2013 Hilo Veterans Day Baseball Challenge

Bronco Division:

Game 1: Hui 13 RBI (Black) 3

Game 2: Waiakea Uka 9 Hui 2

Game 3: Kona Crush 6 Hui 5

Our Hui ‘Aumākua Bronco’s came out on fire in the opening game of the tournament with an 11 run explosion in the bottom of the 1st inning to put the game out of reach and coming away with a winning TKO over RBI (Black) 13-3!  Great job!   Our next contest featured a strong Waiakea Uka team against our determined Hui boys.  Riding high off our win on Thursday, Uka’s pitching kept our bats in check as we could only plate two runs losing 9-2!  Our next opponent was Kona Crush.  A must win for both sides to stay alive, we came out firing jumping out to a 3-1 lead!  The score remained that way until the 5th inning when we traded runs with Crush and still held a 5-2 lead.  In the 6th inning, we gave up three unearned runs that turned the game into a nail biter! With one more at bat in the 7th, our bats just couldn’t muster that one run, while Crush scored the game winner in the bottom of the 7th!  Our Hui boys battled until the end, and we are very proud of their showing.  This was their first tournament together and the future looks great for our Hui Broncos!  Keep your heads up and keep practicing hard.  Team work!  E Hana Pūalu Kākou!  Together, we can!
