After sweeping a double-header against Huston-Tillotson over the weekend, UHV's win streak was snapped in a 7-4 loss to Texas College on Friday.
UHV (7-11) used five different pitchers to battle Texas College, but the Jaguars' offense couldn't produce enough runs, leaving eight runners on base in the loss.
Tyler Vakey was credited with the loss for UHV, pitching 11/3 innings and giving up a walk, a strikeout and allowing one run to score. Orlando Quiroga got the start for the Jaguars. He lasted four innings and gave up six hits and two walks for three runs and recorded four strikeouts. Matt Brister, Cody Carver and Cory Hulsey all saw time on the mound for UHV.
Texas College got on the scoreboard first with three runs in the bottom of the third, but the Jaguars tied the game at 3-3 after scoring two runs in the fifth and another in sixth innings.
However, Texas College would score four runs over the next two innings to take a 7-3 lead.
The Jaguars pushed one run across home plate in the eighth, but could not muster any more offense.
Second baseman Ryan Suescun led UHV at the plate with one hits and two RBIs.
