Bayne, Saint Louis cool off Pac-Five
Winning pitcher Cameron Bayne helped his own cause by giving Saint Louis the lead it needed to narrowly defeat No. 6 Pac-Five yesterday in Interscholastic League of Honolulu baseball at Ala Wai Field.
It was the Crusaders' first win of the young league season.
Trailing 6-5 with one out in the top of the seventh, Bayne connected for a two-run double to put Saint Louis up by one.
Pac-Five tried to come back in the bottom of the seventh when Aaron Chilcote doubled and then advanced to third on a passed ball. But the Wolfpack didn't capitalize as Bayne pitched out of the tough situation by striking out the last batter.
