HONOLULU – A late rally by Oregon doomed the University of Hawaii baseball team in a 4-3 loss on Saturday night at Les Murakami Stadium.
The Rainbow Warriors (8-7) held a 3-1 lead until Oregon (9-4) posted three runs in the top of the eighth on a bases-clearing double by Jakob Goldfarb.
The 'Bows received a standout pitching performance from sophomore starter Jeremy Wu-Yelland, who went 7.0 inning allowing one unearned run on four hits with six strikeouts in the no decision.
UH's offense got off to a fast start with two runs in the bottom of the first. Alex Baeza and Logan Pouelsen drove in runs with RBI singles in the inning.
Wu-Yelland kept the Ducks off the scoreboard until the fifth when an RBI groundout brought home a run.
The bottom of the sixth saw the Rainbow Warriors add to their lead on a Daylen Calicdan sacrifice fly to make it 3-1 in favor of the home side.
The lead lasted until the top of the eighth when the Ducks posted three runs. Two singles and a walk loaded the bases for Oregon before Goldfarb's double down the left field line scored all three.
Oregon's Keaton Chase picked up the win out of the bullpen with 2.0 scoreless innings.
Game four of the Oregon series is Sunday, March 10 at 1:05 p.m. at Les Murakami Stadium.
