PROVO, Utah - A five-run first inning helped pave the way for the University of Houston softball team (20-10, 8-1) to claim a 7-3 win over BYU (14-16, 4-0) on Friday evening. The Cougars mashed four doubles and a triple in the first inning for their biggest opening output of the season.

Houston batted around the lineup and totaled five hits in the frame. Freshman Katie St. Pierre led things off with a single before she and Haley Outon came around to score on Taylor Duplechain's second triple of the year.

St. Pierre's single extended her hitting streak to 16 games, the longest on the team this year.

Three consecutive doubles by Kayla Holland, Jaime Edwards and Julia Pecina allowed UH to switch out runners at second base while each of them drove in a run.

Bailey Watts (12-3), battling through an illness, held BYU to zero earned runs off five hits with three strikeouts.

UH struck in bunches again in the fifth inning as the Cougars strung together four consecutive hits to extend their lead to 7-0. Holland rocked a double off the right-center wall for her second two-bagger of the game to start the rally. Edwards and Pecina followed with singles and freshman Jessica Snyder capped the scoring spree with her second single of the game.

The bottom of the line up for Houston was very productive, batting 8-for-15 with five RBI between Holland (2-for-3, 2 RBI), Edwards (2-for-4, 2 RBI), Pecina (2-for-4, 1 RBI) and Snyder (2-for-4, 1 RBI). Holland hit a career high two doubles in the contest.

BYU answered Houston's scores in the bottom of the fifth with three runs coming unearned off three UH errors. The Cougars committed five in the game for a season-high tally but only suffered damage from the miscues in the fifth inning.

Houston outhit BYU 12-5 in the game including six extra base hits (five doubles, one triple).

UP NEXT
Houston and BYU meet tomorrow in a doubleheader starting at 2 p.m. (CST). Both games will be televised on BYUtv.
