The Rainbow baseball team, in a classic one on Wednesday night. Brand new Rainbow boss, Mike Trapasso, looking to win his debut as Hawaii head coach. He faced a tall order, going up against the nation's No. 2 team in Florida State.
Before the game, Rainbow Stadium, officially renamed Les Murakami Stadium in honor of the hall of fame coach. And early on Coach Les not liking this. FSU jumping on top in the top of the 4th. Brian Sech hit a sac fly RBI and just like that, the Noles were up 2-zip.
Hawaii had no hits thru 5 and 2-thirds. But the Bows come back and tie the game at 2. The Bows had life after a tough early going. The next batter draws a free pass to load the bases. Then, it's Derek Honma, with the game on the line.
The Bows rally to win a classic, 3-2 your final. Head coach Mike Trapasso, a winner in his first game as Hawaii boss. Just the icing on the cake for Les Murakami night at the ballpark.
Afterwards, Coach Trap talked about the big Rainbow win.
"I couldn't be any more proud of our kids because they've worked so hard, they've done so much, they've gone thru so much. And it really is a great ending to a special night with the ceremony before and now its officially Les Murakami stadium. I couldn't be more happier to win my first game as a head coach in such dramatic fashion but more importantly, winning against a team that I respect so much like Florida State."
The Bows, back in action against the Seminoles: Thursday and Friday at 6:35 p.m. and on Saturday at 12:05 p.m.
