The Boise Hawks had a season-high 14 hits Sunday, but couldn't convert a bases-loaded, no-out opportunity in the ninth inning of an 8-6 loss to the Spokane Indians on the road. Boise (4-6) trailed 7-1 before a Jacob Rogers RBI single pulled the visitors within two. A Yasiel Balaguert walk loaded the bases, but Spokane closer Justin Sprenger entered and struck out pinch-hitter Jose Dore, then forced Danny Lochkart to ground into a double play. Rogers and Kevin Encarnacion each went 3-for-5. The five-game series with the Indians (4-6) ends Monday night.
SATURDAY'S LATE GAME: Spokane completed a doubleheader sweep with a 4-3 victory in the second game. Shawon Dunston Jr.'s two-run homer and Kevin Encarnacion's solo shot provided Boise's scoring.
