Nevada routs Rainbow Warriors

  • JAMM AQUINO / JAQUINO@STARADVERTISER.COM.

    Hawaii’s Josh Rojas stole second base, beating the throw to Nevada infielder Justin Bridgman during the eighth inning.

On April Fool’s night, the University of Hawaii baseball team could not produce a comeback trick.

After the Rainbow Warriors tied it at 2 in the seventh, Nevada responded with three runs in the eighth and four more in the ninth en route to a 9-2 rout tonight at Les Murakami Stadium.

Designated hitter Mike Echavia, who redshirted with UH in 2014 before transferring, had the key eighth-inning double that brought home two runs. Echavia was 4-for-5 with three RBIs.

The outcome ended the ’Bows’ seven-game winning streak and dropped their record to 17-9.

Matt Richardson, who relieved Jackson Rees at the start of the eighth, suffered the loss.

The teams meet Sunday at 1 p.m. in the finale of this four-game series.
