BYUH water polo loses to Loyola Marymount

The Brigham Young-Hawaii men's water polo team lost to No. 11 Loyola Marymount 16-7 yesterday in a makeup match.

The defeat dropped the Seasiders to 3-6 for the season. Vanja Kalabic led BYU-Hawaii with three goals. Tyler Oakes, Mike Rieben and Clint Stevens managed a goal each as well.

The Seasiders' next match is Friday against Chaminade.

Hawaii's Own

Mike Fetters, Pirates: The Iolani graduate took his first loss as a Pirate yesterday, giving up three runs to go with the three outs he induced.

Fetters was waved in from the bullpen to shut down Mike Piazza with two outs in the eighth, and he did so, striking him out. Fetters had faced Piazza only once before in his career, walking him.

But Fetters unraveled in the ninth, allowing New York to break a 1-1 tie after plunking Tsuyoshi Shinjo and walking Jay Payton with two outs.

Rey Ordonez plated Shinjo with a single to left, then Mark Johnson sent Fetters to the showers with a two-run double.

Chris Truby, Astros: The Damien alumnus has not played since Sept. 5, but may get a pinch-hitting chance against San Francisco closer Rob Nen today. Truby has faced Nen twice in his brief major league career, but has yet to reach base against him.
