Third baseman DJ LeMahieu was 2 for 5. DH Ryan Flaherty was 2 for 4 with a run scored.

Michael Brenly extended his hitting streak to 17 games by going 1 for 3 with a walk. Brenly scored twice and stole a base. So I'm not sure if Bob is coming back to the broadcast booth on Monday.

Peoria Chiefs

Boise Hawks

The Boise Hawks lost a wild one, 12-11 to the Spokane Indians.

The names of the pitchers in this game will be withheld to protect the guilty.

Right fielder Alvaro Ramirez had a big night. He was 4 for 6, including a three-run home run in the eighth inning. It was his third of the season. Ramirez scored twice and had the three RBI. He was on third base when the Hawks made the final out of the game. He also extended his hitting streak to 16 games.

DH Chris Huseby came to the plate five times and reached base all five times. Huseby was 3 for 3 with two triples, a walk and a hit by pitch. Huseby scored three times and had one RBI.

Two triples? Didn't you used to be a pitcher?

Second baseman Pierre LePage went 3 for 6 with a double, a run scored and two RBI. First baseman Richard Jones was 2 for 5 with an RBI.

Center fielder Matt Szczur is wasting his time on the gridiron. Tonight he was 2 for 5 with a double.
