The Warriors lost their season opener on Friday night to the Anteaters, 5-1. The Warriors sent Nate Klein to the mound in the first game of the doubleheader.
UH kept it close with a two-run home run from Christian Johnson, the first home run for the Warriors this season, but it wasn't enough as they fell 5-4 to Irvine.
In the second game, the Warriors scored three runs in the first inning to take a quick lead, but with the game tied at 3 in the fourth inning, the Anteaters took the lead on a sacrifice fly to right. Tony Asaro tagged from third and in a play at the plate, the ump ruled he was safe.
UC-Irvine went on to win the second game by the same score, 5-4, as Hawaii loses two close, heartbreaking games on Saturday. UH is now 0-and-3 on the season.
Both teams will square off on Sunday at Les Murakami Stadium. First pitch is 1:05 pm.
