POSTED: Saturday, April 04, 2009

Mid-Pacific scored 13 runs in the first inning en route to a 15-3 victory over Punahou in an Interscholastic League of Honolulu baseball game yesterday.

The contest was shortened to five innings due to the 10-run rule.

Alaka'i Aglipay's three-run homer in the top of the first gave the Buffanblu, No. 8 in the Star-Bulletin Top 10, an early lead. The No. 4 Owls roared back, beginning with Derek Tan's two-run homer in the bottom of the first.

Tan finished 2-for-3 with four RBIs. Justin Protacio added a double and three RBIs from the second spot in the order.

The first four hitters in Mid-Pacific's order combined to go 8-for-14 with four walks.

Punahou, the five-time defending state champion, fell to 3-5, five games behind first-place 'Iolani. Mid-Pacific improved to 6-2 and will visit the Raiders today.

Matthew McDaniel pitched a complete game, allowing three hits.
