AUSTIN, Texas - A three-run, seventh-inning rally led Houston to a 5-4 win over Texas on Wednesday evening at Red & Charline McCombs Field. Houston improved to 13-10 on the year with the win and evened up the season series (1-1) with Texas (18-15).

The pivotal seventh inning came thanks to four Houston hits including three-straight RBI singles. The rally began off the elbow of Kendra Cullum for the 73rd time in her career she’s been hit by a pitch, and continued with Tiffani McKnight following with a single.

Jaime Edwards (1-for-4, RBI) shrugged off an 0-for-3 effort at the plate with three strikeouts to deliver the first clutch RBI single to bring the disadvantage down to 4-3 and the Cougars hopes up. Junior Kayla Holland followed by supplying another single and then swiped second base to put two runners in scoring position for Sydney Gerbracht. Gerbracht followed suit with the fourth single of the inning to give Houston the 5-4 lead.

Houston maintained the lead for most of the action as they captured a 2-0 advantage in the third inning thanks to some hustle on the base paths. A two-out fly ball to shallow center by Cullum turned into a single and more as the diving effort by the Longhorn centerfielder allowed the ball to bounce off her glove. Katie St. Pierre, who passed underneath the ball while it was in flight as she was heading from first to second, charged around the bases and was able to score on the play to give UH the early lead. Cullum displayed the same hustle as the next batter, Tiffani McKnight, reached base via a throwing error and Cullum took home on the miscue.

Texas tied it at 2-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning thanks to a two-run double by Lindsey Stephens. The double extended her 34-game reached base streak and knotted the game even. The Longhorns added another two-run outburst in the next inning to lead 4-2.

Diedre Outon started in the circle for UH and lasted five innings before being chased out during the sixth frame. The Pflugerville, Texas, native turned the ball over to Julana Shrum and the leftie closed out the sixth unscathed to end the damage. Shrum dealt 2.0 innings of scoreless relief pitching to pick up the win (4-3).
