Faught Fires Complete Game One-Hitter Over UAB, Strikes Out 10

Houston Pads Lead In C-USA Standings

  • Box Score

    Houston, Tex. (April 7) - University of Houston true freshman Austin Faught fired the second complete game shutout of his career, a one-hitter against visiting UAB, to help the Cougars claim a 9-0 Conference USA win over the Blazers on Saturday afternoon (April 7). Faught's gem, which included tying a career-high with 10 strikeouts and allowing only two walks, helped the Cougars gain another full game in the C-USA standings over current second place teams Tulane and South Florida (both 7-4 in conference).

    Houston improved to 18-18 overall and 10-1 in C-USA action. The Cougars now have a three-game lead on both Tulane and South Florida heading into the finale of the three-game weekend series with the Blazers. UH meets UAB at Cougar Field at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.

    After holding the Blazers scoreless for 12 innings on Friday, Houston has not allowed a run in its last 22-consecutive innings. Faught was intent on keeping the scoreless streak alive. The lefthander from Houston's Jersey Village High School was in complete control. He allowed four base runners on the day, but none advanced so far as second base. The last UAB runner, who led off the top of the ninth inning by reaching first base on a strikeout and wild pitch, was erased when Faught induced a double-play ground ball. Houston turned three double plays on the day and was error free in the field.

    Offensively the Cougars collected 12 hits, including three each by freshmen Michael Bourn and Hyung Cho. Cho's two-out double in the bottom of the second inning gave the Cougars an early 1-0 lead. He then had an RBI single to be part of a big, three-run third that gave Houston a 4-0 lead and some breathing room. The Cougars then added four more runs in the seventh on the aid of four UAB fielding errors and one final run in the eighth.

    UAB's lone hit was by designated hitter Brandon Isbell in the second inning. The Blazers fell to 17-14 on the year and 3-8 in conference play.
