Transcript Season leaves players PRAYING for rain A, Tmost exactly one month after Williams shut down Rice for 10 1/3 innings, Haas hurled a 15-inning, 197- pitch complete game against those same Owls at Cougar Field. This time UH manages a little run support, finally beating the Owls 5-4, their only win over their crosstown rivals all season. The next week, Haas picked up right where he left off, only this time against the big boys. The junior went up to Austin and handcuffed the Texas Longhorns with a dazzling assortment of sliders, hear and offspeed junk, earning a 4-1 decision. Only six Texas batters reached base as Haas allowed only five hits and one walk. It was the Cougars first win at Texas' Disch-Falk Field since Doug Drabek outdueled Texas' Roger Clemens in 1983. Overall UH split the season series with the Longhorns 3-3. And herein lies the rub for the 1992 edition of the Houston Cougars, how can a team lose five of six to the improved buy still inferior Rice Owls, but split the season series with Texas, a squad who in all likelihood is headed to the College World Series in Omaha? It's a question that does not submit to an easy answer. It was a combi- ation of numerous factors: —Senior Rusty Smajstrla, on om Stockton was relying for a big year, batted .323 overall, but only, but only .190 in Conference with no hom ers and only five RBI's. --Sophomore shortstop R.D. Long, a transfer from Arizona from whom big things were expected, batted a decent .272, but registered only an .848 fielding percentage, atrocious for a shortstop. —Senior catcher Chris Tremie cemented his position as the finest defensive catcher in the conference, regu- larly picking off runners at first, but could manage only a .184 batting average with no homers and only 15 RBI, second lowest on team. The '92 Coogs were a classic Jekyll photo by Thomas Nguyen nati and Hyde team—Jekyll on the mound and Hyde off of it. This was also a team that, other than, Tremie, caught no breaks at all. They were 5-10 in one-run games. A .956 team fielding percentage led to 61 unearned runs, a whopping 27% of the total yielding. Yet the final indignity came fittingly enough on the last day of the season. After rebounding to an 8-8 SWC record in the season's second half, the Cougars needed to take both halves of a doubleheader at home against Texas Tech to finish out of the cellar. Finally Stockton's squad had something to play for. Both games were rained out. It was the perfect ending to a less-than-perfect season. -Marty Hajovsky t's going to be a close call...
