HOUSTON--The University of Houston baseball team will welcome UL-Lafayette to Cougar Field on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in its final non-conference contest of 2012. 

The Cougars are coming off a 1-2 weekend vs. C-USA foe, Tulane where Houston earned a Game 1 win in 12 innings, before falling in the final two contests. Houston sits at 17-30-1 overall and 11-11 at Cougar Field this season.

A LOOK AT HOUSTON
Houston is led offensively by junior Jacob Lueneburg's .313 average and team-best 52 hits and 12 stolen bases. Following Lueneburg is senior John Cannon with a .308 clip, while sophomore Landon Appling records a .301 average and team-high 26 runs scored, three homeruns.  

ON THE BUMP FOR HOUSTON
Junior Matt Hernandez will get the start on Tuesday for Houston. The southpaw is 0-2 this season with a 6.66 ERA. He has made 14 appearances and three starts for the Cougars. In 25.2 innings pitched, Hernandez has fanned 17 batters.

Throwing out of the pen for Houston of late has been sophomore Chase Wellbrock (3.86, 3-2, 14 AP), freshman Ryan Vruggink (9.75, 0-0, 13 AP), junior Jordan Mannisto (5.28, 1-4) and senior Codey Morehouse (3.38, 1-2).

A LOOK AT LOUISIANA
Louisiana will take on Houston with a 23-27 overall record and a 7-15 mark on the road this season. The Ragin' Cajuns are coming off a series win at Middle Tennessee in Sun Belt play. The two wins snapped a four-game skid Louisiana had prior to Saturday's contests. The Ragin' Cajuns are led offensively by Ryan Leonards' .335 clip. He is followed by teammate Chase Compton's .330 average and Tyler Girouard's .304 clip. Dylan Butler leads the team with 45 RBI and eight homeruns.

ON THE BUMP FOR LOUISIANA
Louisiana's starter is TBA.

SERIES HISTORY
Houston and Louisiana will meet for the second time this season and 49th time in school history. The Cougars own the all-time series at 36-12-1, but dropped a 3-1 decision on March 6 in Lafayette, Louisiana despite a complete game effort by right-handed junior Austin Pruitt. Houston has won 8-of-the last 10 contests vs. Louisiana and is 15-5-1 all-time at Cougar Field.
