Hawaii's own

Benny Agbayani, Mets: Hitting in the leadoff spot, the St. Louis School alumnus was 1-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in New York's 5-3, 10-inning loss to Philadelphia. He was given a free pass by Phillies starter Randy Wolf with the bases loaded in the fourth to force in a run.

Agbayani singled and stole a base in the third inning, but was stranded at third base. With runners at first and second in the eighth and the Mets down 3-2, he grounded into an inning-ending double play against reliever Ricky Bottalico.

Mike Fetters, Dodgers: The Iolani School product did not pitch in Los Angeles' 11-10 win over Colorado.
