O'ahu All-Stars win Cal Ripken World Series

Advertiser Staff and News Services

Kalani Lagoc-Crawford's double scored Ryan Yamane in the second inning, and three pitchers combined on a one-hitter to lead the O'ahu All-Stars to the Cal Ripken World Series championship with a 1-0 victory over Mexico at Aberdeen, Md., today.

Lagoc-Crawford struck out 11 in four innings, Jordan DePonte pitched a scoreless fifth and Kewby Meyer a perfect sixth in which he struck out the side for the save for O'ahu.

O'ahu, which won the U.S. title yesterday, finished the tournament 7-0.

Mexico (6-1), the International division winner, was the two-time defending World Series (12-under) champion.

In the second inning, Yamane doubled before Lagoc-Crawford hit his double for the only run of the game.

Mexico's only hit was a double by Francisco Maturin.
