Boise Hawks beat Hillsboro Hops for second straight night

Nate Causey hit two run-scoring, ground-rule doubles, and Ryan McCormick had seven strikeouts in relief as Boise beat Hillsboro 7-1 on Friday at Ron Tonkin Field. The Hawks also beat the Hops 5-3 to open the series Thursday.

Nate Causey opened the scoring for the Hawks (22-39, 8-15 NWL second half) in the second inning with a two-run double that went out of play. Four batters later, Marcos Derkes plated two more runs with a triple and a 4-0 lead. Jensen Park and Brian Mundell later scored on wild pitches, and Causey drove in another run on another ground-rule double in the eighth to give the Hawks a 7-0 advantage.

McCormick earned his first win of the season after entering in the fourth inning. He allowed one run on three hits in five innings and walked two.

The teams complete their three-game series at 6:03 p.m. Saturday.
