Need to get some revenge on the Owls
In today’s Chronicle, I saw an ad that said tickets start at $15. Start at? And yet you could pick up $2 tickets at UH for the home game of this series.
We really leave a lot of money on the table for baseball. If you want to see us play, most would pay $8 instead of the $2 deal we have
It’ll be interesting to see who they go with on the mound tomorrow. Henry is probably a no go after the last outing. I’m thinking some combination of Hurdsman, Bielamowicz, Pulido and maybe Fletcher/Villareal (though I realize those two pitched a decent amount over the weekend).
I think they give Henry another shot; need him to gain confidence.
But wouldn’t be surprised to see Pulido out there. He didnt warm up at all over the weekend.
If he puts Henry out there first, I sure hope he has a much shorter leash than last week.
I’d imagine Henry will have a very short leash if he’s out there.
Totally agree with this statement. I seriously doubt that there has been anyone say, hey tickets to the baseball game are $2, let’s go. $2 or $8 is not going to cause someone to go. However, $2 hot dogs will sell a few more.
I suspect someone else will start but Henry will be brought in to relief with a very short leash.
QUICK HITS ON RICE
Rice will host Houston on Tuesday, owning an 11-23 overall record and a 6-12 mark at Reckling Park.

SILVER GLOVE SERIES HISTORY VS. RICE
Houston and Rice have met 182 times in program history, dating back to 1948.
The Owls own the overall series, 104-78, but Houston has won the series the last three seasons.
The Silver Glove Series officially began in 1998.
Houston was 2-1 last season vs. Rice with a 10-0 and 24-6 win, while falling 7-4.
Last Meeting | April 4, 2017 | Rice 9, Houston 0
The two teams will meet once more after Tuesday in Sugar Land on May 9.
I can’t believe that this game will be played tonight.
Tarp’s off, lineup is posted, one change as Nick Slaughter gets his turn in the 8 hole as I’m guessing they want Bielamowicz available in the pen tonight
