HOUSTON - Houston Softball hosts No. 13/18 Texas A&M at Cougar Softball Stadium this Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m. Houston enters the midweek contest sporting a 9-2 record after posting a 4-1 mark as the host of the Hilton Houston Plaza Invite last weekend. The Cougars have played all 11 games at home and head on the road for the first time in 2014 following the A&M contest.

PROMOTIONS
Houston fans are encouraged to wear RED for the RED OUT at Cougar Softball Stadium.

ON HOUSTON
Houston (9-2) is leading the American in team batting average (.371) by 65 points and ranks second in team ERA at 2.30, just 0.01 behind the leader UCF. Houston has outscored their opponents 94-31 this year while also posting conference-best slugging (.616) and on base percentages (.457).

Haley Outon, the American Player of the Week, is a large part of the success from the plate as she has batted .414 with five home runs and 18 RB for the team lead in both categories. The senior set the program career home run record against Nicholls State on Sunday belting her 48th career homer.

Outon, the clean up batter, has the third highest batting average on the team as the first four in the lineup (Katie St. Pierre, Selena Hernandez, Kayla Holland and Haley Outon) have combined to bat .434. Shortstop Selena Hernandez has the highest batting average on the team and in the league at .488. She carries an 11-game hitting streak into the week and right behind her streak is leadoff batter Katie St. Pierre's 10-game hitting streak.

Hernandez, Outon and St. Pierre are all tied for the league lead in runs scored at 14 with Holland trailing in fourth place at 13.

Senior Diedre Outon is 4-1 on the season with a 0.44 ERA covering 31.2 innings to lead the UH pitching staff.

ON TEXAS A&M
No. 13/18 Texas A&M (12-4) is fresh off 3-2 showing at the Mary Nutter Classic. The Aggies fell 3-2 to No. 11 Nebraska and 4-2 to No. 14 Arizona while picking up wins against San Diego State (2-1), California (10-6) and Cal State Northridge (12-0).

Nicole Morgan leads a potent A&M lineup featuring six starters batting above .326. Morgan's .479 clip leads the team along with her five home runs and 22 RBI. April Ryan ranks second batting .418 and has scored 19 times this year.

For the Aggie hurlers, Katie Marks has led the charge in the circle to the tune of a 5-0 record and a 1.53 ERA. She's thrown two shutouts over her 36.2 innings of work striking out 24 batters.

SERIES HISTORY
A&M leads the all-time series 16-5 over Houston with the two teams splitting the season series in 2012 the last time they met. Both games resulted in 3-2 decisions with Houston's victory over A&M ending the nation's longest home winning streak (34 games) at that time.

LAST TIME OUT
Houston used three-run rule victories to dispatch its opponents and post a 4-1 record at the Houston Hilton Plaza Invite last weekend. The Cougars only loss came 3-1 to North Dakota State while posting wins over Nicholls State (15-1, 12-4) and Columbia (17-0, 5-4).
