DOING HIS PART IN A LOSING CAUSE
The Phillies' Shane Victorino rounded the bases after hitting a two-run home run against the Diamondbacks in the third inning yesterday. Victorino, a Maui native, had the first two-homer game of his major league career, but it wasn't enough as the Diamondbacks pounded the Phillies 10-4.

Tuioti likely to join Warriors’ staff
Former Hawaii defensive tackle Tony Tuioti has accepted a position on the Warriors football staff, two sources close to the situation told the Star-Bulletin yesterday.
But UH football coach Greg McMackin said it is not a done deal and he still wants to have a final interview with Tuioti before making any announcement.
The job is expected to be administrative, with much of the work centering on coordinating recruiting efforts.
Since completing his UH playing career in 1999, Tuioti has been a high school football coach, including head coach at Kalaheo High School. He now lives with his wife and children in Las Vegas.
An official announcement may come from UH tomorrow.
