Drabek shuts down Waikiki

Kyle Drabek limited Waikiki to one hit over six innings as the Honolulu Sharks beat the BeachBoys 4-1 in Hawaii Winter Baseball yesterday at Les Murakami Stadium.

Honolulu (16-15) pulled within a half-game of Waikiki (17-15) for a berth in the championship on Sunday. The Sharks have four games left in the regular season.

Drabek, a Philadelphia Phillies prospect, struck out three batters before giving way to former Roosevelt and Hawaii Pacific pitcher Kaimi Mead. The Cleveland prospect threw two scoreless innings to lower his league-leading ERA to 1.45. Blake King gave up a home run to Roger Kieschnick to spoil the shutout for Honolulu.

» The North Shore Honu scored three runs in the top of the seventh inning to force a 6-6 tie with the West Oahu CaneFires at Hans L'Orange Park.

The CaneFires (16-14) could have clinched a spot in the championship game with a win over the defending champion Honu (13-18).
