UH baseball resilience … local Tar Heel fan

There  is a lot to like about this UH baseball team.

When a team gets no-hit in a series opener and comes back to win three in a row and take the series, that says a lot about its heart and grit.

The Rainbows have a lot of pitching depth, and it’s spread out among so many arms — a big plus.

It was the Kolten Wong show again, a 2-run homer in the first. Then, he beats out a double-play ball and comes around to score an insurance run. It was needed as Coastal Carolina scored a run in the ninth to make it a 4-3 final.

Big things like 2-run homers and little things like hustling out every groundball. That’s what wins baseball games.

I knew I wasn’t the only Hawaii guy to adopt North Carolina as a favorite college basketball team. Dennis Wong of Honolulu confirmed it with his note yesterday in response to Saturday’s column.

“I’ve been a die hard Rainbow or Warrior fan, but since we don’t often go to the NCAA’s, I also chose North Carolina because
of Dean Smith and his innovative offensive ideas like the 4 corners.”

    I like the baseball team alot too. I can’t put my finger on it, but it seems like this team has something that recent teams didn’t. Maybe moxy? Confidence? Not quite sure. They seem capable of competing with anyone they step on the field with. They definitely seem to have depth at pitching, something they lacked in the past. I know its early and I don’t want to jinx the team, but we may be finally seeing what Coach Trap was brought here to do.
