Waikiki finally busted out in HWB play, scoring six runs in the bottom of the second inning en route to an 11-2 blowout win. The Beach Boys won their first game despite making five errors. The total was high for a game--the teams combined for eight errors. Tony Thomas of Waikiki made three errors by himself.

 

The CaneFires helped Waikiki's second inning rally with some poor defensive play. Damon Sublett drove in three runs on a base hit. The runs made it home safely when West Oahu's Miles Durham made a throwing error.

 

Roger Kieschnick has found a permanent spot in the lineup for Waikiki. He has appeared in all five games for the Beach Boys. His .294 batting average is third best among the regulars in the lineup.

 

Beach Boys starting pitcher Yuhei Takai held the CaneFires to three hits. The bullpen was excellent in relief of Takai. Jordan Pratt and David Pfeiffer, both from the Dodgers organization, combined for five innings of hitless pitching. Pratt allowed a run to score in the sixth inning on a wild pitch. He threw two wild pitches in the game.

 

Waikiki begins a three game series with North Shore tonight. North Shore is the only team in the league to feature players from the Korean Baseball Organization as well as Nippon Professional Baseball. A handful of Lotte Giants joined the Honu for 2008.
