at 7-2.

Starter Jordan Tabakman (5.0,8,2,2,1,0) allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk to earn the win, improving to 4-4 on the year, while Anthony Kay (3.2,2,0,0,2,4) struck out four in 3.2 innings to earn his second save of the season.
