Transcript Hey Batter, Batter!! by D. Ryan Nonceaux Senior pitcher jon McDonald unleashes one against Illinois. In his four seasons at UH, McDonald was a constant on a pitching staff that encountered constant struggles. Photo by Pete Medrano The UH baseball team went through the emotional rollercoaster that was the 1998 season in relative obscurity. Although this year's squad finished the year just one game out in the Conference-USA race, the team attracted little attention and did not even recieve a consideration for a regional bid. The team played one of toughest out-of-conference schedules in the nation, yet did not fare well in season long series against ranked teams such as Texas A&M, Rice, Baylor, Oklahoma, and Alabama. Coach Rayner Noble decided to play tougher teams this season instead of the usual lineup ofTSU, Lamar, and McNeese St. among others. However, this idea may be the reason that UH did not repeat its bid in a regional tournament. Houston played very impressively during the run for the C-USA regular season title. The Cougars earned a conference record of 21-6 during the regular season, including a series win versus Tulane at Cougar Field. However, an unlikely villian, UNC-Charlotte, swept UH in Charlotte in April, effectively destroying the Coogs' bid for the C-USA title. UNC-C also beat UH in the conference tournament at Zephyr Field in New Orleans, which was the beginning of the end for UH in the double elimination tournament. After beating Memphis in the first round, UH lost late inning leads to UNC-C and to Southern Miss to make an early exit from the tournament. After working all season for the second seed, UH did not take advantage of its position and was ousted before the weekend. The regular season, however, did have its bright spots for a team that did finish 35-24. This season included sweeps over Michigan, Illinois, South Florida, Cincinnati, UAB, Southern Miss and Memphis. However, the Cougars were spotted with a 1-8 record right out of the shoot, including five losses against teams that reached an NCAA regional. But with a schedule that included five weekends in a row at home beginning with the Marriott West Loop Houston Invitational, UH steadily improved and with a 12-10 victory over Michigan on March 8, reached the .500 mark for the first time of the season. Houston's solid play during weekend series continued through the end of March until the weekend in North Carolina against UNC-Charlotte. However, with the advent of the Sterling Bank Series against Rice, UH struggled all season in its non-conference, weekday games. Without a deep pitching staff, the Coogs were suspect to giving up huge games against some of the best hitters in Continued on pg. 215 Right fielder Eric Lee slides to catch a pop fly against Rice at Cameron Field. Lee came on strong to hit two homeruns in the C-USA tourney. Photo by Pete Medrano Baseball 111
