Kailua-Kona, Hawaii – It took more than a rain-halted game and a
two-hour drive to slow down the visiting Florida State University
baseball team as the University of Hawaii at Hilo dropped two games to
the second-ranked Seminoles, 16-2 and 5-1.
The series ends with a 2 p.m. game a Francis Wong Stadium on Monday,
January 28. It will also be Senior Citizen Day as anyone over 55 will be
admitted at no charge.
Saturday’s game was halted with the Seminoles leading 6-0 with two men
on in the second at Wong Stadium. They picked up the game at Simmons
Field where they left off and used three singles, a fielder’s choice and
a walk to post three more runs. They posted three runs in the third and
sixth, and one in the fourth.
The Vulcans (0-9-1) posted a run in the third. Darren Chu doubled to
right center with two outs then scored on Kaliko Oligo’s single. The
second run was scored on Jeremy Loque’s seventh-inning single.
Ryan Barthelemy led the Seminoles 13-hit attack with four hits and five
RBI which included a two-run homerun. Steve Drew added a pair of hits.
Jeremiah Wolske gave the Vulcans five solid innings in the second game.
He gave up four hits and only one earned run while striking out three.
Jason Castro allowed just four hits and two runs over the next three
innings as Joel Zimmerman struck out two in the final inning.
Following Tony Richie’s RBI triple in the first, Wolske held the
Seminoles in check until the fourth. Two Vulcan errors allowed FSU to
post two more runs. A double by Aaron Cheesman and single by Kevin
Richmond added the final two runs.
With a runner on first, Oligo tripled down the right field line in the
eighth for the Vulcans’ run.
Oligo was 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Vulcans.
