Dallas Duarte’s infield single in the eighth inning delivered Hawaii a 5-4 baseball victory over Longwood tonight at Les Murakami Stadium.

Down 4-3 in the eighth, the Rainbow Warriors tied it when Jack Kennelly singled home pinch runner Daylen Calicdan from third. Kennelly was 1-for-10 this season before the hit.

Kennelly went to second on Scotty Scott’s walk, and both runners advanced when Longwood first baseman Jacob Mitchell was called for obstruction on a pick-off play. Duarte followed with a chopper to third. Duarte beat DeAndre Pitts’ throw to first as Kennelly scored the go-ahead run.

UH coach Mike Trapasso was ejected in the bottom of the fifth when he vehemently protested an interference call against Ethan Lopez. UH’s Adam Fogel appeared to have stolen second, but umpire Kevin Daugherty ruled that Lopez’s backswing interfered with catcher Carlos Garrido’s ability to throw to second. Lopez was ruled out to end the inning.

Li‘i Pontes pitched three innings of scoreless relief to earn the victory.
