After a rough start of the season, HPU, junior Paul Nishimura’s grand slam in game four helped the Sea Warriors win three out of a four-game series against the Lions of Patten University Feb 26 and 27 at Central O‘ahu Regional Park in Waipio.

In the first game, Jonathan Overall’s homer to left field in the top of the third gave the Lions the lead, 6-3. The Sea Warriors quickly answered back, closing the gap to two with Danny Lee’s two-run homer to the left line. HPU tied the game in the bottom of the fifth with a double from Andrew Sramek, bringing in Tripper Chung and Spencer Omalza, for a 7-7 score. Then in the eighth, Paul Nishimura pitching relief, allowed the Lions three more runs. HPU had more hits than Patten (13), but gave up four errors, allowing the Lions to win 11-7.

In the night cap, Patten again scored first in the top of the second with a two-run homer by Derek Luque. Both teams were scoreless after the third inning, until the bottom of the seventh when Nishimura’s triple allowed Mike Kelly, a pinch runner for CHung, scored to tie the game. A Mike Kealoha’s single brought in Geoffrey Say, winning the game for HPU, 3-2.

Starting day two, HPU swept Patten University 12-6, as Nishimura’s four-run homer gave a huge boost to the Sea Warriors in the bottom of the third, ending the inning 5-2. Kyle Moloney pitched relief, giving up two runs in the top of the ninth, but the Lions weren’t able to make the comeback.
In the second night cap, freshman pitcher David Chow (1-0) helped the Sea Warriors win by allowing only one run on five hits for the Lions, ending the game 5-1, HPU. The Sea Warriors improved to 3-6 as the Lions fall to 5-12 in the season.

The Sea Warriors will face Grand Canyon University in a seven-game series starting March 6 at Waipio. The first game is scheduled to start at 4 p.m.
