VANCOUVER, B.C. The Hawks can clinch their first Northwest League title since 2004 with a victory over the Vancouver Canadians.
The teams play Game 2 of the championship series at 2:05 p.m. Sunday in Vancouver.
Boise won the first game of the best-of-three series 5-0 on Friday night at Memorial Stadium. Saturday was a travel day.
Weve got to go back on the road now, manager Gary Van Tol said after Fridays game. But they have to travel with us, and they came all the way (to Boise).
The Hawks are scheduled to start Jose Rosario (2-1, 5.48 ERA) in Sundays Game 2.
Theres still some work to be done, Van Tol said. But we did what we needed to do in Boise. Well get up to Vancouver and get plenty of rest for that Sunday afternoon game.
If the Canadians force a third game, it would be played at 8:05 p.m. Monday.
Vancouver has won the past two league titles, including last season, when it defeated Boise.
