Campbell battles past Mililani in softball
by Stanley Lee
Advertiser Staff Writer
MILILANI Her two homers elicited noise and cheer from her team and fans, but after Campbell pitcher Katie Manumā went down with an injury, a hush blanketed the usual lively softball banter yesterday.
Manumā got her ankle taped up and returned to the game; later creating more noise from both sides when she was called for an illegal pitch that tied the score in the bottom of the seventh inning against Mililani.
Campbell then put on a loud rally in the eighth inning to beat the Trojans, 7-4, in an O'ahu Interscholastic Association Red West softball game. The Sabers, ranked third in The Advertiser's Top 10 poll, is 8-0 while defending state champion and No. 1 Mililani is 4-2.
"I just didn't want to leave my team behind in a situation like that," said Manumā, who also hit two solo homers to center field.
Manumā said she tripped and tweaked her ankle going after a ball hit by Cheyenne Koki in the sixth. Manumā was moving to her left out of the pitcher's circle to field the ball when she landed on her ankle, and Mililani courtesy runner Mari Kajiwara scored on the play to cut the deficit to 4-3.
Manumā induced two ground outs to end the sixth and struck out the first batter in the seventh. Manumā was in the midst of intentionally walking Andi Felise when she was called for an illegal pitch with two outs and runners at the corners. The call allowed Kristi Oshiro, who singled earlier, to score from third and tie the score 4-4. After Felise walked, Manumā picked up her sixth strikeout to end the inning.
"I just got hungrier," said Manumā, who said her ankle wasn't bothering her during the call.
The Sabers responded with three runs in the eighth. Courtesy runner Tiana Rosario, who replaced Manumā after she walked to lead off the inning, scored on Taylor Rosa-Ramon's single to left. Brianne Silva-Kapihe's infield single loaded the bases and Daylene Antonio and Gerika Pantohan each drove in a run to make it 7-4.
Manumā retired the side in order in the bottom of the eighth, the last on a line out to shallow center caught by Collette Black.
"We have a lot of character, confidence. We all know we have to win the game," said Rosa-Ramon, who batted 2 for 2 after entering the game late as the designated hitter. "We can't rely on one person. We just all back each other up. We're one family."
The Trojans looked nothing like the team from Tuesday's 7-0 loss to the Sabers. Mililani spent the week focusing on hitting and led 1-0 after the first inning yesterday. Campbell scored three runs in the third to make it 3-1, but Mililani closed to 3-2 when Rebecca Lee drove in Oshiro in the fifth.
"The first game, we had a lot of mental errors, we had trouble hitting," said Oshiro, who batted 4 for 4 and scored three runs. "We focused on batting practice, hitting quicker pitches ... focused more on the little things. On the mental side of it, we actually did a team bonding dinner last night, did some activities that brought everybody together and on the same page with things."
