UH softball: Wahine remain unbeaten with win over Radford

The University of Hawaii softball team extended its season-opening win streak to 13 with an 11-3 win over Radford tonight at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium.

The 22nd-ranked Rainbow Wahine fell behind 3-1, but rallied to tie the game in the fifth inning and ended it in the sixth with an eight-run outburst.

UH senior Stephanie Ricketts gave up two home runs to Radford’s Nicholle Beall, but struck out seven and earned the win to improve to 8-0. The victory was also the 82nd of her career, tying her with Kelly Gentle for the program’s career record.

Junior shortstop Jessica Iwata went 2-for-3 and drove in five runs, the last four coming on a grand slam in the sixth inning that brought the eight-run mercy rule into effect.

The Wahine (13-0) continue play in the Bank of Hawaii Invitational on Saturday with games against UC Santa Barbara at 3 p.m. and No. 20 Florida State at 5.
