C-USA Game 2: Rice 16, UCF 6

Central Florida held a 3-2 lead in the middle of the fourth inning of its Conference USA Baseball Tournament game before top-seeded Rice came alive. The second-ranked Owls scored five in the bottom of the fourth and went on to claim a 16-6 decision in a game ended by the league's 10-run rule. C-USA Freshman of the Year Ryan Berry improved to 10-2 on the mound with the win.

UCF appeared to be on its way out of the fourth without any damage; the Owls scored all five of their runs with two outs in the frame. Rice added four in the fifth and three in the sixth to claim its 19th straight victory.

The Golden Knights will face Houston in a 9 a.m. elimination contest that will begin Thursday's action in the tournament. Rice will take on Memphis at 4 p.m. on Thursday.
