Miyao hit two home runs over the weekend, good for his first two home runs of the season. Overall, he went 6-for-12 with five runs and four RBI as the Rainbow Warriors swept the Gauchos.
Hawaii ended its 2023 campaign at 29-20 overall and 18-12 in Big West Conference play, finishing three games back of conference champion UC San Diego. However, because the Tritons are in Year 3 of a four-year NCAA transition period, they are ineligible to play in the NCAA Tournament. Cal State Fullerton at 20-10 won the league’s automatic bid instead of UCSD.
