A three-run homer from Boise's Kyle Schwarber proved to be the difference Friday as the Tri-City Dust Devils feel on the road 4-2 to the Hawks on opening night. The Dust Devils scored both of their runs in the top of the seventh inning, which included doubles from both Trevor Story and Dillon Thomas. Schwarber's home run in the bottom of the seventh erased the Dust Devils brief lead and kept the advantage with Boise for the rest of the game.
