The Sam Houston baseball team was stifled by Tulane's Tony Rizzotti, who pitched a complete game one-hitter to beat the Kats 2-0 on the first day of the Bobcat Invitational in San Marcos.

The sophomore righty struck out five batters while just issuing one walk in nine innings. Rizzotti, a transfer from Grayson College and previously TCU, was pitching in his first game since 2011.

Jessie Plumlee had the Kats only hit, a single up the middle in the third inning. Plumlee then stole second and moved to third on an error before being stranded. Plumlee reached base again later in the game on a walk.

Caleb Smith struggled to stay in the strike zone in through four and two-thirds innings. Smith allowed seven walks while striking out four. However, he only allowed one run on one hit.

Freshman Juan Cortina pitched 2.1 innings in relief. Cortina allowed one run on two hits, while striking out four.

Derek Barosh pitched the final two innings for the Kats. Barosh only allowed one batter to reach base, via walk, and had three strikeouts.

The Bearkats will be back in action against Missouri State Saturday at 5 p.m.
