'Aiea hands Wai'anae first loss of season
Cody Aquino pitched a five-hit shutout to lift 'Aiea to a 2-0 victory over Wai'anae in an O'ahu Interscholastic Association Western Division baseball game yesterday.
The game, which was postponed by rain last week, was played at Wai'anae yesterday because the original site — Central O'ahu Regional Park — was deemed unplayable.
Aquino struck out seven in handing Wai'anae its first loss of the season.
Reid Nakamura hit a home run in the fifth for Na Ali'i.
