No. 17 UCLA hands Hawaii fifth straight loss

By Star-Advertiser staff


Scott Squier gave up two hits over seven innings but the Hawaii bats fell silent again in a 5-1 loss to No. 17 UCLA on Tuesday in a nonconference game at Jackie Robinson Stadium in Los Angeles.

Hawaii (7-22) extended its losing streak to five and has scored only three runs in four games on its current road trip.

Squier (0-5), who did not pitch in the UC Irvine series last weekend, allowed three runs — two earned — with three walks and seven innings.

Brenton Allen hit an RBI triple and an error in the third inning allowed two more UCLA ruins to score for a 3-0 lead.

Squier allowed only one hit through six innings and retired 11 in a row after Stephen Ventimilia botched a double-play grounder, allowing the second UCLA run to score.

Trevor Podratz had two of Hawaii's five hits and Marc Flores snapped an 0-for-13 skid with a two-out RBI single in the sixth to score Pi'ikea Kitamura.

Cody Poteet (2-3) walked two and struck out two in five innings to earn the win for the Bruins (20-9).

Senior Jon Flinn gave up two runs on two hits and a walk in the eighth.

UCLA finished with just four hits.

Hawaii, which is 1-8 away from home this year, will finish its road trip with a three-game series at Cal Poly starting Friday.
