Houston vs Army - Game 3 (W 9-7)

Definitely. Great weekend for the Coogs.

Hopefully, the baseball team can keep this going on Tuesday against UTSA. No idea who will start. Guess, if Bielo’s healthy, you could throw him, but then you don’t have him on the weekend.

Man, I still can’t believe they pitched to Davis in the 9th with a runner on 2nd and 1 out. The one guy on Houston you don’t let beat you in that situation if you can help it is Big Joe, you have an opportunity to put him on 1st to set up the double play, and…you pitch to him. Just absolutely baffling.

I thought the same thing. After the pick off error I said to myself “well I guess they will intentionally walk him now. Only the runner on second means anything.” I’m glad they pitched to him though.


#25

It looks like Joe didn’t know whether it had left the yard right away either.


#26

I was behind home plate when he hit that and the combination of not really seeing the ball go over and Joe’s reaction… we thought the same until all the players stormed home plate.

HOUSTON NOTES
Offense:
• Davis tied his career-high with four hits in a 4-for-5 showing. The Austin native finished with three singles, one home run, five RBI and one run scored.
• Burckel finished 2-for-4, recording his first career triple and accounting for a career-high three runs scored.
• Triolo went 1-for-3 with a single, walk, RBI and two runs scored. He has reached base in all 14 games to open the season.
• Senior center fielder Grayson Padgett, (1-for-3) Esau (1-for-2), Etzel (1-for-1) and Way (1-for-4) also collected one hit, respectively. Both Esau’s and Etzel’s base hits came in pinch-hit appearances in the seventh. For Esau, his RBI single marked the first hit of his Houston career, while Etzel recorded his first hit of the season, later adding to it with a stolen base in the eighth inning, also his first of 2019.
• The walkoff marked Houston’s third of the season, with all three coming at home. Junior shortstop Kobe Hyland hit a walk-off home run against Northwestern State on Opening Night , and Lovelace hit a walk-off single against the Demons in the second game of the series.

Pitching:
• Senior right-handed pitcher Devon Roedahl (3-0) picked up his team-leading third win of the season, with all coming out out of the bullpen. The native of Beaumont, Texas, tossed a scoreless ninth, getting out of an error-aided, bases-loaded jam. He finished with two walks and one strikeout.
• Sophomore Clay Aguilar was tagged for four runs (two earned) on four hits in a third of an inning in the start.
• Senior Nolan Bond limited Army to one run on two hits in two and two-third innings to get through the third inning. He walked none and struck out two.
• Junior Brayson Hurdsman tossed the next three innings. After two scoreless frames, he surrendered a two-run home run in the sixth.
• Sophomore Ron Brown and junior Fred Villarreal turned in scoreless seventh and eighth innings, respectively.

Was nice to get a sweep. Overall good weekend. One thing that drives me nuts is how many times our pitchers get ahead in the count 0 and 2 then proceed to let them back in usually going to a full count. Wish they would attack more.
