A true get-away day

cmu.gifDan Taylor did not give the Boise Hawks much of a chance at a three-game sweep and a .500 road trip, as the Central Michigan product scattered just two hits in seven innings, striking out ten, as Yakima rolled to a 5-0 victory in the series finale tonight.

The Hawks managed singles from D.J. Fitzgerald and Logan Watkins – but looked like a team ready to get home after being gone for eight days, as the final 15 men were set down in order – six on first-pitch swings.

Boise did see a pair of good outings on the mound by Josh Lansford and Danny Keefe, who combined to throw 4.1 innings of scoreless relief – as Keefe retired seven of the eight men he faced.

LOOKING AHEAD: The Hawks open up a nine-day, eight-game homestand starting with the Everett Aquasox – a team that had to endure a rain delay, then rain-shortened game against Eugene tonight.  Andres Esquibel, who blanked Boise on three hits last Thursday, will face the Hawks in the series opener.  Saturday will be a fun night, as it is 2009 Baseball Card give-away night – who knows which player may be the next big thing.
