Kevin Padlo had an RBI double to extend his hitting streak to 11 games, and the Hawks’ five-run fifth inning propelled them to a 6-4 victory over the Dust Devils late Sunday at Gesa Stadium. It was Boise’s second win in 12 games.
Trailing 3-0 in the fifth, Boise (19-37, 5-13 NWL second half) got on the board when Marcos Derkes scored on an error. Wesley Jones came home on a fielder’s choice, and Padlo’s double plated Carlos Herrera to tie the game. Padlo scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error, and Hamlet Marte capped the rally with an RBI single to score Brian Mundell.
The Hawks were error-free after committing five in Saturday’s loss. Logan Cozart earned the win after entering in relief in the second inning and yielding one run on two hits in 22/3 innings. Cristian Quintin induced five outs for his fourth save.
Boise returns home at 7:15 p.m. Monday for a three-game series against Eugene at Memorial Stadium. That precedes the Hawks’ 11-game road trip that coincides with the Western Idaho Fair.

SATURDAY’S LATE GAME
Tri-City scored nine unanswered runs, and the Hawks tied a season high with five errors in an 11-4 loss. Kevin Padlo hit a three-run home run to give the Hawks a 4-2 lead in the third inning, but Tri-City took the lead with two runs in the fourth and tacked on three apiece in the fifth and seventh, all off Boise relievers. Brian Mundell drove in the Hawks’ other run. Cesar Villarroel took the loss after starting pitcher Ryan McCormick threw three innings and left with a one-run lead.
