Lawrence Chew got Devyn Bolasky to ground out to the pitcher with the tying run on second base and Hawaii held on for a 5-4 win over UC Riverside today at the Riverside Sports Complex in Riverside, Calif.

Kaeo Aliviado went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored for the Rainbows (16-33, 11-14 Big West), who have won four straight for the first time this season.

Connor Little (3-6) went six innings to earn his second straight win and Chew pitched the final three innings to record his fourth save.

Hawaii led 5-0 after five innings and took a 5-3 lead into the ninth.

After retiring the first six batters he faced, Chew gave up consecutive singles to put the tying run at first base with nobody out.

After a sacrifice bunt moved the runners over, the Highlanders (12-32, 8-17) scored one run on a sacrifice fly before Bolasky's groundout ended the game.

Marc Flores went 2-for-4 with a double and drove in the first two runs with a base hit in the top of the first.

Pi'ikea Kitamura also had two hits, drove in a run and scored once for Hawaii.

Little allowed seven hits and three earned runs with two walks and a strikeout.

Game 2 of the series is Friday at 3 p.m. Hawaii time.
