Senior’s complete game lifts Hawaii


Tribune-Herald

Connor Little decided to hang around to soak in and enjoy his last start at Les Murakami Stadium.

Little threw his first career nine-inning complete game Friday as the University of Hawaii started its final home series of the season with a 5-2 victory against Cal Davis in Honolulu.

Little (2-6), one of eight UH seniors, scattered nine hits while striking out five.

Kaeo Aliviado doubled in each of the first two innings, scoring once and driving in a run as the Rainbow Warriors (13-33, 8-14 Big West) took a 3-0 lead.

Austin Wobrock collected a career-high three hits and Connor George finished with three RBIs, including a two-run single in the seventh that put Hawaii ahead 5-1.

Little and Piikea Kitamura are the only two Hawaii players leftover from the 2010 team that won the Western Athletic Conference and reached the regional finals. Kitamura drove home Aliviado with a single in the first and scored two runs.

Aggies starter Harry Stanwyck (4-7) pitched seven innings, allowing nine hits, five runs (four earned), with three walks and four strikeouts.

Tino Lipson had two hits and scored two runs for the Cal Davis (19-32, 5-17). In the third, he scored from second on a wild pitch. Little uncorked two wild pitches but he didn’t walk a batter in his 109-pitch performance.
