    Hawaii shortstop Kole Kaler gets UH Hilo catcher Jacob Igawa at second base during the third inning.

The Hawaii baseball team cobbled effective pitching, timely hitting and flawless defense for a 6-4 victory over Hawaii Hilo today at Les Murakami Stadium.

A matinee crowd of 994 saw the Rainbow Warriors complete a sweep of the season-opening, two-game series. The Vulcans, who compete in Division II, fell to 2-2.

Kole Kaler had three of the ’Bows’ 10 hits. Adam Fogel drove in two runs on sacrifice flies, and Dustin Demeter also drove in two, with a sacrifice fly and a triple in UH’s three-run seventh. The ’Bows did not commit an error during the series.

Cade Smith, who pitched four innings of relief, earned the victory — and a possible spot in the starting rotation. Head coach Mike Trapasso said Smith is deserving of a start during next weekend’s four-game series against North Dakota State.
