HOUSTON - The Cougars comeback fell short in a 7-6 loss to East Carolina Sunday afternoon at Cougar Softball Stadium. Houston took two of three games in the weekend series to remain in second place in Conference USA standings with a road trip to league-leading Tulsa ahead next weekend.

Sophomore Diedre Outon started the game and suffered five runs in the decision before Houston turned the ball over to Summer Groholski. After the freshman got through the second inning, Bailey Watts threw the remainder of the game allowing one run and six strikeouts.

ECU got ahead 7-1 after the first three innings before Watts was able to keep Houston in the game. The Cougars collected nine hits after the lead was allowed and fell to 26-16 and 11-4 on the year.

The score was tied 1-1 after the first inning as Ashleigh Jones reached first on a walk and stole second before Melissa Gregson's single scored Jones from second. Gregson would steal second before being stranded as Houston continued to put the pressure on the Pirates catcher. Houston stole nine bases over the weekend, and were No. 25 in the NCAA in steals per game (1.65).

Haley Outon, Holly Anderson and Kendra Cullum also added steals in the game.

ECU would gain the big advantage in the second inning as they sprayed the ball around the outfield and scored five runs in the inning. Centerfielder Ashleigh Jones made the final out of the inning throwing a runner out at home after two other near outs from Jones' throws to the plate.

Houton added two more runs in the fifth inning with Haley Outon scoring off Jennifer Klinkert's team-leading 10th double of the year. This was the first double of the season where she scored on the same play as a throw was made on Outon at home plate and Klinkert raced around third to score as the ball went past the catcher.

Haley again scored in the seventh inning but the rally fell short and Houston lost to ECU for the Pirates first road win of the year.

UP NEXT Houston travels to Tulsa for a series against Tulsa this weekend with Saturday's 2 p.m. game televised on FOX Sports Network for the second week in a row.
