UH saw Sam Houston come into Cougar Field for a Tuesday night midweek game and leave with a 5-4 victory.

UH (29-11, 6-6) lost a game of dramatic hits and 12 pitching changes. The back-and-forth affair — which lasted three hours and 25 minutes before Sam Houston took the lead for good — saddled UH pitcher Aaron Stewart with his second loss of the season. The winning run was scored on a sac fly that saw left fielder Michael Pyeatt drill a throw into the ground short of the cutoff man.

The game saw seven UH pitchers combine to allow only four earned runs and walk only three, while senior first baseman Casey Grayson extended his on-base streak to 14 consecutive games. Sophomore right fielder Kyle Survance stole two bases to raise his season total to 21, surpassing his total from his Freshman All-American season last year. Senior pinch hitter Jacob Lueneberg notched another extra base pinch hit.

UH is now 1-1 against Sam Houston for the season, having beaten them the previous week in Huntsville.
