HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A late inning rally by UC Santa Barbara left the baseball Bow's victims of a 10-4 loss in non-conference play Sunday.
UCSB scored two runs in the 8th inning and five runs in the 9th, dropping UH to 7-18 on the season, and improving the Gauchos to 14-12.
Starting pitcher Scott Squier lasted just four innings, his undoing came in the top of the third when he gave up a three-run home run to Brandon Trinkwon. Lawrence Chew (0-2) entered the game in relief and was tagged with the loss in one and two-thirds innings pitched.
All of Hawaii's runs came in the fifth inning, giving them a 4-3 lead. With the bases loaded, Steven Ventimilia hit a single between shortstop and third base, driving in Adam Hurley for UH's first run of the day. Tyler Young then came home on a bases loaded walk. Austin Wobrock followed after scoring on a wild pitch to tie the game. Ventimila then completed his trip around the bags, scoring on a grounder by Marc Flores that turned into a 4-6-3 double play.
The 'Bows conclude a 12-game home stand and now head out on the road for a pair Big West series. First up will be UC Irvine. The two teams play a three-game series beginning Friday, Apr. 5.
