Boise Hawks rough up Spokane Indians in 11-2 romp


BOISE – Arismendy Alcantara had three hits and drove in three runs and Cameron Greathouse allowed just three hits in six shutout innings to lead the Boise Hawks to an 11-2 romp over the Spokane Indians in Northwest League baseball action on Wednesday.

The Hawks (13-21) jumped on Indians starter Ben Henry (4-4) for four runs in the second inning and never looked back.

Spokane (19-15) didn’t get on the scoreboard until Greathouse (3-2) left the game.

The Indians scored once in the seventh and once in the eighth off Hawks reliever Larry Suarez.

Michael Olt doubled to open the seventh, took third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly by Brett Nicholas. Alejandro Selen’s leadoff home run in the eighth accounted for the other run.

• The Indians led the Northwest League in attendance for a 12th straight season and also garnered the NWL Field of the Year Award.

The Indians drew 175,287 fans this season – an average of 4,737 per game.

NWL managers and coaches vote on the best field award. Indians head groundskeeper Adam Farrell has been nominated for the National Sports Turf Manager award.
