Errors doom Ogden Raptors in lopsided loss to Boise Hawks

By Brett Hein - Standard-Examiner | Jun 13, 2023

The Ogden Raptors had more hits than the Boise Hawks on Tuesday to open a three-game series at Boise's Memorial Stadium.

The problem for Ogden was that it committed four errors in the field and surrendered four home runs to Boise batters.

So even a string of hits in the top of the ninth wasn't enough to make it a game and the Hawks defeated the Raptors 9-3.

Boise (11-8) totaled 11 hits in the contest. Anthony Walters and Kole Kaler homered off Ogden starter Mitchell Stone for an early 3-0 lead.

Reese Alexiades, who hit 2 for 4 in the game, doubled home Dakota Conners in the fourth to get the Raptors (10-9) on the board, but that's as close as it got.

The Hawks tagged Ogden reliever Quinn Waterhouse for five runs in the sixth, all unearned, after two infield errors with two outs scored a pair of Boise runs, followed by catcher Sean Skelly launching a three-run homer to left.

Ronnie Allen Jr. added a solo shot against Marshall Shill in the seventh to put Boise up 9-1.

With two outs in the ninth, the Raptors tallied hits 11, 12 and 13 with a Coleton Horner single, a double from Damian Henderson, and a two-run double from Cam Phelts for the final tally. Ogden was 1 of 13 with runners in scoring position before Phelts tacked on the pair with his two-bagger.

The two teams play again at 7:05 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday to finish the series.
