Thursday Pebble Report: Terrin Vavra hits walk off grand slam for Boise

New, 5 comments

In a slow day for the minor league system, Boise made sure the excitement continued. Terrin Vavra swatted a walk off grand slam for the Hawks, his first home run of the season, to propel them to a 6-5 victory over the Vancouver Canadians. Vavra had all six RBI in the victory, hitting an RBI single and double earlier in the contest. Boise entered the ninth down 5-2 but two singles and a walk loaded the bases before Vavra sent everyone home happy with a line drive gland slam over the center field wall.

The thrilling comeback lifted Boise to a 15-11 record on the season.

In other action, Grand Junction rode 10 hits to a 7-2 victory and a return to .500 and Lancaster used strong pitching to settle in for another victory over Rancho Cucamonga. Other news and notes from the affiliates are below:
