Hirayama delivered in much-needed win for Trojans; Ho powering Buffanblu with prolific junior season




Kai Hirayama

Mililani baseball  •   #7    

Kai Hirayama delivered when his team needed it most. 

The Mililani junior pitcher kept Aiea's hot bats quiet in a much-needed 11-2 win for the Trojans Saturday afternoon. Hirayama, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound lefty struck out 10 Na Alii and scattered five hits over his six innings of work. He allowed two runs, one of them unearned, to keep his team in the mix for a top-two finish in the Oahu Interscholastic Association Division I West standings. 

"This year every win is huge," said Mililani coach Mark Hirayama (no relation).

The Trojans were coming off of a 4-3 loss to unranked Leilehua just three days prior to their matchup against then-No. 4 Aiea. Hirayama's squad avenged a 12-2 defeat at the hands of Na Alii back on March 20. 

Mililani (7-3) sits in second place, one game ahead of third-place Campbell (6-4). Both teams are looking up to division-leader Aiea (9-2). Hirayama is hopeful the Mules can upset first-place Na Alii when they face off Wednesday afternoon. 

Along with a Leilehua win, the Trojans will have to beat both Nanakuli (4-6) Wednesday and Waipahu (2-8) Saturday. That would leave both teams with identical 9-3 records. The Trojans and Na Alii split their season series, but Mililani's two wins over third-place Campbell would give them the tiebreaker over Aiea for the West's top seed in the upcoming 12-team OIA tournament. 

"Every game anybody can beat anybody, so with a little bit of help from Leilehua on Wednesday and us taking care of what we need to take care of, there's a hope of us finishing first," Mark Hirayama said. 

The top two teams from both the East and West will have a first-round bye. The Trojans remain in strong contention for one of those coveted byes, thanks in large part to Kai Hirayama's performance Saturday – by far his best of the season. 

It was just Hirayama's second start and third pitching appearance this spring. The Second Team All-Hawaii pitcher from a year ago suffered an untimely injury late in the preseason that gave him a late start to the regular season. 

"Kai was hurt for most of the season. He pulled his hamstring right before league started and that kind of threw him off and he's just recently came back," Mark Hirayama said. 

The longtime Trojans' coach credited Hirayama for persevering through the setback. 

"He's been pretty positive. I know inside it's probably eating him up because he wants to be out there, but at the same time, he knows that although he's not a captain, he's a team leader and he wants to make sure that everybody around him is accountable. One nice thing about our team is we don't have ‘I' guys. Everybody is gonna play for each other and we're gonna be able to compete at the highest level because of it," Mark Hirayama said. 

Although Kai Hirayama racked up 10 strikeouts Saturday, his coach noted that the southpaw is more crafty than overpowering. In his bag of tools is a fastball, breaking ball and, as Mark Hirayama describes, an under-appreciated change-up. 

"I keep telling him his best pitch is the change-up. If he can throw his change-up, it'll make his fastball even better. Against Aiea the change-up was really good and a couple times (batters) weren't even close," he said. "Everybody is into (velocity), but you gotta be able to pitch; if you got command, you can compete."

Kai Hirayama was certainly in command Saturday, as he did not issue a single walk. Of the 25 total batters he faced, Hirayama got to a three-ball count only six times. 

"He got ahead of hitters and then was able to mix in other pitches; He kept them off balance pretty well. They had a double that was kind of a flare, (but) nothing was really hit hard. I think the hits that they did get, in talking with him, were just mistakes that he made as far as location and he just didn't hit his spots. If he's hitting his spots, he's gonna be pretty effective," Mark Hirayama said. 

In the second inning, Hirayama ran into a bit of trouble. He hit the leadoff batter with a pitch, then allowed a single to put two runners on base. However, he retired the next three batters – the final two on strikeouts swinging – to get out of the jam. 

"Sometimes he gets a little excited and he overthrows a little bit and that's where he gets in trouble, so as long as he stays in the moment and understands what he has to offer as a pitcher but the situations that did get a little interesting for us were situations where we just missed our spots, so it's just about getting better at making sure every pitch is a quality pitch," Mark Hirayama said. 

The lefty, who batted ninth in the lineup Saturday, helped his own cause when he led off the top of the sixth inning with a home run to right field that tied the score at 1. The Trojans went on to send 14 batters to the plate and scored 10 more runs in the frame. 

Mark Hirayama noted that Kai Hirayama isn't always penciled into the batting order on days that he is the scheduled starting pitcher. 

"Not all the time. He's one of our more athletic guys and our outfield is probably not as strong offensively and he's been swinging the bat well in practice and that's a big thing as far as your playing time for us is gonna be earned in practice and not in games. He's been doing a good job in practice as far as shortening up and putting a good swing on the ball, so sometimes you gotta roll the dice and take a chance," coach Hirayama said. 

Mark Hirayama joked that with each TV game that Kai appears in, he is asked if the two after father and son. 

"That's a frequent question," Mark Hirayama laughed. Kidding aside, however, he noted that Kai's late father, Kyle, was quite the ballplayer in his own day. 

"He comes from a good pedigree. His dad was a good ball player at Pearl City and beyond and his brother (Hunter) is at Saint Mary's, so he brings a lot to the table as far as his fire and his attitude to go out and compete," Mark Hirayama said. 

He went on, "I think Kai's biggest attribute is just his attitude on the mound. I mean, he wants the ball, he's gonna compete, he's not gonna shy away from the big situation. His competitiveness is where he doesn't know anything less than a hundred percent, so I think for us, in any big game, if Kai's available, he'd be the guy and we're gonna ride his energy. When he's on the mound, we're gonna play a little bit different knowing he's gonna compete and that goes for any of our pitchers, but I think Kai really sets the tone for that and everybody is ready to go when he's on the mound."

Hirayama, an All-OIA West First Team pick a year ago, has a 2-1 record with a 0.47 earned run average. He has allowed three runs (one earned) on nine hits with 17 strikeouts against three walks in 15 innings pitched this season.

Taryn Ho

Punahou softball  •   #2  INF  Junior

Don't let her size fool you. Taryn Ho has some serious power in her bat. 

Ho, a Punahou junior infielder, has put on an impressive display of power all season, but she took it to another level over the course of three games last week. The 5-foot-3 Ho totaled seven hits in 11 at-bats (.636 batting average) with four home runs and six runs batted in to help the Buffanblu go 2-1 on the week. 

The third-year starter and co-captain leads Punahou in every major offensive category, including hits (25), RBI (20), runs scored (26), doubles (8) and home runs (8). Ho trails only Kamehameha's University of Georgia-bound slugger Mua Williams for the ILH lead in hits. She ranks fifth in RBI despite batting leadoff and fourth in batting average. Ho is the ILH leader in runs scored. 

Punahou coach David Eldredge said that Ho's progression is reflected by the numbers over the years. As a freshman, Ho hit .306 with 11 hits, seven RBI and eight runs scored. Last year, she upped her batting average to .481 and finished as the team leader in hits (26), doubles (7) and runs scored (27). 

"She had a decent freshman year and she had a good year last year, but this year she's our number one," Eldredge stated. "I mean, for us to be able to compete with Kamehameha and Maryknoll, who have Mua Williams and (University of Arizona-bound) Jenna Sniffen (respectively), Taryn's our girl and she's gonna have to match what those guys do to keep us close and fortunately so far she's really done that and that's what's helped us stay right there with them at the top of the standings."

After a 1-2 start to the ILH season, the Buffanblu reeled off seven wins in eight games, including an 8-2 victory over No. 8 Iolani last Tuesday and a 14-7 win over then-No. 3 Maryknoll two days later. 

Against the Raiders, Ho went 2 for 4 at the plate, including an RBI-single in her second at-bat that tied the score at 1. She also reached on an error in her third plate appearance, registered a stolen base and scored three times in the win. 

In Wednesday's game against the Spartans, Ho slugged a staggering three home runs with five RBI and four runs scored. After she flied out in her first at-bat, Ho hit a solo homer in the bottom of the second that gave her team a 4-0 lead. An inning later, she swatted a three-run dinger to stretch it to a 9-0 cushion. Ho followed that up by leading off the bottom of the fifth with another solo dinger that made the score 10-5. For good measure, Ho drew a four-pitch walk after she was pitched around in the sixth inning, but freshman Kahiau Aina brought her home with a two-run homer of her own. 

"It wasn't an intentional walk. I think it was pitching very carefully to her and just missing, but they didn't put her on intentionally. With three home runs right before that, you're not gonna serve one up, you're gonna try to nip a corner," Eldredge described. 

Although the Buffanblu were dealt an 11-1 loss to Kamehameha in six innings Saturday, Ho continued her hot hitting with a 2 for 3 day at the plate, including her team-leading eighth home run on a solo shot in the top of the third inning. 

"When you're talking about your top player like that, you're always expecting them to pair hits or get their share of hits, you expect them to be the RBI person, or get-on-base person and she got two or three hits in every game (last week) and then on top of that, the home runs, so I mean, she did everything offensively we expected her to do and even defensively, she made a back-handed play deep in the hole against Maryknoll and threw the girl out and it was a big-time play. She's got all the tools and she's showing it and she's been showing it throughout the season, so this week was very typical of our expectations of what Taryn can do," Eldredge said. 

Ho earned All-ILH Honorable Mention as a freshman two years ago. As a sophomore in 2023, she received First Team All-ILH recognition and All-Hawaii Honorable Mention. So far this spring, Ho is keeping pace with some of the state's top players, including Sniffen and Williams, both First Team All-Hawaii picks a year ago. Williams is the reigning All-Hawaii Position Player of the Year in Division I. 

"I think we were asking Taryn to match the best. We were asking her to be our Mua and our Jenna and that's a tough call because those girls are so good, but she has actually risen to those expectations and she's really done a great job putting herself among the best in the state right here," Eldredge said. 

Ho has hit safely in 10 of 12 games this season, including eight multi-hit games. Earlier in the year, she recorded a 4-for-4 game in a win over Iolani in which she smacked two homers, had one double, drove in six runs and scored five times. A few weeks later, in a victory over Mid-Pacific, Ho batted 4 for 5 and finished a single shy of the cycle. She belted two doubles, one triple and a home run, drove in two runs and scored four times. 

"We set high expectations for our kids, always try to extend them and say, ‘this is who we think you can be,' or ‘this is who we think you are,' so our expectations are always set at a higher level and it's really exciting when you see them play up to what you expected, or in a few cases, they exceeded those expectations and that's the kind of year Taryn is having. The best part is we get her back for another year, so it'll be even more fun, I'm sure, to watch her again next year," Eldredge said. 

Eldredge pointed to Ho's maturation process and the work that she puts in outside of high school softball as key reasons for her power surge this year. 

"I think experience – she spends a lot of time in the mainland in the summer going to a lot of tournaments and showcases so she's seen a lot of high quality pitching – so I just think she's becoming more and more comfortable in the box and every pitcher is something she's probably already seen before, so I think that confidence and experience is increasing and now she's becoming a tougher hitter to get out," Eldredge expressed.

It's not just with a bat in her hands that Ho is effective. After holding down second base a year ago, Ho made the move to shortstop as a junior, but, as Eldredge pointed out, she can basically play anywhere on the infield. 

"She's very athletic and she's a complete player. You talk about the tools of the game – she can run, she can throw, she fields well and she hits and as you can see this year, she also hits with power," Eldrege said. 

When she was younger, Ho was also a standout soccer and volleyball player, Eldredge noted. 

"You talk to some of her youth coaches and they say that she was a great soccer player and a great volleyball player. She's just a good athlete, but she slowly started to dwindle away from putting time into those sports to focus on softball and it's obviously now paying off. She's dedicated, she loves the game, she definitely puts in the work and they make the investment in the offseason to get her to places where she can see higher competition and level of play, so she's really preparing herself to be a big-time college softball player," Eldredge said of Ho, who is verbally committed to the University of Oregon. 

Ho shares co-captain duties with senior Shayla Yamashita. Eldredge described Ho's leadership style in the following way: "It's not really a ‘rah-rah' type of leadership. I think most of it is by example," he said. 

"She'll be the first one in line and leading the charge on conditioning and I think it's more just by example. People see how she prepares herself for the game and her expectations in a game and it raises the level of everybody around her because of the way she gets herself ready to play and the kind of attention she puts into her game," Eldredge added. 

Punahou completed the ILH regular season with an 8-4 record. 

Ho and the Buffanblu are seeded third in the league's Division I double-elimination tournament. They will play either Kamehameha or Maryknoll to open the postseason Saturday at a site to be determined. 

The top two teams out of the ILH will qualify for next month's DataHouse/HHSAA State Championships, which runs May 14-17 at Rainbow Wahine Softball Stadium on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus.
