Three Hawaii pitchers combined on a six-hitter and the Rainbow Warriors amassed 10 hits in today’s 10-2 baseball victory over North Dakota State at Les Murakami Stadium.
The ’Bows rebounded from Friday’s 3-1 loss to produce double-digit runs for the first time in 20 games.
Aaron Davenport allowed five hits and struck out eight in earning the victory. Davenport worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth when his curveball caught the edge of the plate for a called third strike.
