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.
