BOISE-- The Boise Hawks rallied from a six-run deficit, scoring five in the sixth and four in the seventh, to come back and beat the Spokane Indians, 10-7, on Friday night. The win pulled the Hawks even with the Hillsboro Hops in first place of the Northwest League South Division with three games to play in the first half of the season. Should the Hawks win the first-half title, they will clinch a spot in the playoffs.
Going into the sixth inning, the Hawks found themselves in a 7-1 hole with just four more innings to score. That was when the home team erupted offensively, scoring five runs in the inning, sparked by a two-run double by Danny Canela.
The Hawks kept the momentum rolling in the seventh. With two outs, Justin Marra hit a seeing-eye grounder up the middle to plate the tying run. Chesny Young broke the tie with an RBI single to right field, and Jason Vosler put two insurance runs on the scoreboard with a triple to extend the lead to 10-7.
The lead was more than enough for Francisco Carrillo, who tossed three innings of shutout relief to pick up his first win of the year.
The Hawks remain at home on Saturday, as they host Salem-Keizer. First pitch is set for 7:15 p.m.
