Hawaii baseball ends skid

Alex Fitchett’s two-run single came in a five-run fourth inning for Hawaii, which snapped a five-game losing streak with a 6-3 victory over Long Beach State tonight at Les Murakami Stadium.

Marcus Doi had three hits for Hawaii (19-23, 8-8 Big West), which had lost eight of nine since taking over first place in the conference.

Johnny Weeks matched his season output with two doubles and Hawaii handed reigning Big West freshman of the year Chris Mathewson his worst start of his career.

Mathewson gave up career highs of nine hits and six runs for Long Beach State (26-18, 9-7), which came in ranked No. 24 by Collegiate Baseball.

Kyle Von Ruden improved to 6-1, allowing three runs on six hits in six innings. Lawrence Chew worked three shutout innings of relief and retired all nine batters he faced to earn his first save since 2013.

The series continues Saturday night at 6:35.
