Hawks jump on AquaSox, cruise to 7-3 win

EVERETT — The Boise Hawks scored five runs in the first two innings, then coasted to a 7-3 victory over the Everett AquaSox on Thursday night at Everett Memorial Stadium.

The Hawks were all over Everett starting pitcher Lukas Schiraldi in the early going. Danny Canela crushed a two-run home run to right in the first. Then Boise rallied for three more in the second, with Charlie White’s RBI triple and a bases-loaded walk contributing to the damage.

Everett chipped away at Boise’s lead with single runs in the second, third and fourth innings, but Justin Mara’s mammoth two-run home run in the eighth put the game out of reach for the Sox.

Four pitchers combined on a six-hitter for Boise (1-1 second half, 23-17 overall), striking out a Hawks season high 13 batters. Relievers Sam Wilson and Francisco Carrillo closed out the game with four hitless innings, fanning eight to prevent any hint of a comeback.

Corey Simpson hit his team-leading sixth homer to lead Everett (1-1, 12-28). Leoncio Munoz, who relieved Schiraldi in the second, did everything he could to keep the Sox in the game, throwing 4 2/3 scoreless innings and striking out six, but the hole proved too deep for Everett.

Short hops
