BOISE - In the midst of their worst stretch of the summer, the Boise Hawks (17-20) responded with their best offense performance in over a decade. Trailing Spokane (20-17) 2-1 in the bottom of the fifth, the Hawks plated nine runs in the inning - their most in over 10 years - thanks in large part to a Paul Hoilman's grand slam. Boise outfielder Blair Springfield and second baseman Willson Contreras both chipped in with their best showings of the summer as well. Springfield connected for his first homerun of the season, while Contreras added a triple and three RBI. The Hawks and Indians will be in action again tomorrow at 7:15 pm. NOTE: Third-round draft pick Zeke DeVoss missed his second straight game with a leg injury. The Hawks said DeVoss made a trip to the doctor, but is not expected to miss much time.
