UH sweeps UConn, remain undefeated in American
UH softball completed the series sweep over Connecticut by posting an 8-4 win on Sunday at Burrill Family Field. It improves to 23-10 on the season and remains a perfect 9-0 in the American Athletic Conference during the 11-game winning streak.
UH found itself behind after UConn took a 2-0 lead in the first inning coming off a two-run home run. The lead didn’t last long, as the Cougars came back in the top of the second to regain the lead with a four-run rally.
Senior Haley Outon drew a walk, advanced to second on a fielder’s choice and then joined forces with Kayla Holland to execute a double-steal, moving both runners into scoring position. Junior Jaime Edwards then hit an RBI single, and freshman Jordan Rain hit her first career home run.
UH took care of UConn in the first two games on Friday with 12-2 and 16-2 wins.
