Rainbows get a win to end road trip

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:39 p.m. HST, Apr 14, 2013

Pi'ikea Kitamura had a career-high four hits and Scott Squier stranded the tying run on third in the eighth and earned his first career save as Hawaii ended its seven-game road trip with a 7-6 victory over Cal Poly on Sunday afternoon at Baggett Stadium in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

Kitamura finished 4-for-5 with two runs and two RBIs and Andre Real went 3-for-5 with a double, triple, two runs and two RBIs for the Rainbows (8-24, 3-6 Big West), who snapped a seven-game losing streak.

Corey MacDonald (4-3) has pitched Hawaii to half of its wins this season, allowing six runs on seven hits with two walks and two strikeouts in seven innings.

Hawaii led 7-5 in the eighth when MacDonald allowed a single and a double to put the tying run on second with nobody out.

Squier replaced MacDonald and allowed a sacrifice fly but got out of the inning with the Rainbows still ahead.

Hawaii scored all seven of its runs in the first four innings and outhit Cal Poly 13-7.

Granger (3-4) took the loss, allowing four runs on seven hits in 1 1/3 innings for the Mustangs (24-9, 6-3).

The Rainbows will fly home on Monday and play their next six games at Les Murakami Stadium, beginning with Cal State Northridge on Friday.

Frontman, I hope your not a fan because the Warriors don`t need people like you. All you talk about is negative even when they win or do well. Maybe this might help, half of the teams they play are RANKED TEAMS. Its there first year and they have the hardest schedule of any team in the conference. Give em a little slack. There going to do well from here on out.
