capped by Inouye's two-run homer. Inouye, who hadn't homered all
season, connected on another two-run homer in the fifth.
Hawaii's Luis Avila added an RBI single in the sixth, and a
passed ball allowed Robbie Wilder to score in the eighth to make it
Hawaii reliever Darrell Fisherbaugh took the mound for Rodrigues
in the fourth and shut out Kansas the rest of the way.
Nathan Young, the Rainbows' No. 9 hitter, was 3-for-4 with two
runs scored.
Gus Milner was 2-for-5 with an RBI for Kansas.
