LOS ANGELES - The LMU softball team wrapped up a 17-game home stand, as well as the non-conference portion of their schedule with a 4-3 setback to Hawaii Wednesday at Smith Field.
The Lions drop to 19-14 overall while the Rainbow Wahine move to 15-14 on the year.
Meghan Harman launched her team-leading ninth home run of the season in the bottom of the sixth as the Lions attempted to come back from a 4-2 deficit. But her solo shot would be the only run scored late in the one-run final.
Hawaii cut the Lion lead to one, 2-1, with a solo home run by Keiki Carlos to lead off the fourth. The Rainbow Wahine would then take the lead with a three run fifth courtesy a home run, RBI-single and sacrifice fly.
The Lion managed just four hits in the game while Hawaii collected 11. Rachael Farrington (5-6) took the loss for LMU, after giving up four earned runs on nine hits and two walks in five innings. The freshman also had six strikeouts.
LMU opens West Coast Conference play on the road on April 5-6, traveling to face Saint Mary's in a three-game series.
