C-USA Game 1: Memphis 12, Houston 4

Brennon Martin threw his first career complete game to lead Memphis to a 12-4 victory in the opening game of the 2007 Conference USA Baseball Tournament.

In addition to Martin's efforts on the mound, the long ball played a major factor in the game. Memphis hit four home runs in the game and Houston had two - and would have had three had K.K. Chalmers not snagged a ball in center field that was headed over the fence. The four homers set a new single-game record for Memphis. Michael Murray also extended his hitting streak for the Tigers to 16 games.

The Tigers advance to face the winner of the Rice-UCF game, which will begin at 12:30 p.m. EDT. The next Memphis game is slated for 4 p.m. on Thursday. The Cougars fall to the losers bracket and will face the loser of the upcoming game in an elimination contest Thursday at 9 a.m.
