Boise 3 Yakima 2

Posted: Updated:

BOISE, Idaho - The Yakima Bears (5-5) struck for the game's first runs in the top of the tenth inning on a pinch-hit, two-run double off the bat of Jorge Corniel, only to see the lead evaporate as the Boise Hawks (3-7) rallied for three runs in the bottom half to beat the Bears in walk-off fashion 3-2 at Memorial Stadium Monday night.

The two clubs combined for 18 total innings pitched of scoreless ball before the floodgates opened in the tenth, Ryan Sontag (1-0) earned the win for the Hawks while Brian Budrow (0-1) took the loss.

Starting pitcher Brad Gemberling tossed four solid innings of shutout ball, allowing just three hits while striking out two.

Short stop Brent Greer went 2-for-3 with a run scored. Tyson Van Winkle and Clayton Conner stole their third and second bases of the season, respectively.

With the loss, the Bears are now 0-2 in extra-inning games, having dropped the Father's Day affair to Spokane in ten innings on a walk-off suicide squeeze play.

Yakima and Boise are back at it Tuesday for the series finale at Memorial Stadium at 5:30 PDT, with right hander Rafael Quezada (0-2, 5.63 ERA) taking on right hander Jon Nagel (0-0, 1.50 ERA).
