Arakawa Goes the Distance

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Jarrett Arakawa was lights out on Friday night, hurling his first career complete game to guide the University of Hawai'i baseball team to a 5-1 win over Central Michigan at Les Murakami Stadium. The Rainbows improved to 10-5 while CMU dropped to 5-8.

Arakawa (2-0) struck out a season-high eight Chippewa hitters in what turned out to be a pleasant evening despite reports of inclement weather. Zach Cooper (0-2) was tagged with the loss for CMU, allowing four earned runs in five innings of work.

The 'Bows plated three early runs to give Arakawa more than enough cushion. UH batted the order in the second inning and scored three runs to take a 3-0 lead. Stephen Ventimilia (2-2, 1 R, 1 RBI) and Garrett Champion (1 H, 1 RBI) both collected RBI base hits, and Pi'ikea Kitamura scored from third on an errant throw home. Ventimilia was a fixture of composure at the plate and in the infield. He recorded base hits in his first two at bats then took his base on balls in his next three trips.  

Zack Swasey batted 3-4 with two runs to lead Hawai'i, and scored UH's final run off an RBI base hit by Conner George (1 H, 1 RBI) in the fifth inning.

Tom Lally's lead-off triple in the eighth inning led to the only CMU run of the game. Lally batted 2-3 with one run to lead the Chippewas at the plate.

There were 2,666 tickets issued for the game, and a turnstile count of 1,127.

Hawai'i and Central Michigan will play a doubleheader on Saturday, Mar. 10, to close the series. First pitch is set for 11:00 a.m.
