SEE GOOD BALL
Lihue is still undefeated, hav
ing taken their first game of the
second series from Makaweli at
Lihue last Sunday. The fans are
still wondering how it happened,
because Makaweli out-played her
opponent at every stage of the
gaiiie. They did better fielding
and better batting. But Lihue
played in her usual luck and
nosed out the winning run in the
last half of the ninth.
Makaweli played good ball, and
started oil" by annexing one run
in the first inning. Lihue, al
though getting two hits in the
third, was not able to score until
the fourth, when they put one
gan to look
hue as thev
started the fifth by
runs, and things be
rather black for Li
were unable to over
come this lead in their hah" of the
inning. But by taking M. Per
reira out of the box and substi
tuting Bob Okuda, they handed
Makaweli a goose egg in the first
half of the sixth, and came hack
with a batting streak in their
half that netted them three runs.
Lihue was now one run to the
good, and the home fans began to
buck u) and lake notice. Their
joy was short lived, however, as
Makaweli tied the score again by
s-qucezing in another run in the
seventh. Lihue tried hard, but
Ihe last half of the ninth came
and the score ws still four all.
In (he last half nine went to do
or die. They started out by put
ting in John Malina as pinch hit
ter. Like the famous Casey, the
mighty John determined to clout
out one of his old time home runs,
took ,- mighty swipe at the ball
and missed. However, in the third
try he knocked a high bounder to
short, but was thrown out at first.
F. Fernandez, the next man up.
got a pass, Stoled second and
and third, and was brought home
by a hit to short by M. Perreira.
Lihue was out -fielded and out
batted throughout the game, but
she won by her superior team
Work, which, after all. is the thing
that counts in baseball. '
The Kalaheo-Makee game at
Kapaa, was decided in favor of
the former. The Kapaas were
very weak at batting, while the
Kalaheo huskies fell on to Wood
and knocked him out of the box.
The McBryde-Koloa game at
Eleele, went to McBryde, 5-1.
Next Sunday's games are: Ka
laheo vs. Lihue at Lihue; Makee
vs. Koloa at Koloa; McBryde vs.
Makaweli at Makaweli.
