Houston continues their balanced approach to their success this year yielding results while on the base paths and when their opponents reach base as well. Houston has stolen a program record 93 bases this season, and set the single-game high against Nevada with seven steals.
Houston ranks No. 13 (1.82) in steals per game and will see that total go up as they accumulated nine against their Bayou City opponents HBU and Texas Southern.
When the other team is on base, Houston is turning the 15th most double plays per game.
Haley Outon has hit a team-leading 16 home runs this year and that total ranks third in program history, tying Melissa Gregson's sum from last year. Laurie Wagener (19) and Kristen Glowacz (17) hold the top two positions in the UH record books. The 16 home runs is the most hit by a catcher in the history of the program.
