bullet Top players: Third baseman Olin Cohan leads team with .384 batting average and has reached eight time in 14 at-bats ... Designated hitter Tom Nichols (.333) and second baseman Rashad Nichols (.333) among early leaders ... Right-hander Chris Bye was an honorable mention all-West Coast Conference in 1998. He is seventh on St. Mary's all-time strikeout list.

bullet Interesting facts: The last time the teams met was 1979, when UH swept a five-game series here ... The 'Bows hold an 8-4 edge in the series ... UH left-hander Randon Ho was named Western Athletic Conference pitcher of the week for his five-hit, seven-inning effort against Cal State Sacramento last Friday ... Aluminum bats will be used this weekend ... Gaels' opponents have been successful on 7-of-8 stolen base attempts ... UH opponents are 1-for-7, while the 'Bows have swiped 16 bases in 18 attempts.

bullet Series keys: The Rainbows have to forget being ranked, the Gaels' record and can't be caught looking ahead to next weekend's series against Wichita State ... St. Mary's hitters will be out to generate some offense, having produced just 10 runs in five games ... UH head coach Les Murakami doesn't see a problem for his hitters switching back to aluminum bats, "We'll score more runs, but the other guys may too, you never know," he said ... Michael Dartt will start at second base for UH ... Jamie Aloy worked on his pitching deliver in the bullpen during the week. His arm was too high when delivering the pitch last week, causing control problems.

bullet First pitch: Today, 6:35 p.m.; tomorrow, 6:05 p.m.; Sunday, 3:05 p.m.

bullet On the air: Today and tomorrow, live on KCCN radio (1420 AM); Sunday, live on KHNL TV (Channel 5) and KCCN.
