Hawaii got back to .500 in Big West Conference play with an 8-4 win over UC Davis on Saturday night to complete a three-game sweep at Les Murakami Stadium.
Eric Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBIs and Jacob Sheldon-Collins added a two-run double in the second inning for Hawaii (12-19, 3-3), which scored its most runs in a conference series since joining the league in 2013.
Alan Baldwin went 3-for-5 with a triple and scored a run and Chayce Ka’aua doubled and scored twice for Hawaii, which scored 27 runs in the series, breaking its previous mark of 22 set last year against UC Santa Barbara.
UH had five extra-base hits in the game and 13 total with 34 in the series.
UC Davis (18-10-1, 3-3) had won seven in a row and was undefeated in conference play before losing all three games to UH. The teams will play a single game on Sunday that won’t count toward the league standings.
Jarrett Arakawa (2-0) picked up the win for UH, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits in 5 1/3 innings with two walks and three strikeouts.
Quintin Torres-Costa worked the final 3 2/3 scoreless innings allowing only one walk to pick up the save. In his last four outings, Torres-Costa has thrown 7 2/3 scoreless innings allowing two hits and four walks with 13 strikeouts.
