STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Houston got a strong outing from starter Jordan Lewis, keeping the Cowboys' offense in check and lifting the Cougars to an 8-1 win Saturday.

Lewis (3-2) pitched seven innings for Houston, giving up eight hits, but just one earned run, striking out four in his outing. The only earned run came in the bottom of the fourth, a solo home run by Gabe Weidenaar, leading 3-0.

Randy McCurry (2-2) came away with a loss for the outing, giving up five earned runs on six hits, striking out five in his four innings of service.

Casey Grayson set the pace for the Cougars' offense early, driving in their first three runs of the game. With Jacob Luenberg on first in the top of the second, Grayson doubled to left center to bring Luenberg home to take a 1-0 lead. Grayson struck again in the top of the fourth, hitting a two-run double to put Houston up 3-0.

Leading 3-1 in the top of the fifth, Landon Appling knocked a leadoff home run to push the Cougars' lead back to three runs.

Two at-bats later, Chase Jensen reaches on a fielding error, allowing Zack Gibson to score and putting Houston in front 5-1. Luenberg followed with an RBI single to bring Taylor White home and take a 6-1 lead.

In the top of the eighth, Jensen did his part, hitting a two-run double to put Houston ahead with a comfortable lead.

Oklahoma State will try to avoid dropping back-to-back games against Houston as they close out the series at 1 p.m. Sunday.
