Stingrays’ rally sinks Sharks

Star-Bulletin staff

The Maui Stingrays broke a five-game losing streak with a five-run sixth inning in a 6-5 triumph over the Honolulu Sharks in a Hawaii Winter Baseball game at Rainbow Stadium last night.

Eugene Kingsale's bases-clearing triple down the left-field line was the key hit in the inning.

At Hilo, the West Oahu CaneFires won their second consecutive game with Tadahito Iguchi hitting a two-run homer in the fifth inning.
