Victorino reacts to Boston Marathon tragedy on Twitter

April 16, 2013 - Robert Collias
Maui-born Shane Victorino reacted to Boston Marathon tragedy on his Twitter account earlier today.

Five hours ago, he said this: "Boston is a tough, resilient town and will prevail over this saddening tragedy! #PrayForBoston"

Four hours before that he said: "Very sad to hear the news coming out of Boston. Horrific. My thoughts and prayers to all those involved"

Victorino was 0-for-4 with an RBI in the Boston Red Sox' 3-2 win over Tampa Bay in a game that finished an hour before the bomb blasts, 1 1/2 miles away at Fenway Park.

Lila Fujimoto has this breaking story from a Maui girl who was at the finish line watching her father run the race. Gripping stuff.

Our website has been working overtime to keep up with tens of thousands of hits all day on this developing story.

Lila also has the lowdown on all of the Maui runners in the race for Tuesday's paper — worth the read, for sure.
