’Bows erupt for 11 runs in win at Minnesota

In its biggest output of the season, the University of Hawaii baseball team powered its way to an 11-2 road victory over Minnesota today at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The game was played on the Minnesota Vikings’ home football field, where there were no dugouts or warning track. But the short-handed Rainbow Warriors had little trouble in producing a season-high 11 runs and 14 hits against six Gophers pitchers.

Freshman shortstop Dustin Demeter drove in four runs, including two on the ’Bows’ first home runs of the season. The ’Bows also induced four bases-loaded walks in a six-run ninth.

Dominic DeMiero (2-0) spaced seven hits in eight innings, allowing two runs and striking out six. He did not issue a walk.

UH faces Iowa in Friday’s first round of the Dairy Queen Classic.
