The Hawaii Tropics finish their road trip with a three game series in Omaha against the Cyclones. The season series is 2-1 in favor of Omaha.

Game 1- The Tropics get bombarded again in a Bob McConnell start as the Cyclones cruise to a win. McConnell gave up eight runs on seven hits and two walks over just two innings. He falls to 4-9 with a disgusting 6.90 ERA.

Hawaii Manager Ernesto Garcia said of McConnell, “We are waiting for Poole to come back from injury so we can move McConnell to the ‘pen.”

CF Jorge Salas was 1 for 4 with a two run homer in the fourth inning. Pierangelo Ferri was 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI.

Omaha wins 11-3.

Game 2- The Tropics score four runs in the eighth inning to take the lead then withstand the Cyclone onslaught to come away with a win. RF Mike Campbell was 3 for 4 with a triple, two RBI and two runs scored. Adhyapayana Mehta was 3 for 5 with three runs scored and swiped two bags. Manny Garcia was 1 for 3 with a double, a run scored and two RBI. Pierangelo Ferri was 1 for 4 with a stolen base and two RBI.

SP Maup Manshert dod just enough to keep the Tropics in the game. He pitched 5 2/3 innings giving up three runs on four hits and walked three batters. He fanned four in a no decision. RP Tye Whitford pitched two clean innings and struck out two batters to get the win.


Hawaii wins 7-6.

Game 3- The Hawaii Tropics get a rare series win with a team effort to down the Omaha Cyclones on the rubber match. SP Niccolo “Notorious” Destefani pitched 5 1/3 innings surrendering four runs on five hits. He was a bit wild as he walked four and struck out four but earned the win to improve to 6-5 with a 4.46 ERA.

LF Bronx ‘Little Bron’ Cortez was 3 for 5 with a solo homer and three runs scored. Manny Garcia was 1 for 2 with a double, two walks, two stolen bases, three runs scored and an RBI. C Ron Shiplack was 2 for 5 with a run scored and two RBI.


Hawaii wins 10-6.
