The University of Hawaii baseball team defeated Albany for a third straight day on Saturday at Les Murakami Stadium in Honolulu, rallying from a six-run deficit to win 9-7.

The Rainbow Warriors (3-4) trailed 6-0 entering the bottom of the first inning - the Great Danes' rally was helped by two interference calls against catcher Trevor Podratz.

Hawaii scored once in the bottom of the first and added another run in the second, then put up three in the fourth. The Rainbow Warriors went in front with three-run rally in the sixth, taking advantage of Ryan Stinar's five wild pitches in the inning.

Scott Squier (1-0) earned the win despite allowing seven runs - three earned - in seven innings. Gordon Cardenas pitched two hitless innings for his first save of the season.

Hawaii's Kalei Hanawahine had two doubles, scored three times and drove in a run.

Albany fell to 0-3. Stinar (0-1) took the loss.

On Friday, Jarrett Arakawa and Josh Elms combined on a five-hit shutout as UH won 9-0.

Arakawa (1-0) allowed four hits in six innings, and Elms worked the final three innings for his first save. Marcus Doi was 3-for-4 with a triple and three runs.

Albany starter Cameron Sorgie (0-1) allowed six runs - four earned - while getting just five outs.

The teams are scheduled to finish their four-game series today.
