8/26 Boise is playoff bound
Class A Boise is headed to the playoffs for the second straight season. The Hawks’ 8-6 win over Vancouver on Saturday plus Everett’s 6-3 win over Yakima gave Boise the second half title in the Northwest League’s East Division. Boise will face Yakima, the division’s first half winner, in the first game of the playoffs on Sept. 3. Jeimer Candelario drove in three runs in Saturday’s win. Boise plays Vancouver on Sunday before closing the regular season with a five-game homestand against Everett that begins Tuesday.
