FRESNO, CALIFORNIA (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warrior baseball team nearly pulled off the series sweep over Fresno State, but fell short Sunday in a ninth inning comeback bid, losing 3-1.
Hawaii (25-20) couldn't overcome a two run deficit to Fresno State (28-23) and were shutout despite a solid pitching performance from Kash Koltermann who came in relief for Cade Smith after Smith was pulled in the third inning.
Bulldog starter Nikoh Mitchell pitched a seven-inning shutout, limiting the 'Bows to just two hits.
In the ninth inning, Hawaii looked poised for their third rally in three games but the go-ahead run was left at first as the 'Bows couldn't bring any runners home when it mattered most.
With the non-conference slate wrapped up, the Warriors will return to Big West play and next week's Senior Weekend matchup against Long Beach State at Les Murakami Stadium.
