HOUSTON - The University of Houston softball team won 8-0 over Memphis to complete the series sweep Sunday afternoon at Cougar Softball Stadium. Both Holly Anderson and Kayla Holland hit home runs in the fourth inning as Houston piled on seven for the run-rule decision in five innings. Pitchers Diedre Outon and Bailey Watts combined for the one-hit shutout as the Cougars improved to 18-13 on the year and 7-2 in league play.

The Cougars are winners of eight straight games, their longest streak of the season after starting the season winning the first six games.

"The pitching staff is starting to get confidence and understand what it takes to win ball games," said head coach Kyla Holas, "But we've still got a tough schedule ahead of us to go, starting with Texas on Wednesday. We hope the things they've learned will pay off."

"Offensively, we were able to work hard all week since there was no midweek game, and that really paid off."

The Cougars used scoring innings of 4, 5 and 7 runs to outscore Memphis 23-1 over the weekend as the pitching duo of Outon and Watts only eight hits in 18 innings. Memphis fell to 7-25, 0-9 on the year.

Anderson tied Haley Outon for the team lead in home runs (8) as she delivered a three-run blast to start the two-out scoring spree. Haley Outon's line drive double down the left field line scored Melissa Gregson before Holland was called in to pinch hit. The Katy, Texas, native responded with her first career home run and pushed the score to 8-0 and end the game after five innings.

Diedre Outon threw the first two innings before Holas turned the ball over to Watts. Watts struck out six of the nine batters she faced to receive the win, her sixth straight, and improve to 9-4 on the year.

Outon relied on her defense make several great plays in the first inning as Jennifer Klinkert and Gaber laid out to make diving catches on line drives.

"We're starting to gain our confidence and getting the ball rolling," said Holly Anderson. "We've been working hard as a team and we all have each other's back."

Houston gained a 1-0 advantage in the third inning when Haley Outon drove in 29th RBI of the year and scored Reina Gaber scored from third base. Gaber added an RBI single of her own in the fourth and continued her torrid pace with runners in scoring position as she's hitting .556 on the year in the situation and leading the team.
