Hawks hitters lead the way as Boise wins sixth straight


KEIZER, Ore. — Six Hawks delivered at least one RBI and two hit home runs as Boise defeated the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 10-5 on Tuesday night. The 10 runs were a season high. David Bote had a two-run home run in the fifth inning, and Jacob Rogers hit a two-run homer in the ninth. It was the Hawks' second straight win over the Volcanoes, who had won eight games in a row coming into the series.

Orbandy Rodriguez (1-2) got the win after pitching two innings of relief. The Hawks' six-game win streak is the team's longest since July 2008. Boise remains in Oregon for one more game before returning for a five-game homestand that begins on the Fourth of July.
