In the First Round of the 2014 Summer Season Playoffs, both single elimination games, were decided by one run with all four teams having the tying or go ahead run on base in the 8th and 9th inning.
The Kihei Centipedes overcame an early 5 run deficit for a 7 to 6 victory over the Lahaina Warriors. Mark Austad and Dan Bardenhagen fueled the comeback with 3 hits apiece and Jacob Minkler pitched 8 innings for the win. For the Warriors, Brian Arakawa had a perfect day at the plate with a hit, 2 walks and a sac fly while his son Jordan Arakawa pitched a complete game and added a hit and walk. The Centipedes challenge the 2014 Spring Season Champion Upcountry Dirtbags at 10am at Maui High.
The second game of the double header featured the expansion Makena Royals versus the La Perouse Pirates. The Royals won in the bottom of the 9th inning 8-7 by a walk off RBI single by manager Rick Kealoha-Jacobson, who also doubled earlier in the game. Brandon Gonsalves led off the 9th inning with a double and was moved to third by a perfect sac bunt by Clint Conrady. The Royals face off against the Central Rays at 1:15pm at Maui High this Sunday.
