North Shore 3, Honolulu 1
North Shore left hander Jose Capellan (Red Sox) extended his scoreless streak to 8 2/3 innings on Sunday against Honolulu. Capellan went 3 2/3 allowing no runs and striking out three but did not factor in the decision. Sharks right hander Kyle Drabek (Phillies) was solid in his first start of the HWB league season going 5 2/3 allowing three runs and striking out five. The Honu offense was led by first baseman Chris Carter (A’s) who went 2-for-3, and center fielder Corey Brown (A’s) went 1-for-5 with a run, a double, and an RBI. The Sharks managed little offense against North Shore’s pitching even after Capellan left, but left fielder Michael Taylor (Phillies) did manage to go 2-for-5 in the game.
