HOUSTON - Eleventh-ranked Long Beach State held the Rice baseball team to five hits on the way to a 4-1 win over the Owls on the second day of action at the Coca-Cola Classic Tournament Saturday afternoon at Reckling Park.
Long Beach starting pitcher Andrew Carpenter scattered three hits over seven innings, striking out eight and walking two to earn his first win of the season. He was relieved by Donnie Hume, who kept a ninth-inning Rice rally in check to earn his second save of the season.
The 49ers scored a pair of runs in the top of the third inning off a base hit, two walks and three steals to take a 2-0 lead. The Owls answered with a run in the bottom of the fourth when Joe Savery drew a one-out walk and scored on a double by Danny Lehmann. Long Beach came back with a run in the top of the fifth and an unearned run in the eighth off the Owl bullpen. Savery (1-1) started on the mound and took the loss. He allowed five hits and two walks in 4.2 innings with four strikeouts.
Rice had two men on base in both the seventh and ninth innings. Long Beach worked out of the jams to improve to 6-3 on the season. Rice fell to 5-2 with its first home loss. The round-robin tournament concludes Sunday at Reckling Park. Long Beach State meets Oklahoma at noon. The Owls host Lamar at 3:30 pm.
