Hawks split doubleheader against Canadians

Statesman staffAugust 12, 2013 

— Rony Rodriguez broke a 1-1 tie with an RBI double in the seventh inning, and the Boise Hawks defeated the Vancouver Canadians 3-1 in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday afternoon at Memorial Stadium. Vancouver (30-26) avoided a sweep in the five-game series with a 6-5 win in the nightcap.

Kris Bryant, who had a walkoff sacrifice fly Saturday night, drove in the first run Sunday in the same fashion for Boise (31-25). He went 2-for-3 in the afternoon and 3-for-4 in the evening, coming a homer short of the cycle and extending his hitting streak to an NWL season-high 15 games. Bryant now leads the squad with a .354 batting average.

Kevin Encarnacion and Trevor Gretzky also had three hits apiece in Game 2.
