Skender Leads Rally Past Texas-San Antonio

March 10, 2004

Box Score

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Jenilee Skender knocked in four RBI, including a decisive two-run home run in the sixth, and Jenny Johnson came out of the bullpen yet again to rally the Cougars past Texas-San Antonio, 5-3, in game one of scheduled afternoon doubleheader.

Houston continues its best-ever start by improving to 22-8, while UTSA falls to 13-8.

Using a balanced offensive attack, one in which every starter except two had at least one hit, the Cougars banged out 11 hits to notch their fourth straight win. The sixth inning was the rally frame, and Kristen Glowacz led off with a triple to left center. On a 3-0 count Skender blasted her third home run of the season to give UH the lead again at 4-3.

Houston scratched out an insurance run when pinch hitter Jeanie Davis singled in Arelis Ferreris who had earlier walked. Ferreris was sacrificed to second by Brandi Clark and moved to third on a single to center field by Michelle Keith, setting up Davis pinch-hitting heroics. The Cougars left bases loaded, however, when Kim Nesloney hit into a fielder's choice and Jamie Adams struck out.

Nesloney started off the game with a single to shortstop. Adams attempted to move Nesloney over on a sacrifice bunt, but both runners reached safely when UTSA tried to get Nesloney at second. Glowacz did get a sacrifice down to move the runners to second and third. Both Nesloney and Adams scored on Jenilee Skender's single up the middle. The Cougars' big inning was squelched when Arelis Ferreris lined into an inning-ending double play.

 

 

UTSA got one run back in its half of the first. Jessica Rogers reached first with two outs with a walk off Crystal Briscoe. Rogers moved up a base on a wild pitch, and Christy Brownlee lifted a pop up in what would have been the last out of the inning, but UH shortstop Jenny Baker dropped the would-be out, allowing Rogers to score. Briscoe escaped further damage by striking out Jessica Els.

The Roadrunners took the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning, chasing Briscoe in the process. Jennifer Davis opened the frame with a single to left field. She was sacrificed over by Els, and then another Baker error, this time on a grounder by Aimee Murray, putting runners at the corners with one out. Briscoe walked the number-eight hitter, Catherine Garza, to load the bases.

The number-nine hitter, Tammy Nelson, brought two runners home on a double into the right-center gap. When Briscoe walked Krystal Gibson, that was all for the sophomore from Buffalo, Texas, and Jenny Johnson was called in from the bullpen to douse the fire. Johnson struck out Jenny Garcia and induced a ground out from Jessica Rogers to end the inning.

Johnson relieved Briscoe and pitched 3.2 solid innings of relief. Johnson improves to 9-4 on the year, striking out five and walking none.
