The Hawaii Hilo softball team made quick work of Hawaii Pacific, sweeping a doubleheader with two mercy-rule victories Thursday in Hilo, 11-3 and 10-2.
In the first game, Hilo (15-8, 15-8 PacWest) exploded for four runs in the fourth inning and seven runs in the fifth, forcing the mercy rule into effect. In the second game, the Vulcans scored nine runs in the first four innings off the Sharks (8-15, 8-15 PacWest) before sealing another win with a run in the sixth.
Vevesi Liilii led the Vulcans, going 5-for-8 with five RBIs.
