Former K-Triber Coaches Hawaii To Little League World Series Win

Hawaii has won the Little League
World Series, the fourth straight championship for the United

Hawaii head coach Timo Donahue played for the Kinston Indians back in the early '90's. Known as Tim Donahue when he played for the K-Tribe, he hit .283 in 34 games for Kinston in 1991. In 1992 he was a teammate of Manny Ramirez, hitting .225 in 66 games with two homers for Kinston.

Tanner Tokunaga and Iolana Akau homered Sunday to lead the
pint-sized players from Waipahu, Hawaii, in a 12-3 win over
Matamoros, Mexico, for the title.

Hawaii also took advantage of several Mexico miscues, scoring
runs off Mexico errors and a bases-loaded walk. Two other runs came
in on passed balls.

Caleb Duhay struck out seven in five-plus innings for the win.
Jesus Sauceda homered for Mexico, and Eduardo Rodriguez had a
two-run single.

A team from Hawaii last won a Little League title in 2005.
