Nolan Flashman went 2-for-3 with three runs scored and Branden Berry homered in the eighth inning for the Matadors (24-14, 3-9 Big West), who won their first series in conference play.

Marcus Doi singled home two runs and Jacob Sheldon-Collins went 2-for-4 with a double and scored a run for Hawaii (18-19, 7-5), which fell 1 1/2 games back of co-BWC leaders Cal Poly and Cal State Fullerton.

Alex Hatch (3-5) walked four batters in the second inning — including two with the bases loaded — and gave up six total in five innings to take the loss.

Hawaii coach Mike Trapasso was ejected in the fourth inning for arguing balls and strikes.
