Shortstop Peter Van Gansen’s home run sparked the Dust Devils’ three-run first inning as they topped the Hawks 5-2 on Monday night at Memorial Stadium to win three-of-five games in the season-opening series.

Right fielder Yonathan Daza led the Hawks, going 3-for-4 at the plate, and first baseman Brian Mundell added two hits.

Boise begins a three-game series at Eugene on Tuesday.
