Campbell (15-1) 101 000 0 — 2 5 3
WP—Aliya Harmon. LP—Nadia Delzer.
Leading hitters—Bald: LB Kahahawai-Kekona 4-5, 2b, 3 runs, RBI; Harmon 2-4, HR, 4 RBIs; Saree-Ann Kekahuna 2-3, HR, 2 RBIs; Siena DeCambra 2b, 3 runs; Bryana Yoshida 2-3, 2b, run, 2 RBIs; Alyssa Ferreira 2-2, 2 runs, RBI. Camp: Aleisa Ranches HR.

>> Bears pull off the upset, handing the Sabers (15-1) their first loss of the season. Baldwin will get ‘Iolani in the second semifinal Friday night. Campbell is first No. 1 seed to lose in the quarterfinals since Kamehameha in 2014 and it’s the first time since 2009 during its run of 14 straight state-tournament appearances that it lost its opener.

TOP 7: Yoshida bloops a single into shallow center and the Bears add another run to make it 8-2. Second hit of the game for Yoshida, who has two RBIs. A total of 14 hits for the Bears and that total will grow. Kahahawai-Kekona gets her fourth hit of the game and then Aliya Harmon, the pitcher, blasts a three-run shot. What a performance by the Bears.

TOP 5: The hits keep coming for the Bears. Bryana Yoshida with an RBI double to make it 7-2. It could have been more but Seaerra Fuentes-Arellano made a great throw from center to nail a runner at the plate. Campbell makes a pitching change and brings in Chloe Sales down 7-2. Baldwin gets 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings against Nadia Delzer. Fuentes-Arellano then makes an UNBELIEVABLE diving catch in right-center to save two runs. She saves three runs in the inning and is the only reason this hasn’t become a complete blowout.

TOP 4: The Bears explode for four runs and the No. 1 seed is in some trouble. Four straight two-out hits bring in runs with Kahahawai-Kekona nabbing her third hit of the game already.

BOT 3: Sabers get a run on a wild pitch but the Sabers work out of a jam. Hoku Pacheco with the single and run scored for the Sabers.

BOT 1: Aleisa Ranches with a solo homer to cut the lead in half. That’s now 13 homers on the day and 26 homers in the tournament.

TOP 1: LB Kahahawai-Kekona sets the tone with a leadoff double on the second pitch and Saree-Ann Kekahuna goes opposite field for a two-run homer to give the MIL runner-up Bears an early 2-0 lead.

BOT 6: Liana Heshiki just crushed a ball that hit the top of the batting cages way out in right-center.

TOP 6: Jadalee Takara gives Roosevelt some life with a three-run homer just over the fence in left-center to make it 10-4. Big two-out homer.

Punahou strings together seven straight two-out hits to put up an eight spot in the second inning and D’Asha Saiki blasts a two-run homer with two outs in the third inning for a 10-1 lead.

Kylie Kawamura singles home the Rough Riders’ first run in the top of the third.

Leading hitters—Lei: Gianna Araki HR, 2 RBIs; Alyssa Asuncion 3 runs; Kiana Domingo 3-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs; Alana Jarra-Parker 3-5, 2b, HR, 2 runs, 6 RBIs; Lovey Kepaa 1-2, 3 runs; Torie Au 2 runs; Alyssa Abe 1-2, 2 RBIs; Daysha Paracuelles 2 runs; Kawena Kahana-Travis 3-5, 2 HR’s, 3 runs, 5 RBIs. Lah: Ocean Makekau 4-4, 2b, 2 runs; Nohili Hong HR, 2 runs, 2 RBIs; Ka’aina Kalanikau HR, 4 RBIs; Shaelia Pascua 2-2, run, 2 RBIs.

This is now the highest-scoring game in the 42-year history of the state tournament in Division I. Alana Jarra-Parker with a two-run homer to make it 18-9 for home run No. 20 in the tourney. Kahana-Travis with a two-run homer, her second in as many at-bats. 21-9.

TOP 5: Kawena Kahana-Travis gets in on the fun with a solo homer to left-center. Another ball crushed.

BOT 4: Lahainaluna’s Kaaina Kalanikau just deposited a grand slam over the fence in center. Lunas started the inning down 14-3 but have cut it to 14-9.

BOT 3: Lahainaluna’s Nohili Hong hits a two-run homer to left to set a state-tournament record with the 17th home run hit and we’re only in the third inning of the sixth game.

BOT 2: Shaelia Pascua, who came on in relief in the top of the inning, hits a two-out RBI single to get the Lunas on the board. Lahainaluna had a chance for at least two more but Daisha Dagdag‘s pop-up to shallow center is caught by Mikayla Pinera, who makes a nice shoe-string catch to end the inning.

TOP 1: It takes Lahainaluna starter Seraya Casco 33 pitches to get her first out as Leilehua starts the inning drawing three walks followed by a two-run single by Alana Jarra-Parker. Alyssa Abe draws a bases-loaded walk and Kawena Kahana-Travis hits a two-run single to left to make it 5-0. An RBI groundout is followed by a two-run homer by Gianna Araki off the scoreboard in right field. 8-0. That homer is the 16th hit in the tournament through 5+ games, tying the record.

‘Iolani 11, Kealakehe 0, 5 inn.

>> ‘Iolani’s Aleia Agbayani hit two more homers to give her three in the tournament. A total of 15 homers have been hit in the first five games of the tournament. The record an entire state tournament in Division I is 16.

>> Agbayani is now 6-for-7 with a double, triple, three homers, six runs scored and nine RBIs in two tournament games. She joined Cassie Ho as the only Raiders to hit two home runs in the same game in the state tournament.
