UH baseball holds on to beat San Jose State

  • JAMM AQUINO / JAQUINO@STARADVERTISER.COM

    Hawaii infielder Jonathan Weeks got San Jose State infielder Aaron Pleschner out at second base during the second inning.

The University of Hawaii relied on big innings to conquer San Jose State’s small-ball tactics for an 8-7 baseball victory at Les Murakami Stadium tonight.

A crowd of 1,680 saw the Rainbow Warriors cobble together three runs in the first and four in the fourth to overcome deficits, and then throw out the potential tying run at the plate for the final out.

The ’Bows won the first two of this four-game, inter-conference series. The teams meet tonight at 6:35.

All but one UH batter had at least one hit, led by left fielder Adam Fogel’s 3-for-3 performance. Fogel is 7-for-8 in this series. Johnny Weeks, Kekai Rios, Ethan Lopez and Dustin Demeter each had two hits. The ’Bows amassed 14 hits and were struck four times with pitches.

The ’Bows led 8-7 when Corey Olivet reached on a two-out single. David Campbell then hit a drive to left field. Fogel picked up the ball, then threw to first baseman Eric Ramirez. Ramirez threw to Rios, who tagged out Olivet attempting to score from first.

Colin Ashworth, who replaced Neil Uskali with one out in the fourth, pitched 3 1/3 innings for his first UH victory. Ashworth allowed two hits and two runs but only one earned.
