Rainbows Lose Heartbreaker to San Jose State 10-9
SAN JOSE, Calif. – The University of Hawai‘i Rainbow baseball team (31-23, 13-15 WAC) fell to the San Jose State Spartans (22-31-1, 10-19) 10-9 in front of a crowd of 645 at Blethen Field Saturday. Darrell Fisherbaugh (0-4) took the loss while Spartan Brad Kilby (3-1) got the win.
Matthew Inouye led the way for UH, going 3-for-5 with a home run, a double and three RBI. Brian Finegan added a 2-for-4 game with two doubles, two runs and one RBI while Andrew Sansaver was also 2-for-4 with two runs and a home run.
The game started out with a surprise at Saturday starter Stephen Bryant was a late scratch due to an injury to his back. He was replaced by Guy McDowell who gave up just two runs in the first five innings before allowing two, two-run homers in the sixth.
Sansaver started it up for the ‘Bows in the top of the second, blasting his fourth homer, a solo shot, over the left field fence, making it 1-0 in favor of Hawai`i. San Jose State was then able to tie it up in the third as a called balk gave the Spartans their first run.
The Rainbows turned on the offense in the top of the fifth. Nathan Thurber started off the scoring with an RBI-single to left, followed by another RBI-single by Green and a run-scoring double by Finegan. Then the big shot came a couple batters later as Inouye smashed a three-run shot over the left field fence, making it 7-1.
The ‘Bows will close out the season today at Blethen Field as Clary Carlsen pitches against SJSU’s Jose Amaya at 1 p.m.
