Boise Hawks end two-game losing streak
BOISE, Idaho - Trey Martin and Marco Hernandez combined to drive in seven runs, as the Boise Hawks ended a two-game losing streak with a 9-3 victory over the Vancouver Canadians at Memorial Stadium.
Martin hit a long three-run homer in the second inning to give Boise a 4-0 lead, with Hernandez adding an RBI double in the frame to push the lead to 5-0. The Canadians would cut into the lead in the fourth, as Jorge Flores hit a solo homer and Jordan Leyland doubled in a run, then load the bases in the fifth - but Pete Levitt got Balbino Fuenmayor to hit a come-backer to the mound to end the inning.
Boise would put the game away in the sixth, as Martin tripled home a run, Hernandez doubled home two more, and Stephen Bruno blooped an RBI single to right.
Levitt picked up his first win of the season, tossing one and two-thirds innings of shutout relief. Martin went 2-for-4 with four RBI, Hernandez went 2-for-4 with three RBI, with Gioskar Amaya and Rock Shoulders each logging two hits.
Ben White took the loss for Vancouver, allowing six runs on seven hits in five-plus innings. Leyland and Tucker Frawley had the lone two-hit games for the C's.
The rubber game of the series is tomorrow night at 7:15 p.m. - as Felix Pena meets Taylor Cole.
