HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

For the Rainbow Warrior baseball team, the emotional high of handing #18 Cal State Fullerton its first home conference loss of 2016 has been negated by a subpar mark for the fourth consecutive season. 

The Titans defeated Hawaii 8-3 on Saturday to ensure the 'Bows would finish at or below .500 in conference play, as they have every season since going 10-8 in 2012. UH had needed to sweep the Titans during the current road trip to end that particular streak.

Instead, the Rainbow Warriors were felled by the bats of CSUF's Timmy Richards (2-4, 4RBI, HR) and Ruben Cardenas (1-3, 2RBI, HR), who hit a pair of home runs in the third inning to help spur the Titans to a 5-2 lead.

Two more Fullerton runs in the sixth, after Hawaii had added one in the fourth, put the game out of reach for good.

Hawaii's untimely offensive lapses struck again on Saturday. UH hit 1-10 on the day with two outs, 1-10 with runners on, and 0-4 with runners in scoring position.

The two teams will meet again on Sunday to decide the season series.
