Boise Hawks strike early, beat Vancouver for fifth win in six games

No. 8 hitter Wilkyns Jimenez homered and drove in three runs, No. 9 hitter Jensen Park went 3-for-5 and Boise scored 10 runs in the first three innings en route to a 12-8 victory over Vancouver late Tuesday night at Nat Bailey Stadium.

Marcos Derkes hit a two-run single to cap a four-run second inning, and Nate Causey followed suit with the bases loaded to spark a five-run third. Jimenez responded with a two-run double, then scored on a Scott Burcham single to give Boise a 10-3 lead. After the Hawks surrendered five fourth-inning runs, Jimenez provided insurance with a leadoff homer in the fifth.

Boise tied a season-high with five errors, but nine Hawks batters had at least one hit. Derkes, Brian Mundell, Luis Castro, Causey and Jimenez had two apiece. Craig Schlitter earned the win after pitching the sixth and seventh innings, striking out five of the seven batters he faced against one walk. The fourth of the five-game series is Wednesday night.
