Bows Bounce Back vs Dons

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Kyle Dowdy won his first decision and Brent Harrison earned his fourth save, as the University of Hawai'i baseball team dropped San Francisco, 3-1, on Saturday night at Les Murakami Stadium. UH improves to 13-7 while the Dons drop to 10-10.

The Rainbows didn't need any luck of the Irish for their Saint Patrick's Day win.  The three-headed monster of Scott Squier, Dowdy, and Harrison combined to allow just one run on four hits. Squier pitched a solid four innings in surrendering USF's only run, then Dowdy (1-0) came on in the fifth to pitch a scoreless 3.1 innings. Harrison got Dowdy and the 'Bows out of an eighth-inning jam, then tossed a perfect ninth to close the door on the Dons.

USF starter Abe Bobb (3-2) was tagged with the loss in 6.2 innings of work. He allowed two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts.

Stephen Ventimilia batted 3-4 to lead Hawai'i and also scored an insurance run in the eighth inning. Trevor Podratz batted 2-3, and Breland Almadova and Collin Bennett both had one hit and one RBI.

USF scored its lone run in the third inning when Bradley Zimmer tagged up from third on a sacrifice fly by Jason Mahood (1 H, 1 RBI). UH responded right away, tying the game in the bottom of the inning on an RBI base hit by Almadova. Cody Clark (1 H, 1 R), who had singled to reach base, scored from second on the play.

The game remained tied until the 'Bows finally broke the stalemate with a run in the seventh inning. Max Duval (1 H, 1 RBI) delivered an RBI single through the left side of the infield, driving home Matt Harrison who was pinch running for Podratz. Podratz had doubled to kickstart the inning for UH.

Dowdy and Harrison took care of the USF lineup from that point on to give UH the win.

There were 3,924 tickets issued for tonight's contest, with 2,669 coming through the turnstile.

Hawai'i and San Francisco will conclude their series Sunday. First pitch of the series finale is set for 1:05 p.m.
