HOUSTON - The Rice baseball team collected double-digit hits and rode a solid start from senior pitcher Chase McDowell for a 6-1 victory over visiting Houston Baptist in the Owls' return to action Wednesday night at Reckling Park.
The baseball team had been off the last ten days while the University was in its final exams period of the spring semester. The Owls did not appear to miss a beat, finishing with 13 hits. Five starters had at least two hits in the contest, led by Connor Teykl's season-high tying 3-for-4 night with a pair of RBI.
First baseman Skyler Ewing blasted his team-leading seventh home run of the season in the bottom of the sixth to give Rice a 4-1 lead. The Blue & Gray added two more insurance runs in the eighth for a 6-1 final. The Owls held off an HBU rally in the bottom of the ninth as the Huskies loaded the bases.
McDowell worked a total of 6.2 innings to earn his fourth win of the season. The senior from College Station, Texas, allowed one run on eight hits and a walk while striking out two. Trevor Teykl (1.1 IP) and Jon Duplantier (1.0) pitched the final relief frames.
Rice improved to 32-15 overall. The win marked the 12th consecutive season for the Owls to win their first game coming back from the annual exams break. HBU is now 22-23 on the year.
The Owls next return to Conference USA league play with a three-game weekend series at Texas-San Antonio May 9-11. Friday's series-opener is set for 6 pm.
