UH softball team completes sweep of Cal Poly

LAST UPDATED: 01:56 p.m. HST, Apr 20, 2013

University of Hawaii pitcher Kaia Parnaby earned her third complete-game win of the weekend and the Rainbow Wahine softball team completed a sweep of Cal Poly with a 2-1 win today in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

UH shortstop Jessica Iwata went 3-for-3 and drove in both runs for the No. 15/20 Rainbow Wahine, who improved to 37-8 overall and 14-1 in Big West play while finishing up an 11-day road trip.

One day after breaking UH's single-season wins record, Parnaby allowed four hits, struck out three and walked one and raised her record to 34-3.

Iwata gave UH the lead in the top the first inning with a single that scored Kayla Wartner from third.

Cal Poly answered in the bottom of the inning on Mariah Cochiolo's run-scoring double.

Iwata struck again in the third inning with an RBI single that scored Kelly Majam from second.

Cal Poly put the tying run on base in each of the last three innings, but Parnaby held off the Mustangs each time to protect the lead and finished off her 30th complete game of the season.

UH went 6-1 on the road trip and has won 17 of its last 18. The Wahine open a two-week homestand with a series against Long Beach State starting Friday.

Nice job by Iwata today. Good to see her step up when the team needed it. Long Beach will come in next weekend at least tied for second place in the conference after this weekend's games. Should be a good series and fun to watch.

Great wins on the road for the team but they still have to find a relief pitcher or a second pitcher to complement Parnaby as her arm will fall off by the time the regionals come around...don't forget last year when both Ricketts and Parnaby were out of it in the WAC playoffs and regionals...

I like Kaia's Iron Woman mentality but agree that a second arm would serve the team's goals not only for the rest of this year, but looking forward to next season, too. I sure like the team's spirit in giving her run support top to bottom in the offense. Fun way to win games and keep other teams on their toes with no obvious 'outs' coming up next in the lineup of the Wahine. Hope Coolen keeps it up as this is a fun team to watch and support when you never can tell who'll get the RBI's or HRs. Go Wahine! Looking good!

Great win this week-end, however they scored 9 runs in three games,they need to score more with Long Beach,and Pacifc coming in.Coolen is running Parnaby into the ground.Thought he would let one of the Freshmen pitch at least one game this week end. Its nice that she gets all this wins,however its not going to help towards the end if she ends up with sore arm.
