Surfers defeat Paddlers in HCBL

Kevin Grove's two-run triple highlighted a four-run seventh as the Surfers defeated that Paddlers 9-4 in a Hawaii Collegiate Baseball League game at Central Oahu Regional Park yesterday.

The Surfers had taken a 2-1 lead into the bottom seventh but broke open the tight contest with seven runs in their final two at-bats. Mark Anderson singled in two of the team's three runs in the eighth to put the game out of reach.

In another HCBL contest, Ralph Knese drove in five runs and Tyler Brubaker three to lead the North Shore Waves over the Kauai Aliis 14-4.
