Island Movers lose in Japan
Hawaii Pacific pitcher Micah Takahashi gave up a pair of runs in the seventh inning on Sunday in Osaka and the Hawaii Island Movers lost to Osaka Gakuin 10-6.
The Movers were leading 6-5 after six innings before Osaka scored three runs in the seventh and two in the eighth while Osaka's bullpen held Hawaii scoreless.
Mikihiro Kishinaka, who attends Osaka Gakuin but is playing for the Movers this season, took the loss for not being able to pitch out of Takahashi's jam. Joshua Leite of Saddleback College, James Legsay of Monterey Peninsula and Austin Potter of Lewis-Clark paired hits for the movers.
The Movers beat Osaka 12-11 on Saturday.
