Extra bases

• Class A Boise reached the playoffs for the second straight season with an 8-6 win Saturday over Vancouver, clinching the second-half title in the Northwest League's East Division. Boise will face Yakima, the division's first-half winner, in the first game of the playoffs on Sept. 3.

Jeimer Candelario had three hits and three RBIs in Saturday's win and Wilson Contreras drove in two runs.

Boise plays Vancouver on Sunday before closing the regular season with a five-game homestand against Everett that begins Tuesday.

• Reliever Shawn Camp leads the Majors with 64 games pitched this season and is on pace for 83 relief appearances, a number that would top his career-high 75 relief outings for the Rays in 2006. That would be one game shy of the Cubs franchise record of 84 games pitched, done by Ted Abernathy (1965), Dick Tidrow (1980) and Bob Howry (2006).

• Catcher Blake Lalli cleared waivers and accepted his assignment to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday. Infielder Nate Samson was placed on the disabled list with a right ankle sprain, retroactive to Aug. 24, to make room. Lalli was designated for assignment on Thursday. He was hitting .257 in 91 games.
