Seventh inning debacle leads to Cougars losing weekend series to Wildcats

A seventh-inning meltdown on defense, in which the Cougars gave up five runs, led to Houston’s 10-6 loss against the Arizona Wildcats on Sunday afternoon at Hi Corbett Field.

Freshman left fielder Rey Mendoza had the hot bat for Houston early, hitting an RBI single in the third and launching a 1-1 pitch over the right-field fence in the fifth, which marked the first home run of his career.

Sophomore outfielder Brad Burckel gave the Cougars a 4-3 lead in the top of the sixth with a solo shot to right field before the wheels fell off the team.
