Aquasox Finish Sweep of Indians

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, WA – It's the same recipe that has plagued the Indians in every game this season: failure to overcome an early deficit. On Sunday, the Everett Aquasox scored first and the Indians could never comeback as the Aquasox completed a sweep of Spokane with a 4-3 win.

The Aquasox took a 3-0 lead in the 6th inning, when the Indians posted two runs in the bottom half of the sixth. Everett scored in the 7th followed by a Spokane run in the bottom half of the 7th. All that scoring made it a 4-3 game, but that's as close as the Indians would get.

The Indians now head north of the border to take on Vancouver for three games.

Press Release from the Spokane Indians:

Spokane, WA - Pitcher Collin Wiles showed signs of impressiveness in his Spokane debut, but the Indians failed to capitalize on four Everett errors, losing 4-3 to the AquaSox in front of 4,783 fans for the Father's Day Game & Prostate Cancer Awareness presented by Reliable Parts, The Big 99.9 Coyote Country, KXLY Newsradio 920, and North Idaho Wellness.

With the AquaSox leading 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth, the Indians threatened for the second night in a row. With one out, Christopher Garia was nearly picked off stealing second, but an error by Everett's Reggie Lawson advanced Garia all the way to third. Spokane was unable to capitalize on the opportunity, as both Hirotoshi Onaka and Cam Schiller grounded out to end the rally.

Wiles (0-1), a 2012 first-round pick, tossed 5.1 innings, giving up five hits and three runs while striking out two. Eric Brooks and Josh McElwee, both returnees from 2012, allowed four hits and one run for the remainder of the game, keeping the win within reach.

Onaka, making his season debut, went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI sacrifice fly. Janluis Castro, the Indians offensive highlight of the season thus far, collected one more RBI on the season to bring his total up to three. 

Garia, Alberto Truinfel, Chuck Moorman and Jamie Jarmon each had a hit for the Indians.

Spokane players wore special limited edition light blue baseball caps to promote Prostate Cancer Awareness. A silent auction was held throughout the game for the game-worn hats, and all proceeds will benefit Ed Randall's Bat for the Cure.

The Indians will head over to face the Vancouver Canadians, the reigning Northwest League champions, for a quick three-game series before returning home for an eight-game homestand next week. The team will begin it's homestand against the Boise Hawks and will celebrate Kids Night & OTTO's Birthday Bash presented by Cloverdale Foods, Hits 96.1, 1280 FoxSports and Kids Newspaper. The game will begin at 6:30 PM with gates opening at 5:30 PM. Tickets for all Spokane Indians home games are available for purchase at the Indians Ticket Office, spokaneindians.com or ticketswest.com. Reserve your seats today by calling (509) 343-OTTO (6886).
