HONOLULU - The University of Hawaii baseball team was swept by St. Mary's (Calif.) in a series finale doubleheader on Sunday at Les Murakami Stadium.

The Rainbows fell 6-2 in 10 innings in the opener, then dropped the second game 5-3 to fall to 21-15 on the season. UH had won their previous three games, including the first two games of the series.

In the first game Sunday, which had been scheduled for just seven innings, a blooper to center field by Hawaii's Collin Bennett scored two runs in the seventh to tie it at 2-2, sending the game into extras.

Brenden Kalfus hit a three-run double off Rainbows reliever David Longville (1-2) in the Gaels' four-run 10th. Patrick Keane (3-0) got the win for St. Mary's.

Bennett finished 3-for-4, and Zack Swasey was 2-for-4 for UH.

In the second game, the Gaels (16-17) scored all their runs in the fifth inning.

Kyle Dowdy (1-2) took the loss for UH, allowing three runs on two hits in 1/3 of an inning. Gaels starter Jordan Mills (3-3) earned the win.

Swasey went 2-for-3 with two RBIs for the Rainbows.

Hawaii next returns to Western Athletic Conference play with a three-game set at San Jose State starting Friday.
