Freshman left hander Cody Dickson and senior right hander Justin Jackson combined to limit Rice to five hits as Sam Houston shut out the No. 14 ranked Owls 7-0 at Reckling Park in Houston Tuesday night.

The Bearkats, now 11-2 for the year, are beginning to look like a contender in the Southland Conference as SHSU rolled up its 10th consecutive victory.

Dickson faced 23 batters in five and one-third innings to earn the victory. He allowed only four hits and struck out two Owls. Jackson earned the save as he pitched the final three and two-thirds innings, giving up only one hit and striking out one of the 11 batters he faced.

Chris Andreas, Greg Olson and Daniel Nottebart produced a pair of singles each as the Bearkats picked up their seven runs on nine hits and one Rice error.

The Bearkats struck first in the second inning as catcher John Hale singled and moved to third on a Nottebart double. Payton Wisener singled to center field to score both runners.

Andreas, Mark Hudson and Olson hit three consecutive doubles to add two more tallies in the third.

Wisener scored in the fourth, walking then reaching second on a balk and third on a ground out then scoring on a grounder by Ryan Mooney.

Olson and Nottebart produced two more runs in the fifth.

Andrew Benak was the losing pitcher for Rice. The Owls used four pitchers during the game.

Sam Houston State returns to Don Sanders Stadium for the Bearkats' opening Southland Conference series this weekend. SHSU plays host to UT-Arlington with games Friday at 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.
