Sharks shut out Honu with 4 pitchers
Kanehisa Arime allowed only one hit in 5 1/3 innings to help the Honolulu Sharks blank the North Shore Honu 1-0 in Hawaii Winter Baseball at Les Murakami Stadium last night.
Arime struck out five and walked one to remain undefeated and earn his second win of the season for the Sharks.
Honolulu scored the only run it would need in the first inning when Eric Campbell singled in Atsushi Agumori.
The league's other game, between the Waikiki BeachBoys and West Oahu CaneFires, was rained out and rescheduled as part of a doubleheader on Nov. 12.
