MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Connor Alexander tossed a career-best seven innings and struck out a career-high seven batters to lead Memphis to a 6-2 win against No. 20 Houston on Saturday. The victory clinched a second consecutive American Athletic Conference series win.

With one out Darien Tubbs singled to score Chafin and tie the game. Zach Schritenthal then drove in Jake Overbey with a safety squeeze bunt. Houston pitcher Seth Romero made an errant throw on a pickoff attempt that allowed Tubbs to score from third. The final run came home on a sacrifice fly by Kane Barrow.
