Thanks to those who came to the park

Thumbnail image for Wagner3.jpgA great game by Bobby Wagner helped the Boise Hawks to their second straight win, a 5-4 decision over the Spokane Indians in a rare mid-week afternoon game at Memorial Stadium.

The crowd of 500-600 fans (paid attendance was 1,300+) saw Wagner rope a two-run triple in the first, then club his fifth home run, a two-run shot in the fifth, to give the Hawks a 5-2 lead.  They would need it, as a pair of errors in the eighth would allow the Indians to score a run, before Steve Grife slammed the door, getting the final five outs for his first save.

BIG FOOTBALL GAMES: A couple big upsets in college football – Central Washington topped D-II #1 Minnesota-Duluth 13-10, while Villanova upset Temple (sorry Andy Simon) 31-24…Boise State was sloppy at times, but the defense was very impressive in the 19-8 win over Oregon – with an ultra-poor sportsmanship showing by the Ducks after the game.  It was a whirlwind night for Spokane broadcaster Bob Castle, who hopped a plane to Spokane right after the game, in time to catch a charter to Abeliene, Texas, where he has to call the Whitworth-Hardin Simmons game on Saturday.

LOOKING AHEAD: Trey McNutt, Dae-Eun Rhee, and Jon Nagel will be the rotation to close out the season – as the Hawks look to finish with a flurry.
