Baldwin takes control of MIL baseball race
By Fred Guzman
The Baldwin baseball team is every bit as dominant as most fans suspected and MIL rivals feared. The Bears improved their league record to 6-0 following a three-game sweep against Maui High to take control of the league’s Division-I race.
The Bears opened with a 6-5, eight-inning win over the Sabers on Thursday, and followed that up with victories of 10-2 on Saturday and 8-5 on Saturday at Iron Maehara Stadium.
The losses dropped Maui High to 4-5, while allowing Kamehameha-Maui to move into second place with a 4-2 mark. This week, Baldwin tangles with Kekaulike (2-4) while Maui High plays a key series versus the Warriors.
The Bears are coming off a runnerup finish to Punahou in last season’s state baseball tournament.
