HOUSTON - The University of Houston softball program took down UNLV (11-7) and the University of Nevada (2-1) in their final day of the Gaucho Classic hosted by UC-Santa Barbara.

The Cougars righted the ship as they fell to their first three opponents during the opening two days of the tournament but swept the Nevada schools today to improve to 9-5 on the year.

"Being able to come out today after our performances over the first two days is something to be excited about," said head coach Kyla Holas.

"We turned around our performances in a moment when we were getting frustrated and overwhelmed. For a coach, that's something to take away from this weekend and be excited and proud about how the team handled adversity and battled through it."

GAME 1 UNLV W, 11-7 (6-7) - Box Score PDF
Houston's set a program-record for stolen bases in a game (7) to go along with an explosive offensive output against UNLV. After struggling to string together hits the first two days, the Cougars went for a season-high of 18 hits in their win over UNLV.

Ashleigh Jones (2), Holly Anderson, Reina Gaber, Jennifer Klinkert, Melissa Gregson and Sydney Gerbracht were the base thieves that set the record today.

 

 

For the season, Houston is 37-for-40 in steals.

In addition to the in game adjustments, Holas switched juniors Reina Gaber and Holly Anderson in the line up today. The move paid off big time in both games as Gaber went 5-for-5 with two doubles, four RBIs. Gaber almost hit for the cycle as her last hit one-bounced to the fence, leaving her just short of the cycle.

Anderson also had a fine game as well as she went 1-for-4 with a steal, two runs scored and driven in.

"Holly has owned that second spot in the line up before and does a great job moving runners up the bases with her bunting. I just wanted to give Reina some more pitches to see and it really paid off."

Houston jumped ahead 6-0 by the fourth inning before Bailey Watts allowed her first run of the game. The Rebels added four runs between the fourth and fifth inning to put pressure on Houston before the Cougars posted five of their own runs over the next two innings.

Things heated up even more in the seventh as Watts loaded the bases with no outs and Houston turned to freshman Ty'ara Law to come in and close the game out. Law was able to get the Cougars out of the jam after an error by the Houston defense allowed two runs to score.

Freshman Jaime Edwards hit a three-run homer in the first inning to give Houston the quick 3-0 advantage. Edwards has hit two home runs this year and has over half her RBIs (13) from the two blasts.

Sophomore Haley Outon added her fourth home run of the season, leading the Cougars in that category, in the seventh inning to give Houston their third multi-home run game of the year.

GAME 2 NEVADA W, 2-1 (3-10) - Box Score PDF

After the first game spanned two hours and 44 minutes, the Cougars made quick work out of Nevada as the game ended in just an hour and 20 minutes. Houston kept the same line up as the first game and this time it was Anderson's time to shine as the Dickinson, Texas, native went 3-for-3 with a run and an RBI and missed the cycle by a triple.

Anderson's solo home run gave Houston the game-winning run in the fifth inning as sophomore Diedre Outon cruised past the Wolfpack hitters posting a complete-game with four strikeouts and four hits allowed. The sophomore improved her record to 3-1 on the year.
