Houston dropped both of its games on the second day of the Houston Classic, falling to the No. 21 Oregon Ducks 9-4 and 8-0 to the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday.

The Ducks started out strong as they jumped to a four-point lead by the third while the Cougars could not generate any offense until the bottom of the inning when senior infielder Sarah Queen launched a three-run home run to bring UH within a run.

With a double from sophomore outfielder Aspen Howie, the game was tied at four.

The Ducks responded with bringing home a run and then launching three solo home runs, which gave them a four-point lead after five innings.

Oregon added another solo home run in the sixth to bring the score to 9-4.

The Cougars could not rally again in the final innings.

Houston fell to Oregon 9-4 in the first game.

During the second contest of the day, Oregon State wasted no time taking control as they led 5-0 by the end of the first inning.

The Beavers only piled on the runs from there, including a two-run home run.

Sophomore catcher Rylee Maston led the Beavers with three RBI’s.

The Cougars failed to record a hit in the loss and got on base only once through a walk in the shut-out loss to the Beavers.

Houston will face Oregon State again on the final day of the Houston Classic on Sunday.
