"When you are leaving your defense out there too long that's what happens," Houston coach Major Applewhite said. "When you give a great back that many at-bats and that many opportunities, one is going to hit at some point and it did."
"What you realize, especially these guys with not just one coaching change but two and three coaching changes, at some point you've got to play for the brand," Applewhite said. "You got to ride for the brand and that's what these guys do. They play for the city, they play for the university."
