Hawai'i now 3-0 in World Series
Quentin Peterson pitched a no-hitter as Hawai'i defeated Brooklyn, 10-0, yesterday in a game shortened to five innings at the Babe Ruth (age 13) World Series in Abbeville, La.
Hawai'i scored a run in the bottom of the fifth when the game was called because of a 10-run mercy rule.
Kendall Hutson and Channon "Pake" Coloma each batted 2-for-3 with Coloma driving in four runs.
Hawai'i (3-0) plays its final pool play game against host Abbeville tomorrow.
