Dillon Maples (5-0) earned his team-high fifth win Thursday night, as the Boise Hawks beat the Eugene Emeralds 8-3 to complete a series sweep. Maples pitched five innings, striking out nine batters and allowing just one hit. He has five wins in just six starts since joining the Hawks in mid-July.
Carlos Penalver and Kevin Encarnacion were the only Hawks with multiple hits. Encarnacion added two RBI, as did catcher Lance Rymel.
Boise has won eight of its last nine games. The Hawks will begin a two-week road trip Friday in Tri-City.
