Seven-time state champion Punahou opened the Interscholastic League of Honolulu baseball season with a 4-2 win over rival ‘Iolani yesterday at Ala Wai Community Park.

Kainoa Harrison’s two-run single to right field highlighted Punahou’s three-run second inning.

The Raiders got on the board in the top half of the sixth as Jensen Park’s single brought home Dylan Goto. Park later scored on a Tanner Nishioka single. Punahou added an insurance run as Rick Nomura scored on a wild pitch.

The low-scoring game featured complete-game performances from both pitchers. Punahou’s Zachery Muenster scattered four hits while striking out nine. The Raiders’ Carlos Rodriguez struck out five, while allowing four runs (two unearned) on three hits.
