Video: Garcia, Kiner-Falefa leave the yard in MLB

A pair of Hawaii's Major Leaguers caught barrel like they were back home in the 50th state Saturday, as former University of Hawai'i star Greg Garcia and Mid-Pacific alumnus Isiah Kiner-Falefa both hit home runs.

Garcia recorded his first career multi-homer game, cracking two home runs and adding a double to help his Cardinals top the Reds 6-1 in Cincinnati. 

Garcia finished the game 3-4 with 3 RBI. He is now hitting .333 on the season. 

A day after cracking his first career Major League hit, Kiner-Falefa gave his parents Kimberly and Fili a present to take back home to Hawai'i. 

Kiner-Falefa cracked his first career home run in the 5th inning of his Rangers 6-5 10th inning win over the Astros in Houston. 

During the 6th inning of the game Isiah's parents were interviewed by Fox Sports Southwest, and showed off the home run ball. 

Isiah finished the game 1-4. The home run is just the 6th of his professional career.
