Thanks to a clutch three-run home-run in the seventh inning from Buster Posey and two doubles from Marquez Smith, the Waikiki BeachBoys have claimed the 2008 Hawaii Winter Baseball Championship by defeating the West Oahu CaneFires 5-1.

The BeachBoys ended the year on a hot streak, winning the night before on a clutch home-run by Smith, defeating the Honolulu Sharks in the final regular season game.

Mitsuo Yoshikawa and Steven Richard combined for the win.  Yoshikawa went five innings, allowing four hits and walking two.  Richard pitched the final four innings and gave up one hit, striking out two.

It was an amazing game and an amazing season.  Props to everyone involved with Hawaii Winter Baseball for this great 2008 season.
