Despite dropping the series opener to the Bobcats, Houston responded and won the next two, including a 1-0 shutout win on Saturday behind the remarkable one-hitter, complete game by Conference USA Pitcher of the Week senior Austin Pruitt. Houston went on to record its fifth win of the year in a 4-2, 10-inning victory as Lemoine earned his second win of the week in relief of a strong outing by junior starter Daniel Poncedeleon. Junior Jonathan Davis and Landon Appling combined for 6-for-9 with two runs scored and an RBI.
