West Oahu 7, North Shore 6
Chris Carter (Athletics) tied for second in the minor leagues in home runs this season with 39. He didn’t slow down yesterday, as the North Shore first baseman went 3-for-4 with a solo-homer, a double and four runs scored. But West Oahu came from behind in the top of the ninth to defeat North Shore 7-6. The winning run for the CaneFires scored on a passed ball when Honu catcher Adam Davis (Indians) failed to block a pitch from A’s righthander Sam Demel that allowed Tyler Henson (Orioles) to score. West Oahu got two RBIs from Miles Durham (Pirates) and Cyle Hankerd (Diamondbacks). The CaneFires also got a big game from James Skelton (Tigers), who went 3-for-3 with a double. The Honu’s offense also got production from DH Ryan Kalish (Red Sox) who went 4-for-5 with an RBI and his fifth stolen base. Second baseman Kyle Martin (Royals) went 2-for-5 with an RBI and left fielder Matt McBride (Indians) went 2-for-5 with two RBIs.

Shortstop Yuji Onizaki (Yakult Swallos) went 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs, and first baseman Yonder Alonso (Reds), who went 1-for-3 with a double. The Sharks offense was led by Ruben Tejada (Mets), who went 1-for-4 with a double.
