NORMAN, Okla. - The University of Houston softball team surrendered a 6-0 loss to the No. 1 Oklahoma Sooners Friday afternoon at Marita Hynes Field. OU (16-0) used four two-out RBIs to win their home opener while the Cougars (8-6) dropped their first road contest of the year.

"Overall, we brought a better game of softball today than we did our last outing," said head coach Kyla Holas. "But it's clear that whenever you're playing the No. 1 team in the country, you have to be almost perfect.

"Everything they did, we gave up with two outs. They drew some walks and almost every pitch they hit was a pitch we missed. We need to be more consistent hitting our spots and taking the battle to the batter instead of the other way around."

The big inning for the Sooners came in the third inning when they added all four runs with two outs on the board. Starting pitcher Bailey Watts (4-2) recorded a pop up and liner to the first and third batters in the Sooner line up before a string of five hits with a walk in between pushed the lead to 4-0.

OU added a single insurance run in the fifth and sixth inning for the final margin 6-0.

The Cougars totaled five hits on the afternoon and broke up OU's Keilani Ricketts' (8-0) no-hit bid with a pair of singles to center in the fifth inning the second time through the batting order. Pinch hitter Sydney Gerbracht, who is 4-for-10 when serving in that role this year, delivered a single through Ricketts' wickets as the shot went straight back up the middle and through the pitcher's legs before she had time to react. Sophomore Kayla Holland followed Gerbracht with a single of her own but the rally fizzled with both runners stranded.

The Cougars added two more hits in the sixth and another Holland (2-for-3) single gave Houston their final amount.

Bailey Watts (4-2) started in the circle for the Cougars and while the junior struggled with her placement, walking seven batters, she was able to work out of jams with three strikeouts with runners on base. Overall, OU left eight runners on base compared to the Cougars seven.

Houston travels to Stillwater (Okla.) tomorrow for a doubleheader against OSU starting at 1:30 p.m.
