Slumps and Streaks: Hawks fall to third in the East, lose eight straight

It was about time.

After somewhat of a miraculous first half of the season, the
Boise Hawks have fallen to third place in the Northwest League East division
following eight straight losses by way Tri-City, Yakima and Vancouver.

On the season, the Hawks still sit at second place in the
NWL in batting, second only to the first-place Spokane Indians. Despite the
losing streak, however, Boise is only .021 off of their season average of .260.

Now that 41 games are in the books, the Hawks will have to
fight to maintain some composure for the first time in the 2010 season.

The key to their success: the little things. In those eight
games, five have been decided by one or two runs.

Tonight’s game will feature the Battle of the Caribbean when
Cuban defect, and Hawks pitcher, Juan Serrano, faces the Canadians’
left-hander, Anvioris Ramirez in the fourth game of the series.

No place I’d rather be than a Minor League ball game. Great pics and posts. I’ll be sure to check back soon. I was able to make to both a Peoria Chiefs and Iowa Cubs games this season. Lots of fun.
