The University of Houston-Victoria baseball team hit five home runs in its 8-6 win over Lambuth University on Thursday night at Riverside Stadium. The Jaguars successfully opened the Association of Independent Institutions Baseball Championship. The five home runs brought UHV's season total to 80 in 45 games. The wind was blowing out to left field as it usually does, but only one of the home runs could be considered wind-blown. Leo Garcia's blast in the seventh inning went between the top of the two trees behind the left-center field fence. The Jaguars hope to continue the power display in Friday's 3 p.m. game against LSU-Alexandria. A win would put them in Saturday's 1 p.m. championship game.
