Yakima beats Boise
BOISE, Idaho - Capitalizing on five errors, the Yakima Bears evened up their weekend series with the Boise Hawks at a game apiece, winning 3-2, before 2,812 fans at Memorial Stadium.
The visitors broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh inning, as Raoul Torrez and Westley Moss scored on a Mike Freeman sacrifice fly, as Boise's Jesus Morelli lobbed the ball back to the infield - with the runners taking advantage of the gaffe. Both runs were unearned, as errors by Elliot Soto and Morelli prolonged the inning.
Yakima took advantage of a first inning error to take an early 1-0 lead on a Zach Walters RBI single, but Boise responded in the fourth, tying the score on a Richard Jones RBI single.
The Hawks would get within a run in the seventh on a Jeff Vigurs sacrifice fly, but Eury DeLaRosa came in from the pen and retired all six men he faced to notch the save.
Brad Wilson got the win, tossing six innings of four-hit ball - no batter between the two teams had more than one hit.
The final game of the regular-season for both teams is tomorrow night at 7:15 p.m., with Teo Gutierrez going for Yakima against either Juan Serrano or Tarlandus Mitchell for the Hawks.
