Winchester, Tokunaga star as Hawai‘i beats Florida 10-2 at LLWS

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Pikai Winchester drove in three runs and Waipahu, Hawai‘i, overcame an early two-run deficit to beat Tampa, Fla., 10-2 last night at the Little League World Series.

Down 2-0, Winchester had an RBI single to start the scoring in a four-run third inning for undefeated Hawai‘i (2-0). He added a two-run double in the fourth.

Tanner Tokunaga sealed the game with a grand slam to center in the fifth.

Reliever Trevor Ling settled Hawai‘i down on the mound after Florida (1-1) plated two runs in the first inning. Ryan McCullers and Michael McGuire both scored that inning on wild pitches by Hawai‘i starter Khade Paris.

Wyatt Reid and Danny Lastra each added two hits for Florida.

A win today over South Dakota would clinch a berth in the U.S. semifinals for Hawai‘i.
