On this day in 1959, Lyman Koike and Thomas Serikaku each banged out three hits and the Mid-Pacific baseball team beat Kaimuki 13-5.
Herbert Nakasone took a two-hit shutout into the ninth inning before Kaimuki rallied to knock him out of the box.
The win moved the Owls into fifth place in the ILH with the four-team playoffs looming. The Owls tied Punahou with a win on the last day of the regular season and then won a three-team playoff to reach the postseason. Mid-Pacific fell short from there as Kamehameha took the ILH title.
