Robinson shuts out Gaels

Kate Robinson threw a six-hit shutout to lead the Hawaii softball team to a 8-0 win over St. Mary's (Calif.) at the Stanford Invitational yesterday in Stanford, Calif.

Robinson picked up her second win of the season while striking out two and walking three. She also contributed on offense, driving in one run.

Kaulana Gould batted 2-for-2 with four RBIs while Noelle Izumi was 3-for-4 with two runs scored. The game was called in the sixth inning because of the eight-run mercy rule when Izumi's hit to left field scored Alana Power.

Hawaii improved to 20-17.

» Three PacWest doubleheaders were rained out yesterday. The canceled game between Chaminade and Hawaii-Hilo will not be made up. Also canceled yesterday was Western New Mexico at Brigham Young-Hawaii and Montana State-Billings vs. Hawaii Pacific at Kailua High School. Both matchups were rescheduled from Friday because of rain.

BYUH hosts Montana State-Billings on Monday and Tuesday.
