Big Island briefs
for another victory
The Corsairs ride a little momentum into their contest today with the Pirates, fresh off their first AJA Memorial Baseball League victory of the season.
Kendrick Gouveia scampered home on a wild pitch to score the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth inning last Sunday as the Corsairs beat the Keaukaha Warriors 5-4 at Wong Stadium.
Trevor Shimokusu followed with a single to center to cap a three-run rally for the Corsairs (1-6). Shimokusu, Michael Sayoboc and Aaron Nishiura finished 2 or 4.
Kaili Tanaka (1-1) picked up the win in relief, yielding a run and five hits with two strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings. Robbie Merguro allowed a run but nailed down the save.
Shannon Camero was 4 for 5 with an RBI single for the Warriors (5-2), and Blaine Medeiros scored three runs. Kele Coloma (0-1) was the losing pitcher out of the bullpen, allowing four hits, four runs —two earned — with two walks and two strikeouts.
The Pirates and Corsairs play at 10 a.m. today at Wong.
