The Hawks took down the Eugene Emeralds last night in Boise to open a three game series. Emeralds starter Eury Ramos gave up seven hits and seven runs in three innings of work to the Hawks who peppered the Em’s with 12 hits and 12 runs giving Eugene, who could only rack up two runs, a 10 run road rash. The two teams play again tonight with Fastino Carrera on the mound for Eugene against Boise’s Pearson McMahan.

Honorable Mention goes to Mia Collins who had 10 kills, 9 digs and a block last week’s win against Elmira.
