EVERETT — Kennard McDowell hit a two-run single in the top of the 10th inning to lead the Boise Hawks to a 7-6 win over the Everett AquaSox on Sunday at Everett memorial Stadium.
The single by McDowell scored Greg Jones and LeeMarcus Boyd.
In the bottom of the inning, Everett scored on a single by Josh Stowers that brought home Charlie McConnell. However, PJ Poulin got Cal Raleigh to fly out with a runner on second to end the game for his sixth save of the season.
The Hawks tied the game 5-5 in the ninth when LJ Hatch hit an RBI triple, driving in Luke Morgan.
Hawks reliever Peyton Gray (4-0) went one scoreless inning, allowing one hit while striking out two to get the win. Nolan Hoffman (0-2) went two innings, allowing three runs and four hits for the AquaSox. He also struck out two and walked one.
Down by three in the seventh, Everett rallied for four runs. Ryan Ramiz led off the inning with a single, followed by a walk to Stowers. After Bobby Honeyman singled to load the bases, Cal Raleigh doubled home Ramiz and Stowers. Connor Kopach followed with a run-scoring single and Nick Rodriguez plated Kopach with a double.
Morgan doubled and singled three times, scoring two runs in the win. Boyd doubled and singled twice, scoring two runs.
Boise took advantage of some erratic Everett pitching, drawing a season-high eight walks in its victory.
Stranding 14 men on base, the AquaSox did not take advantage of some good scoring chances in the loss. Nick Rodriguez doubled twice and singled twice for the AquaSox. Stowers doubled and singled, scoring a run and also driving one home.
The game was Everett’s last before the break. The Northwest League All-Star game is Tuesday before the AquaSox open a five-game series with Eugene at home on Thursday.
