HWB Dish: Mitchell Paces Honolulu

Honolulu 6, North Shore 2
After ending in a tie Thursday, the Sharks got out in front and defeated the North Shore Honu in an abbreviated, seven-inning game. Center fielder Michael Mitchell (Rockies) paced the Sharks’ offense by going 3-for-4 with two doubles. The next hitter in the order, second baseman Greg Veloz (Mets), drove him in by going 2-for-4 with two RBIs and a stolen base. The Honu’s only extra-base hit was a solo home run by second baseman Kurt Mertins (Royals), as part of a 2-for-3 performance.

Waikiki 11, West Oahu 2
The BeachBoys got their first win of the season with an 11-2 thumping of the West Oahu CaneFires. West Oahu managed just three hits, including a double by second baseman Jim Negrych (Pirates). The Beachboys committed five errors, but it didn’t really matter, however, as Waikiki put up six run in the bottom of the second, three in the bottom of the third and two more in the bottom of the sixth. BeachBoys designated hitter Damon Sublett (Yankees) went 2-for-4 with a double and four RBIs. First baseman Todd Frazier (Reds) went 1-for-4 with a double, right fielder Alfredo Silverio (Dodgers) went 1-for-3 with a double and catcher Austin Romine (Yankees) went 2-for-3. Second baseman Tony Thomas (Cubs) went 2-for-4 with two RBIs, but also committed three errors.

Hawaii is Sublett’s first action since mid-summer, when he injured an ankle.
