Huntsville - Three freshmen pitchers, Cody Dickson, Caleb Smith and Matt Walker combined with sophomore Michael Burchett to shut out Houston Baptist as Sam Houston State won 13-0 in its 2011 home opener at Don Sanders Stadium Tuesday night.

Dickson, a lefthander from Mansfield, struck out seven and gave up only two hits in four innings. Smith, a hometown Huntsville product, struck out three Huskies in the next three innings. Walked and Burchett each pitched one inning.

The Bearkat pitching staff allowed the Huskies only five hits.

The victory upped Sam Houston's record to 2-2 while HBU stands 0-4. The shutout was the first for Sam Houston since a 10-0 home win over Texas Southern in the 30th game of the 2010 season.

Sam Houston totaled 14 hits with infielder Ryan Mooney, centerfielder Mark Hudson, right fielder Greg Olsen and catcher John Hale all picking up a pair of hits.

Second baseman Braeden Riley, Hudson, Olsen and second baseman Jesse Plumlee each posted a pair of RBIs.

The Bearkats will host Nebraska and Northern Colorado in the Sam Houston Invitational tournament .
