Zack Swasey had three of UH’s four hits, including a two-out, two-run single in the first.

Gallagher (4-1) allowed four hits in seven innings with one walk and five strikeouts. Randy Yard tossed a perfect eighth inningand Linsky worked out of trouble in the ninth for his sixth save.

Kolten Wong walked twice and scored both times, stealing two bases in the ninth before Jeff Van Doornum’s two-out single gave UH a 3-0 lead.

UH returns to the field on Friday to host the first of four games against Louisiana Tech.
