UC Davis hammers Hawaii to win baseball series

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:18 a.m. HST, May 19, 2014

Hawaii gave up a season-high 21 hits as UC Davis hammered the Rainbow Warriors 12-3 on Sunday to take the series at Dobbins Stadium in Davis, Calif.

Junior Jarrett Arakawa left after giving up one run on three hits in the first inning for Hawaii (20-30, 4-17 Big West), which has lost at least 30 games for the second year in a row and the fourth time in Mike Trapasso's 13 years as head coach.

Spencer Brann went 3-for-4 with a home run and scored three times and Tanner Bily had four hits and two runs scored for the Aggies (23-28, 7-14).

All seven pitchers UH used in the game gave up at least two hits. UC Davis put the game away with a seven-run fifth inning.

Evan Wolf gave up three runs on nine hits with no walks and four strikeouts to earn the win for UC Davis.

Marc Flores went 3-for-4 with a double, run and an RBI and Trevor Podratz was 2-for-3 with an RBI for UH.

Quintin Torres-Costa (3-3) allowed three runs on four hits in three innings of relief to take the loss.

Hawaii returns home for the final three games of the season against UC Riverside beginning Thursday night.

Find him another position elsewhere in the state. Typical state employee mentality overwhelms UH Sports. It is just a retirement plum, there should be an exemption of the high three for UH athletic positions. If he has enough years at $350,000 he retires happy...

Can't blame it all on the coach. Heard on the espn radio this morning that UH baseball facilities is mediocre when compared to the rest of the Big West. Whereas Murakami stadium, albeit getting old, is still in relatively good condition, it's the rest of the baseball facilities that are poor. These include locker rooms, showers, weight training rooms, meeting rooms, etc. 30 years old and UH Manoa has a very bad habit of NOT maintaining their buildings and facilities.

So the baseball team doesn't have talent because we dont have the facilities to attract better talented players to come to Hawaii and play. Then Trap should recruit local players because they want to come here, regardless of the facilities. There's two in the SEC, one at Oklahoma St.......one senior is going away to Arizona?
