HONOLULU - The University of Hawaii baseball team lost its fifth straight game Thursday night, falling to UC Davis 5-3 at Les Murakami Stadium.

UC Davis starter Dayne Quist (4-0) struck out nine in seven innings of work.
Designated hitter Trevor Podratz hit a two-run homer to right-center field in the fourth inning to help UH close to within 4-2, but the Aggies (11-10) were able to hold off the Rainbows.
The teams play the second game of their four-game series today.
