Boise Hawks fall in top prospect’s debut

The Boise Hawks’ offensive explosion Sunday couldn’t carry over into Monday as they fell 8-2 to the Spokane Indians (10-9).

Javier Palacios started for Boise (7-12) on the mound and surrendered three runs in the first two innings before retiring 10 of the next 11 batters he faced. He took the loss, giving up three runs on five hits while striking out eight.

Center fielder David Dahl, ranked Colorado’s best prospect and the No. 22 prospect in the minors by Baseball America, joined Boise on the road Monday. The 10th overall pick of the 2012 draft batted leadoff as he played his first game after lacerating his spleen May 28 with Double-A New Britain. He finished the night 1-for-3 with an RBI single in the fifth inning.

Designated hitter Hamlet Marte led Boise at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a double.

HAWKS’ DAZA HONORED: Boise right fielder Yonathan Daza was named the Northwest League’s Offensive Player of the Week on Monday. Daza entered Monday on a nine-game hitting streak and sporting a league-best .418 average.
