Hawks come back to beat Emeralds, win third straight

Powered by a three-run sixth inning, the Boise Hawks came from behind to beat the Eugene Emeralds Saturday night, marking the team's first three-game winning streak of the season.

The win also moves Boise back to .500 on the season, improving the club to 8-8. Eugene lost its sixth consecutive game.

Trailing 5-3 in the sixth, a throwing error by the Ems' Henry Charles helped bring Carlos Penalver home from first base, cutting the Eugene lead down to 5-4.

Two batters later, Boise had runners on second and third. Jacob Rogers singled to center, bringing Daniel Lockhart and David Bote across to give Boise a 7-5 lead.

Corbin Hoffner tossed three and a third innings of one-hit relief to pick up the win, with Tyler Bremer striking out four in two innings to pick up his first save.

The series finale is tomorrow night at 7:15 p.m., with Carlos Martinez meeting Yimmi Brasoban.
