whole season has been difficult for the Boise Hawks, who find themselves down in the Northwest League basement.

But that’s OK! It’s rookie ball. Developmental leagues. Player development and all that.


The last week (1-7): The Hawks have only won one game since their All Star Break early last week, so the second half of the Pioneer League has been a struggle very early up in Boise.

In the seven straight losses coming out of the break (before Thursday night’s victory, a shutout), the Hawks had allowed 47 runs in those seven games, so they aren’t pitching well — and their hitters haven’t been up to the task in games were pitchers do show up (as evidence by 3-2, 2-1, and 4-3 losses during that skid, too).

No offense to the Hawks, but they are playing for nothing though, so it may not matter much; they are 4-11 in the second half already, and 18-35 overall, both marks by far the worst records in the Northwest League.
