Basebows crush NYIT, 17-0

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Los Angeles Clippers and the Rainbow Warrior baseball team.

Two groups that couldn't wait for April to come to an end.

The latter finished the month 1-12, but now May is starting off right.

It was the first night for the new scoreboard out in centerfield and Hawaii wasted no time lighting it up as the 'Bows shellacked the New York Institute of Technology, 17-0, Friday night at the Les Murakami Stadium.

Matt Cooper deservedly got the win after fanning 11 batters through five innings.

Hawaii scored multiple runs in three innings to improve to 15-25 on the year.

UH is back in action with a doubleheader Saturday afternoon. First game starts at 3:35 p.m..
