MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The University of Houston softball team posted a pair of shutout victories over the Memphis Saturday afternoon at Tigers Softball Complex. The Cougars won both games 6-0 while combining for 17 hits while limiting the Tigers to five.

Holly Anderson had two home runs in the doubleheader action to combine for five RBI. Bailey Watts (17-5) and Diedre Outon (9-5) picked up the wins for Houston as Outon tied a career high with nine strikeouts.

HOUSTON 6, MEMPHIS 0
The Cougars won game one of Saturday's doubleheader in shutout fashion with a 6-0 victory over Memphis.

Houston went ahead 3-0 in the third inning courtesy of three base hits in the frame. After Katie St. Pierre singled and Kendra Cullum reached on a walk to load the bases, Holly Anderson had a shot to straight away center caught at the top of the fence. The long fly ball allowed all three runners to advance giving Anderson the sacrifice fly RBI to make the score 1-0. Haley Outon cleared the bases the next batter with a two-out double to right center to give UH the three run lead. Outon's RBIs were the 54th and 55th on the year.

Anderson hit the ball even further her next time at the plate to make sure no outfielder could rob her of extra bases with her ninth home run of the year. Kendra Cullum took a ball to her back on the previous pitch to make it a two-run shot for Anderson.

The hit by pitch for Cullum was her 30th of the year and the 57th of her career moving into sole possession of fourth place in the NCAA career record boards.

Bailey Watts (17-5) was nearly unhittable as the junior allowed only two hits to earn the win. Watts improved to 8-1 within league play with her fourth shutout of the season.

Freshman Katie St. Pierre made the score 6-0 when she singled down the first base line in the sixth inning to score Jaime Edwards from third. Edwards went 3-for-3 in the game with three singles to lead the team in hits for the contest.

Houston played mistake free defense improving to 7-1 on the season when not committing an error in the game.

Memphis's best chances for runs came in the second inning as the Tigers loaded the bases with a single followed by a hit by pitch and walk but stranded all three runners after a pair of solid defensive plays by UH. Kendra Cullum deftly handled a bouncer at shortstop and fired the ball to home for the force out before Julia Pecina made a running catch in left field to end the threat.

HOUSTON 6, MEMPHIS 0
The Cougars erupted for six runs in the seventh inning to earn their second-straight 6-0 win over the Tigers on Saturday.

Diedre Outon (9-5) was dealing as the junior tied a career high with nine strikeouts in the game. Diedre kept the Cougars in the game as the Houston offense struggled to find form until the final frame. The junior got stronger as the game went on with eight of her strikeouts coming from the third inning on and only allowed a trio of hits.

Houston was finally able to make a dent in the scoreboard in the seventh inning with Reina Gaber leading off the inning with a hard hit single past the Memphis shortstop to start the last-inning rally. Diedre Outon drew a walk on four pitches and both runners advanced on Jaime Edwards sacrifice bunt.

Back-to-back doubles by Julia Pecina (1-for-3, 2 RBI) and Katie St. Pierre (3-for-3, 1 RBI) gave UH the 3-0 lead. The next batter, Kendra Cullum, drew a walk before the Cougars doubled the lead with one swing of the bat from Holly Anderson.

Holly Anderson launched her second home run of the day to score Pecina and Cullum to make the score 6-0. Anderson's five RBI on the day upped her season total to 43.
