HOUSTON-- The University of Houston baseball team welcomes UTSA to Cougar Field on Tuesday for a 6:30 p.m. non-conference contest.

The Cougars return to action after having been swept on the road at UAB this past weekend in conference play. Houston will look to snap its three-game skid and improve its 14-26-1 overall record against UTSA. The Cougars are 9-9 at Cougar Field this season and 11-15 in non-conference play.

A LOOK AT HOUSTON
Offensively, Houston is hitting .268 as a team, led by four players with at least a .300 clip. The Cougars have relied heavily on the bats of sophomore Jonathan Davis, who paces the team with a .325 average, junior Jacob Lueneburg and senior John Cannon with .309 and .308 averages, respectively. Sophomore Landon Appling is hitting .291 and is riding a career-long nine game hit streak, while senior Codey Morehouse contributes with a .304 mark. Junior Chase Jensen leads the team with 44 hits and 29 RBI and is second-best with 18 runs scored.

ON THE BUMP FOR HOUSTON
Houston will throw right-handed freshman Aaron Garza against UTSA on Tuesday. Garza enters the midweek contest with a 5.40 ERA and a 1-4 record. In 10 appearances and eight starts, he has pitched 31.2 innings and struck out 21 with only 10 walks.

Garza will make his fifth straight midweek start with his last outing coming against Sam Houston State, going just 1.2 innings, allowing three earned runs on four hits and one strikeout. 

A LOOK AT UTSA
UTSA comes to Cougar Field after salvaging a win on Sunday at Central Arkansas. The Roadrunners dropped the first two of the Southland series, but the highlight last week came when UTSA snapped Baylor's record-long win streak in a 4-1 victory in San Antonio, Texas. UTSA sits at 19-25 overall and is 8-9 on the road this season. As a team, the Roadrunners are hitting .274, led by Casey Selsor's .323 average. Ryan Dalton leads the team with 54 hits, 10 doubles, and seven homeruns and follows with a .321 clip. 

ON THE BUMP FOR UTSA
UTSA will start right-hander Jordan Pacheco, who enters with a 4.66 ERA and a 1-2 record. Pacheco has made 16 appearances and just five starts this season with 38.2 innings pitched. The righty has fanned 35, but allowed a .338 average to opposing hitters. Out of the pen, Matt Sims leads the team with six saves. 

SERIES HISTORY
The Cougars and Roadrunners will meet for the 25th time in school history on Tuesday. Houston leads the all-time series, 15-9, but dropped both contests in 2011. Houston's last win against UTSA came back on April 13, 2010 in a 14-8 road victory. At Cougar Field, the Cougars are 9-4.

The series is slated to begin on Friday at 6:30 p.m., continue on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. and conclude on Sunday at 1 p.m.
