HOUSTON - The Cougars busted out six runs in the third inning to post an 8-0 run-rule victory and complete the doubleheader sweep over Texas A&M - Corpus Christi Tuesday evening.

Houston improved to 24-15 on the year and winners of 14 of their last 16 games. Bailey Watts (10-6) took the win for Houston, allowing only one hit with five strikeouts in the abbreviated action.

"Our pitchers did a very good job implementing everything we did in practice this week," head coach Kyla Holas said. "Overall I'm pleased, there were a couple of things we could have done better but it was a good performance today. We're on track where we need to be and we'll start getting ready for ECU tomorrow."

Before the Cougars big inning, Melissa Gregson got things going for Houston as the senior connected on her fourth home run of the year, scoring Holly Anderson who reached via a walk.

Gregson went 2-for-3 with the home run and four RBIs. Her only out was a fly ball to straight-ahead-center caught at the fence.

"She's (Gregson) really important to us and we need her to step up this time of year. I'm glad to see that because she's a huge part of this lineup."

Houston chipped in four hits, a walk and Kendra Cullum received her team-leading sixth hit by a pitch to overwhelm the Islanders in the third frame.

Haley Outon started the big inning as she led off the single up the middle.

Haley went 2-for-3 on the afternoon to extend her 11 game hitting streak. The sophomore is batting .484 during the span (16-for-33) and would have an even longer streak had she not been the recipient of three walks in three at bats against UTEP on March 8. She has also reached base in 16 straight games.

The 11-game hitting streak ties Reina Gaber's start to the 2012 campaign for the team lead.

Jennifer Klinkert followed suit to Outon's single and after Klinkert was forced out at third, the next four batters sent to the plate would score. Jaime Edwards and Sydney Gerbracht would both reach on fielders choice and come around to score off Holly Anderson's walk and Ashleigh Jones infield single.

Gregson plated two runs with her single to cap the big inning.

Houston improved to 9-0 on the year when their leadoff batter scores. Houston's leadoff batter Anderson went 1-1 on the day with two walks and an RBI.

In the three games between the two teams this year, the Cougars outscored Texas A&M - Corpus Christi by a margin of 22-0.

UP NEXT
The Cougars host East Carolina for a Conference USA series this weekend with Saturday's doubleheader starting at 2 p.m. The first game of that series will be televised live on Fox Sports.
