Game 4-Sublett Mystery?

The BeachBoys (0-4) are still in search of that elusive first win, as the Canefires came from behind to remain unbeaten.

Good news for Yankee second base prospect Damon Sublett, though, as he got his first hit of the season. After striking out in the first inning, Sublett rapped a lead-off double in the bottom of the fourth. However, he was promptly replaced by a pinch-runner. Not sure what the story was there, but I'll let you know if anything comes out.

Here's the recap.

Rematch today. Same time, same place.


Here's an interesting tidbit. Seems like Sublett's played in Hawaii before as a member of the prominent Wichita State Shockers. It would also appear that Sublett did some closing as well. Here's a recap from the Honolulu Star Bulletin (2/25/05):

Wichita State starter Mike Pelfrey allowed two hits through eight innings to lead the Shockers past Hawaii-Hilo 4-1 yesterday in college baseball at Simmons Field in Kona.

Pelfrey struck out six and gave way to Damon Sublett, who didn't allow a hit in the ninth.
