Waianae rallies past
Kapolei in OIA

The Waianae baseball team overcame the elements and a scrappy Kapolei squad to pull out a 6-5 victory in extra innings yesterday and remain undefeated in the Oahu Interscholastic Association Western Division race.

The Seariders (3-0) fell behind 4-1 in the first inning and waited out a 50-minute rain delay before rallying past the host Hurricanes (1-2) in nine innings.

"We showed some composure," Waianae coach Kekoa Kaluhiokalani said. "Kapolei played well and we had a slow start, but we showed some character and it was real good to see."

Waianae third baseman Calvin Uyechi went 3-for-5 and drove in Chad Rodrigues with the winning run in the top of the ninth inning. Clayton Uyechi, Calvin's brother, earned the win on the mound with three innings of scoreless relief.

Searider senior Chevy Teves kept Waianae in the game by shutting down Kapolei after taking the mound in the second inning in relief of starter Allen Holt.

Teves struck out nine batters in his longest outing of the season. He is recovering from reconstructive knee surgery to repair an injury he suffered during football season.

"He shut the door and changed the momentum," Kaluhiokalani said. "That guy is a surprise to me sometimes. When he puts his mind to it, he's hard to beat."

The Waianae comeback overshadowed a gritty complete-game performance by Kapolei starter Colin Dumlao. The junior pitched eight innings a week earlier against Nanakuli.

"He has that bulldog mentality," Kapolei coach Tommy Ebanez said. "I went out there to talk to him and he didn't want to come out.

"That's how our team is. We have a bunch of kids that aren't going to give up."

Waianae scored a single run in the top of the first inning only to see Kapolei respond with four in the bottom of the frame.

Dumlao led off the inning with a ground-rule double to left and scored on a grounder by Drake Kula. Charles Recamara and Bryan Padayao contributed RBI singles later in the inning.

Heavy rains came early in the second and threatened to postpone the contest. But the Kapolei coaches, players and grounds crew worked to make the field playable once the rain stopped.

Teves entered the game after the delay and used a biting curveball to baffle the Hurricane hitters.

Waianae chipped away with two runs in the fourth and completed the comeback with two more in the fifth. Holt atoned for a shaky inning on the mound with a two-run single to give the Seariders a 5-4 lead.

Kapolei tied the game in the top of the seventh. Kula led off with an infield single and moved to second on an error. Daryl Figueroa laid down a bunt and Teves' throw to first was wild, allowing Kula to score the tying run.

Clayton Uyechi moved from shortstop to the mound with no outs and Figueroa representing the winning run on second. But he got a pop-up, a strikeout and a groundout to send the game into extra innings.

After a scoreless eighth inning, Rodrigues singled to center with one out and moved to third on a sacrifice fly by Darryl Ohelo. Calvin Uyechi then drilled a single to center to drive in Rodrigues.

Clayton Uyechi walked Figueroa to start the bottom of the ninth, but ended the game with two strikeouts and a groundout.
