MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The University of Houston softball team swept Memphis by taking Sunday's contest 7-4 at Tiger Softball Complex. Houston (35-16, 17-4) never trailed the Tigers (22-35, 8-16) all weekend to win their fifth Conference USA series of the year and the fourth sweep.

Houston totaled 14 hits in the game, their second highest tally of the year. Holly Anderson and Kayla Holland both went 3-for-4 to lead the offensive charge with Anderson going 6-for-10 over the weekend and had a home run in each game.

The Cougars quickly gained the upper hand with a 3-0 lead coming in the first inning. Two runs came home off Haley Outon's 15th home run of the year. The junior scored Holly Anderson, who reached on a throwing error, and the Memphis miscue allowed Kendra Cullum to score after the junior stole second to get into scoring position. Outon went 2-for-4 in the game with two RBI and a run scored.

Summer Groholski (6-4) picked up the win for UH without allowing an earned run. However the Cougars' five errors, tying a season high, helped score four runs for Memphis. Groholski was relieved in the fifth inning by Diedre Outon who picked up her first save of the season, and second of her career. Outon tossed three strikeouts in 2.2 innings of work and didn't allow a run.

Memphis benefitted from four Houston errors between the second and third innings to cut the lead down to 5-3.

Anderson added onto the score making it 6-3 by a solo homer to left field in the top of the fifth inning. It was the third straight game with a home run for Anderson and the fourth straight game against Memphis that Anderson had a home run dating back to last season.

Houston built onto their advantage by adding another run to the scoreboard in the sixth inning. Julia Pecina led off the sixth inning with a stand up double off the wall before advancing to third on Katie St. Pierre's single on the next pitch. Anderson added her second RBI of the game with a single for the final 7-4 margin.

UP NEXT
Houston closes out conference action at home this upcoming weekend by hosting UAB. The series will determine who wins the Conference USA regular season title with the Blazers (32-13, 18-2) two games ahead of the Cougars in the league standings.
