The two teams representing Hawaii in the Cal Ripken 12U World Series In Branson, Missouri are showing. Both the Honolulu Saints and the Kalanianaole Athletic Club are a perfect 3-0 so far in pool play.

The Saints pounded the Okeeheelee, Florida team, 18-3, on Sunday. The game was stopped via the five-inning mercy rule. The Honolulu squad jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back. Jayden Oshiro extended the lead in the second with a three-run homer. Jaden Anzai drove in 4 RBIs, Pakela Wheeler had 3 RBIs and Jaron Lancaster contributed 2 RBIs. Oshiro picked up the pitching victory, while Brayden Bello and Rand Gushiken provided excellent pitching relief.

The Kalanianaole Athletic Club, meanwhile, shut out the team from Kennewick, Washington, 9-0, earlier today. Pitcher Jonah Brub picked up the win, and Deagan Kawahakui (2-4, 1 run scored), Kaikea Patoc-Young (2-3, 1 RBI), Ryeder Takahashi (1 run scored, 2 RBIs) and Jonah Parker (2 runs scored, 1 RBI) were KAC’s leading hitters.
