UH-Washington postponed by rain

By Stacy Kaneshiro
Advertiser Staff Writer

The rain has continued to spoil the First Hawai'i Title Rainbow Tournament.

Last night's game between Hawai'i and Washington was postponed because of rain. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader today.

The makeup is set for 4 p.m. and is scheduled for nine innings. The regularly scheduled game is slated for 7 p.m., or 30 minutes after the end of the first game.

The game between Arkansas and Texas-Arlington has been moved up to 10 a.m. today, as both teams have flights scheduled for tonight.

Ticket stubs for last night's game will be honored for today's games.

This is the second rainout of the tournament. Hawai'i's game on Tuesday against UTA also was postponed by rain, giving the Rainbows their second doubleheader in five days. They also have a regularly scheduled doubleheader next Saturday as part of a five-game series with Western Illinois.

Rain also delayed the start of yesterday's game between the Razorbacks and Mavericks for one hour, four minutes.


Danny Hamblin blasted his third home run of the tournament to back starter Shaun Seibert and lead No. 11 Arkansas over Texas-Arlington yesterday to improve to 3-1 in the First Hawai'i Title Rainbow Tournament.

Seibert (2-0) went five-plus innings, giving up two runs, four hits and two walks with five strikeouts for the Razorbacks (12-1). James Gilbert allowed a run in 2 2/3 relief innings and Daryl Maday pitched a scoreless 1 1/3 for his second save of the season.

Austin Bridges (2-2) allowed five runs (four earned), nine hits and two walks in 4 1/3 innings for the Mavericks (4-10), who dropped to 1-3 in the tournament.

Hamblin hit a two-run home run to left in the fifth to increase the Razorbacks' lead to 5-2.
