Hawaii has a new state baseball champion.
The HHSAA Division One state baseball championship game was supposed to have gone down last Saturday on Maui.
But rain postponed the drama and the game between second seeded Mid-Pacific and Mililani was moved to Tuesday night at Les Murakami Stadium.
But the drama was worth the wait.
Some serious defense in this one.
Second inning, bases loaded with two outs, MPI's Isiah Kiner-Falefa makes the diving stop, then the diving force-out at second.
It was a 0-0 ball game.
The Owls could do little against Trojans starter Kanoa Hironaka.
In fact, trailed 1-0 in the top of the 7th when UH-bound Marcus Doi came through.
A bases loaded single, bringing in two runs, and putting Mid-Pacific on top 2-1.
They would add another run to make it 3-1, and that was enough for Owls pitcher Trey Saito....who put 'em down in order in the last frame....and there it is.
Mid-Pacific claims the state title.
It's the Owls fifth overall state title win, and first since 2002.
Thousands gathered at the memorial to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to those who survived.
You may remember the story we did earlier this week about the Pearl Harbor survivor who was headed here from the mainland for the ceremony, he was bumped from the flight and didn't know if he would get here in time.
It may take drivers a little longer to get around this weekend. On Sunday, there will be lane and road closures for the Honolulu Marathon.
