The Boise Hawks took control early and converted their scoring opportunities on the way to an 8-4 win over the Ogden Raptors on Saturday night in Boise.

The Raptors (6-5) outhit the Hawks (8-3) by a 14-9 margin and Ogden pitchers struck out 14 Boise batters, but the visitors left 14 runners on base to the home team’s seven.

Boise jumped on Ogden starter Chase Stratton early. Raymond Gil hit a solo homer in the first, then the Hawks took a 4-0 lead after two on a bases-loaded walk and two sacrifice fly outs.

It never got closer than 4-2 after that. Raptors Landen Barns and Rafael Narea singled in runs in the fourth and the sixth for that margin, but Boise answered by tagging Stratton with three more runs in the sixth, led by a Tyler Jorgensen two-RBI double.

Reese Alexiades drove in an Ogden run in the seventh and Barns hit a solo homer in the ninth.

Stratton struck out nine, walked three and gave up seven runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings for the loss. Marshall Shill and Jon Rice allowed three hits and one run in the final 2 2/3, striking out five and walking two.

For Ogden, Narea hit 4 for 5, and Barns and Alexiades were each 3 for 5.

Kole Kaler and Anthony Walters each had two hits for Boise and were the only multi-hit batters for the home team. Starter Ryley Widell got the win, allowing two runs on eight hits over six innings, striking out nine and walking one.

The series concludes at 1:05 p.m. Sunday.
