The Rainbow Warriors baseball team needed five pitchers to get through the it’s contest with Cal State Fullerton on Thursday night. The ‘Bows fell in the series opener 5-2.
Hawaii starter Aaron Davenport only went two plus innings, getting yanked in the third inning mid-at bat when head coach Mike Trapasso had seen enough. True freshman Davenport allowed two runs on two hits. His biggest problem was his control, walking three batters.
Kash Koltermann came in first in relief and pitched four innings, allowing two runs on four hits.
Colin Ashworth, Jeremy Wu-Yellend, and Carter Loewen were the other pitchers used for UH.
The Warriors accumulated eight hits. No Hawaii hitter had more than one hit.
Alex Baeza drove in the ‘Bows first run in with a single that scored Ethan Lopez in the fourth inning.
UH mounted a threat in the bottom of the ninth, scoring one run on a Logan Pouelsen RBI hit that plated Dalyen Calicdan.
Hawaii and Cal State Fullerton play game two on Friday at 6:35pm at Les Murakami Stadium.
