ball and struck out eight batters as UH beat the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners
2-1 Sunday at the Cougar Softball Complex.
Freshman pitcher Crystal Briscoe gave up six runs in Sundayis 6-5 loss to Texas Tech. The Cougars rebounded by beating Texas-San Antonio 2-1 later in the day.

The Cougars started the tournament by losing their first three games but improved to 6-8 with Sundayis win. Falco evened her record to 3-3 and posted her second complete game.
UH started the scoring in the third. With two outs, junior shortstop Jeanie Davis singled in junior outfielder Lindsay Durham for the 1-0 lead. With one out in the fourth, sophomore first base player Michelle Keith hit a home run to give the Cougars a 2-0 lead.
Falco surrendered her only earned run of the day in the fifth inning. She gave up a home run to UTSAis Christy Brownlee that cut the lead to 2-1. But it was the only mistake she made. The Cougars held on for the win.
The win made up for a failed rally earlier in the day against Texas Tech. Down 6-5, the Cougars had the tying and wining runs on base in the bottom of the seventh inning. Davis reached on a pinch-hit double. Two outs later, sophomore Kristen Glowacz walked to put two runners on. But sophomore designated hitter Jenilee Skender struck out to end the game. Skender earlier drove in UHis fifth run in the fifth inning
Freshman starting pitcher Crystal Briscoe was lit up for five runs in the first three innings before finally settling down and limiting Texas Tech to just one run the rest of the way. She fell to 2-2 with the complete-game loss.
