The Boise Hawks began an eight-game homestand with a 5-1 win over the Vancouver Canadians on Wednesday night.
Trey Martin launched a go-ahead two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to give the Hawks the lead for good.
Tied 1-1 in the fifth, Marco Hernandez led off the frame with a single and with two outs, Martin crushed the first pitch he saw from Javier Avendano deep over the left field wall for his first professional home run and a two-run lead.
It was the second home run of the night for Boise, which also got a solo shot from Rock Shoulders in the third inning, the Hawks first run of the game.
Starter Jose Arias and three relievers limited Vancouver to seven singles and a two-out solo homer from Daniel Arcila in the fourth.
The Hawks played Wednesdays game without outfielder Shawon Dunston Jr. and catcher Chadd Krist.
Dunston Jr. was sent down to Mesa of the Arizona Summer League after batting .185 in 19 games with the Hawks.
He was just struggling a little, Hawks manager Mark Johnson said of the 2011 draft pick who the Cubs gave a $1.275 million signing bonus in August. But hes only 19. Hell be fine. Its just a matter of keeping his feet underneath him and slowing down the game a little bit.
Krist, meanwhile, was promoted to Low-A Peoria.
Were going to miss him, Johnson said of Krist, who batted .328 in 16 games with the Hawks.
