No. 7 Oregon squeezes past Hawaii

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:34 a.m. HST, Feb 15, 2014

Nick Catalano scored on a wild pitch in the top of the ninth inning to give No. 7 Oregon a 3-2 victory over Hawaii in the 2014 season opener for both teams on Friday night at Les Murakami Stadium.

The Ducks ran their winning streak to eight against the Rainbow Warriors, who allowed only three hits.

Reliever Eric Gleese took the loss despite throwing 3 2/3 quality innings in relief of starter Matt Cooper.

Gleese allowed one hit before walking two batters with two outs in the eighth. Junior Jordan DePonte replaced Gleese and struck out Scott Heineman on a pitch that got away from catcher Trevor Podratz.

Catalano scored all the way from second as Podratz struggled to get the ball back in to DePonte, who was covering home plate.

UH first baseman Marcus Doi reached base four times in his collegiate debut, including a leadoff single in his first at-bat.

Doi drew an eight-pitch walk with the bases loaded in the fifth and Kaeo Aliviado beat out a double-play ball to drive in LJ Brewster to tie the game at 2-2.

Aliviado finished with two of UH's five hits.

UH pitched well enough to win; good job guys. They did not play defense well enough or provide enough offense.
