Baldwin drives in three in Hawaii’s 6-2 win over New Mexico State


Eric Ramirez doubled and scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the bottom of the seventh inning and Hawaii held New Mexico State to four hits in a 6-2 victory on Friday night at Les Murakami Stadium.

Quintin Torres-Costa (1-3) gave up the tying run on a balk and walked the first two hitters he faced in relief to load the bases with one out in the seventh.

He struck out Quinnton Mack and Joseph Koerper back-to-back to end the inning and was perfect over the final two frames. He finished with five strikeouts.

Hawaii (8-14) evened the series against New Mexico State (3-16-1) with Game 3 scheduled for Saturday night at 6:35.

Alan Baldwin gave Hawaii a 2-1 lead in the third inning with a two-out, two-run single and drove in Matt LoCoco with a single in the eighth to finish with a career-high three RBIs.

Kaeo Aliviado added an RBI double and scored on Ramirez’s sacrifice fly as Hawaii scored three times in the eighth to give Torres-Costa some much-needed breathing room.

Tyler Brashears allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits with three walks and six strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings. He threw 121 pitches and lowered his ERA to 2.39.

Riley Barr (0-3) allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings with one walk and three strikeouts to take the loss for the Aggies.
