Future Colorado Rockies: Boise Hawks July 18 Update

1 of 3

The Boise Hawks are in the midst of their first season as members of the Colorado Rockies’ affiliate tree, in the short-season A Northwest League.

After taking a week off of updating the Colorado Rockies’ minor league affiliates during the All Star break (and what a break it was!), we are back!

The Hawks are on a different schedule from the Rockies — most of the minor league affiliates are — so while the Rockies enjoyed four days off this week, the affiliates got no such love. Their all-star game will come later this season, since the short seasons start in the middle of June, and having a mid-July All Star Game would be, well, premature.

The last week (3-4): Hawks’ pitchers had a tough time this week, allowing 46 runs in their last seven games, but the club did win three of them (three of seven were on the road), so all things considered, it could’ve been a lot worse. After the week’s lowlight — an 11-1 loss to Everett — Boise resurrected themselves with a wild 10-inning game on Friday night, scoring four runs in the top of the tenth and winning 9-5 over Salem-Keizer.

The Hawks are now 10-19 on the season, unfortunately good (bad) enough for the worst record in the Northwest League after the first 30-ish games entering Saturday.
