HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The undefeated start for the Rainbow Warrior baseball team is over after the 'Bows fell to the BYU Cougars in extra innings Friday night, 4-3, at Les Murakami Stadium.

The Cougars (4-2) pulled ahead of Hawaii (4-1) in the 10th inning for the win after the game was tied at 3-3 for the better part of six innings. After center fielder Mitch McIntyre singled up the middle off UH reliever Colin Ashworth, Brennon Anderson reached base on a fielding error.

Right fielder Brock Hale hit a sac-fly to right field, giving the Cougars their  first lead since the third inning as they walked away with the win.

Hawaii racked up six hits on the night while Ashworth, in relief for Dominic DeMiero, got the loss after allowing one run on three hits to go along with three strikeouts.

DeMiero pitched six innings, conceding three runs on six hits.

With the series split 1-1, the Rainbow Warriors and Cougars return to action on Saturday afternoon for a doubleheader. The teams will play two full nine-inning games with first pitch slated for 12:05 p.m. at Les Murakami Stadium.
