HONOLULU – (UH Media Relations) In the Western Athletic Conference opener both teams, the University of Hawai'i baseball team dropped Fresno State, 8-2, on Thursday night at Les Murakami Stadium. The Rainbows (18-12, 1-0) used a five-run seventh inning to put away the Bulldogs (14-15, 0-1).

The Rainbow offense went into overdrive for their five-run explosion. The inning was kick started by some traditional small ball, as Kaeo Aliviado (1 H, 1 R) and Pi'ikea Kitamura (1 H, 2 R) bunted their way on to load the bases. Trevor Podratz (3-4, 2 R, 1 RBI) delivered an RBI-base hit with the bases loaded, which was followed by a two-RBI single by Breland Almadova, and a bases-clearing double by Zack Swasey.
