Maui’s Shane Victorino seems to be enjoying the American League. The Red Sox Fielder extended his hit-streak to three games, going 1-3 with a textbook bunt single in Boston’s 5-0 win over the Rays. In 11 games, Saint Anthony graduate has hit safely in 9 of them, taking his batting average to .341 on the season.
Fellow Wailuku native, Kurt Suzuki and his Nationals got swept at home by baseball’s hottest team, the Atlanta Braves 9-0. In defeat, the Baldwin graduate had half of Washington’s four hits, finishing 2-3 with a pair of singles. That leaves his batting average at .312.
