After a 5-4 Rice win in the opening game of the set on Thursday night the series is tied 1-1. Saturday's finale of the weekend set is scheduled for 1 pm (a time change from some earlier listings).
Tulane scored three of its runs early in the contest. Nick Schneeberger hit a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning. The Green Wave then added two in the second after a leadoff single by Jeremy Schaffer and a walk by Frank Florio put runners on first and second base. The runners advanced on a sacrifice bunt and scored on a double by Brennan Middleton.
Rice struck for a run in the fourth. Christian Stringer bunted for a base hit and hustled to second on a Tulane throwing error on the play. He scored on an RBI single by Michael Fuda that made the score 3-1.
The Green Wave started off the fifth with a Troy McCartney double and scored on a two-out single by Schneeberger to make it 4-1.
It was still a tight two-run margin late and the Blue & Gray twice looked to have a rally in the works. Rice stranded a man in scoring position in the seventh and two men on base in the eighth. Tulane however added three insurance runs on a hit and four walks in the bottom of the eighth to stretch the final margin to 7-2.
The Rice offense reached double-digit hits for the 13th time this season. Michael Aquino, Keenan Cook, Chargois and Stringer all had two hits in the game. Five Owl pitchers worked on the night, allowing nine hits and a total of eight walks.
Rice fell to 22-11 on the season and 5-3 in Conference USA action. Tulane is now to 21-9 overall and 3-2 in league play.
