Grahamm Wiest tossed eight scoreless innings of two-hit ball and Michael Lorenzen earned his 13th save as No. 4 Fullerton defeated Hawaii 3-0 on Sunday to win the series at Les Murakami Stadium.

Wiest walked one and struck out five to improve to 7-2 as the Titans shut out an opponent for the ninth time this year.

Matt Chapman doubled and scored twice and Lorenzen went 3-for-4 with a run at the plate for Fullerton (36-7, 12-3 Big West), which leads the conference by one game over Cal State Northridge, which swept Pacific.

Kalei Hanawahine and Marc Flores each singled for the Rainbows (9-29, 4-11), who are a game up on Pacific and UC Davis, which are tied for last in the league.

Corey MacDonald (4-5) took the loss after throwing a solid eight innings. He allowed three runs on seven hits with two walks and a strikeout.

Hawaii will play 10 of its final 13 games on the road, beginning with a three-game series at Pacific beginning Friday.

Trapasso is an idiot and has no business coaching in a D1 program. Keep running the same lineup out there game after game and you'll get the same results. 2 hits and another loss today. I don't think he's smart enough to realize his 3 hole and 5 hole hitters are hitting under .180 in league play. He hasn't even bothered to give other guys a shot to try and win some games. It's embarrassing and he needs to go.

Theres got to be something behind that whole thing, not moving those two hitters somewhere around 6 or 7th hole or sitting them for a couple of games to see what the other players sitting on the bench can do. Its not as if they can do any worse. But Trapasso has his favorites and his favorites aren`t pulling there weight.

Pitching a gem against Hawaii's baseball team only requires the ability to throw the ball 60 feet 6 inches. Offensive production from this baseball team was placed on the endangered species list by National Geographic after the first two series of the 2013 season.
