COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The University of Houston Softball team used two big innings to down Texas Tech, 8-2, on Saturday night at Aggie Softball Complex as part of the Aggie Classic.

With the win, the Cougars improve to 3-1 on the season, while the Red Raiders fall to 1-3.

Senior shortstop Mariah Garica highlighted the offense with a career night, going 3-for-4 with a double and her first career triple. Garcia's three hits were also a career best.

In the circle, sophomore Trystan Melancon (1-1) picked up her first win of the season. The native of Tomball, Texas, limited Texas Tech to two runs on six hits while walking one and tying her career-high with eight strikeouts.


KEY INNINGS
1st | After Texas Tech plated two runs to open the game, Houston jumped into the trenches and responded with a five-run bottom frame. Sophomore second baseman Arielle James led off with a hit and advanced to second on an infield single from junior right fielder Maya Thomas. Following a pop out and walk to senior left fielder Kaylin Crumpton that loaded the bases, Garcia delivered James and Thomas on a double to right field. In the next at bat, Crumpton scored on a wild pitch. Sophomore third baseman Sarah Queen followed with a walk before junior catcher Brooke Vannoy delivered Garcia on a single to right field.

4th | The Cougars added three insurance runs in the fourth. With two outs, Garcia hit a two-RBI triple down the right-field line, before later scoring on a wild pitch.

COUGAR SOFTBALL STADIUM UPGRADES
Thanks to a record year for the Diamond Club, Houston Softball announced the addition of an LED, Daktronics video board (completed) and indoor practice facility as major upgrades to Cougar Softball Stadium.

According to Daktronics, the new outfield video board will be the fifth largest at an on-campus softball stadium in the country and the largest in the state of Texas. The board, which will sit just beyond the left-field wall, will stand 29-feet-3.1-inches tall and measure 24-feet-4.0-inches wide with 576 square feet of space (24-feet by 24-feet) for live video, instant replays, statistics and scoring information, graphics and animations, and sponsor messages. The display features a 13HD pixel layout for crisp, clear imagery for a great view from every seat at the stadium.

The indoor facility, which will replace the current batting cage down the right-field line, will measure 70-feet by 80-feet. The 5,600-square-foot space will feature five batting cages, measuring 60-feet long by 15-feet wide each, with retractable nets for the space to be used in a variety of ways. The facility will have a synthetic turf floor and will be temperature controlled.

In total, the two capital projects represent $1.2 million in upgrades.
