University of Hawaii wins home baseball finale

Jackson Rees allowed four hits and one unearned run in six innings to boost the Hawaii baseball team to a 4-1 victory over Long Beach State today at Les Murakami Stadium.

Rees departed Friday’s start after seven pitches after he was struck on the mouth by a return throw. Rees required five stitches to close the cut, but was fit enough to return to the mound today for his 14th start.

After the Dirtbags placed two runners in scoring position with two outs in the seven against Kyle Hatton, Rees’ replacement, Dylan Thomas was summoned. Thomas induced the third out of the seventh, then did not allow a run in the eighth or ninth for his 14th save.

In improving to 26-22 overall and 10-11 in the Big West, the Rainbow Warriors clinched their second consecutive winning regular season. The ’Bows close the season on the road with a three-game series against UC Santa Barbara.

The Dirtbags fell to 26-28 and 11-10.
