On this date in 1986, Kalani pitcher Aaron Miyakawa used the weather to his advantage in holding Kalaheo hitless over seven innings in a 10-0 victory.
Miyakawa walked two and allowed only three runners on base on the wet, windy day at Aloha Stadium. Matt Fujikawa saved his gem with a diving catch in left field when the score was still 1-0. Greg Taguchi led the Falcons with three hits and three RBI.
Miyakawa was an OIA East All-Star that year with a 7-2 record and 2.28 ERA and then beat Kaimuki, Kalaheo and Radford in the playoffs.
Miyakawa kept his winning ways to begin the state tournament, striking out 10 and walking only two in an 11-7 win over Waiakea. He was part of a parade of pitchers who got pounded in the seventh inning of a 14-4 loss to Baldwin in the semifinals.
Right on! He’s the MAN @100 Sails Hawaii Prince!!!
