Sophomore right-hander Logan Pouelsen tossed a complete-game shutout on Sunday afternoon, as Hawai'i (7-4) managed a 4-0 victory over LMU (3-9) to earn a split of a four-game series that was played at Les Murakami Stadium.
THE DECISIONS: Pouelsen went the distance in the shutout, scattering four hits and issuing no free passes while striking out five. The native of Huntington Beach, Calif. threw 105 pitches (70 strikes) to improve to 2-0 on the year. Freshman Matt Voelker was saddled with the loss after allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits and three walks over 3.2 innings of work. The lefty fell to 0-1 with the loss.
BOX SCORE NOTES: LMU managed four singles on Sunday, but only one Lion baserunner reached scoring position against Pouelsen, as Brandon Shearer reached on a fielder's choice, stole second and moved to third on an errant throw in the second inning before being stranded there … LMU used three relievers on Sunday, as Austin Carder, Josh Robins and Mark Finkelnburg combined to throw 4.1 scoreless innings … Hawai'i stranded 11 runners on base, including six in scoring position … the Rainbow Warriors stranded the bases loaded in the fourth and fifth innings, as Carder and Robins each escaped bases-loaded jams.
LION NOTES: LMU is now 5-24 in road games against Hawai'i … the Lions have had eight of the last 10 games decided by two runs or less, as LMU is 3-7 over the span … LMU suffered a complete-game shutout for the first time since Johnny York went the distance in blanking the Lions, 1-0, on April 14, 2017 at Saint Mary's.
ON DECK: LMU will conclude a string of six consecutive road games at 6 p.m. on Tuesday at UCLA. Live links to follow all the action can be found at LMULions.com.
