Ninth-Inning Explosion Leads Cougars To Victory

Feb. 27, 2004

Box Score

HOUSTON, Texas - Even though it took them extra innings, the University of Houston improved to 13-6 on the year with a 5-0 win over Pittsburgh in nine innings at the Hyatt Regency Cougar Classic hosted at the Cougar Softball Complex.

Freshman Carla Kennimer and senior Jenny Johnson held the Panthers to just one hit, with Johnson going the final six innings to move to 5-4 on the year. Earlier in the day she set a UH single-season record by racking up her fifth save this season to preserve the Cougars' 3-1 win over Mississippi State.

With international rules in effect in the extra frame, the Cougars struck for five runs in the top of the ninth. Senior Arelis Ferreris began the inning at second base, and she scored on a bad-hop single to left field by junior Kristen Glowacz, with Glowacz moving up to second on the throw to the plate. Junior Jenilee Skender plated Glowacz with a double into the right-center gap, and her pinch runner, senior Jenny Baker, in turn scored on a double to left center by sophomore Brandi Clark.

After two outs and with Clark on third, sophomore Brooke Johnson singled up the middle for a 4-0 Houston lead. Sophomore Jaci Gonzalez kept the inning alive with an infield single, and when junior Kim Nesloney reached on a fielding error by Pitt first baseman Casey Pickard, Brooke Johnson hustled all the way home to score Houston's fifth run.

 

 

Jenny Johnson closed out the game by striking out the last two Pittsburgh batters. Johnson struck out nine and walked just one in lowering her season ERA to a paltry 0.49.

Offensively, both Gonzalez and Brooke Johnson went two-for-four, while Ferreris, Glowacz, Skender, Clark and pinch-hitter Jeanie Davis picked up the other hits for the Cougars.

Houston closes out their portion of the Hyatt Regency Cougar Classic with a 5 pm game versus Virginia and a 7 pm contest against Villanova.
