MANOA - Three pitchers combined on a two-hitter and Kapalama beat Maui, 4-1, in a battle of Kamehameha Schools Wednesday night in quarterfinal action of the Wally Yonamine Foundation Division I baseball tournament at Les Murakami Stadium.

The top-seeded Kapalama team will face fourth-seeded Campbell at 7 p.m. Thursday in the second semifinal of the night.

Greyson Osbun pitched six scoreless innings, allowing two hits - both by Shiloh Gilliland - to earn the win. He reached 107 pitches through six innings (110 is the limit for a game). Kainoa Kaneshiro started the top of the seventh, but walked the the first batter he faced, Japheth Joaquin. After striking out La'iku Wong, he walked Naked Kahalehau. Catcher Aukai Kea tried to pickoff the runner, but his throw sailed into right field and Joaquin tried to take third, but was gunned down on a throw from right fielder Ayden Lobetos to shortstop Elijah Ickes. A wild pitch sent Kahalehau to second, where he then scored when Ziah Chang reached on a two-base throwing error by second baseman Pono Nakano. That's when Kapalama coach Daryl Kitagawa brought in Logan Sanchez from the bullpen. He struck out Hai'li Dudoit on three called strikes to earn the save.

Kapalama took a 1-0 lead in the first. With one out, Jace Souza walked, went to second on a wild pitch and made it to third on a throwing error by catcher Duke Aloy. After Kea was intentionally walked, Souza scored on Lobetos' sacrifice fly to center.

The Oahu team struck again in the second. Cody Branco doubled with one out and a walk to Jayden Montero and single by Nakano loaded the bases. Ickes lined a single to center to score Branco to make it 2-0. KS-Maui starting pitcher Noah Pacheco retired the next two batters to end the inning.

Kapalama was at it again in the third. Lobetos led off with a single, took second on a ground out and scored on Matthew Zarriello's single to center before Branco made the last out.

Kapalama added a run in the sixth against Kaimi Kahalekai. Branco led off with a walk, took second on Montero's sacrifice and an out later, moved to third on a passed ball. Souza drove him home with a ground single to right before Kea fanned to end the frame.
