Transcript THEM A UH baseball player safely slides into base as an opponent tries to tag him out. Photo by Dale Toney. Close, but Throughout the baseball season, it appeared that the Cougars were going to have an excellent chance of reaching the NCAA playoffs, but inconsistency against fellow SWC teams proved to be their downfall. After starting the season with 14 consecutive wins, it was almost certain that the squad would appear in post-season play. The team went through a hot streak throughout the first half of the season, receiving national attention on their way to a 29-2 mark. Many people felt that the Coogs' record was a fluke since the record reflected games versus non-conference opponents. The team had a chance to prove those skeptics wrong when they faced the Arkansas Razorbacks, but as fate would have it, the team was swept 10-1, 3-0, and 8-3. Although the team bounced back to sweep lowly Texas Christian (8-7, 5-4 and 9-3), their hot-streak had already disappeared. UH then lost two of three to Baylor, won two of three over Rice, and was swept by Texas 5- 2, 9-3 and 10-8. The Coogs then managed to take one game of three from top-ranked Texas A&M and was assured of playing in the SWC tournament after taking two of three from Texas Tech. Houston and Texas Tech had identical conference records but UH had an overall better record and had won the head-to-head series two to one. The first opponent in the tourney was #1 rated A&M. UH lost that game 15-3, but because of the double-elimination set-up, still had a chance. Arkansas, however, took away all hopes for UH as they won 5-4, thus ending the Coogs' season. ► Henry Reyna 244 ■ Sports
