MANOA (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The University of Hawaii baseball team is suddenly keeping scoreboard operators very busy.

Hawaii has scored an average of eight runs per game in each of its last nine games.  The pitching, however, is not yet as steady as the coaches would like.

"Pitching wise we need to get a little more consistent.  And yet we're leading the WAC in pitching with the schedule that we've been playing, so that's a positive in that we really do feel like we still haven't hit stride from a pitching stand-point yet.

Defensively probably has been the most consistent phase of our game.  We are 7th in the country in fielding percentage," said Hawaii coach Mike Trapasso.

The Rainbows open a three game series against Gonzaga Friday night at Les Murakami Stadium.
