UH wins first C-USA series over Bulls, 2-1

Cougar Sports Services

The UH softball team pulled out its first Conference USA series win this weekend, 2-1, against the South Florida Bulls at Baseball USA. The three-game series was tied after Saturday's double-header, but the Cougars held the Bulls off the scoreboard for six innings Sunday to win, 4-1.

Freshman pitcher Jamie Falco (8-10) threw a full seven innings Sunday with no earned runs and four hits for her second win of the weekend. South Florida didn't mark the scoreboard until the top of the seventh with one run. The late offensive prevented the shutout but couldn't save the Bulls from losing the game and the series.

The Bulls put up one in the third, but UH answered with three more runs in the bottom frame. South Florida scored one more in the fifth, but UH held on to win, 5-2.
