Boise Hawks record third straight shutout; Bryant debuts


EUGENE, Ore. — Three Boise pitchers combined on a seven-hitter as the Hawks beat the Eugene Emeralds 6-0 on Tuesday night for their 10th win in 11 games.

Dillon Maples (win, 1-0), Corbin Hoffner and Carlos Martinez-Pumarino pitched for Boise, which has allowed no runs and 13 hits in its past 27 innings.

Daniel Lockhart and Jacob Rogers each had two RBIs for the Hawks.

Earlier in the day, third baseman Kris Bryant, the Cubs’ second overall pick in last month’s draft, joined the roster. Bryant, who is the highest draft pick to ever play for the Hawks, was 0-for-5 with five strikeouts.

The previous top draft picks to play for the Hawks were Lou Montanez (2000 draft) in 2004 and Josh Vitters (2007) in 2007 and 2008.

The Hawks return home Friday.
