GAME THREAD: Indians-Hawks Doubleheader

Updated:

The Indians and Hawks will play a doubleheader (two seven-inning games) today. The doubleheader is being played to make up for a rainout on Thursday. It was the first rainout at Avista Stadium since Father's Day 2011.

Two names you might recognize in the Hawks' starting lineup are Trevor Gretzky and Jacob Hannemann. Gretzky is the son of Wayne Gretzky, as you might have guessed from the surname. Trevor is a left fielder that was drafted in the seventh round out of high school in 2011.

Hannemann is a BYU product. The center fielder and All-League West Coast Conference player was selected by the Cubs in the third round this year.

Here are the lineups for Game 1.

- Top 3rd: Indians 2 Hawks 0

A productive second inning for the Indians, who put together three hits and a walk for a pair of runs. Ryan Cordell led off the inning with a single, Janluis Castro followed with a walk and Alberto Triunfel bunted them over a base.

Marcus Greene followed by lacing a sharp single through the left side to score Cordell. Gabe Roa then went the other way and brought home Castro with a single to right to give the Indians a 2-0 lead.

Meanwhile, Collin Wiles is throwing a pretty decent game. The 2012 first-round pick worked around a double in the first and second, with a baserunning gaffe helping him escape the second unscathed.

The right-hander's offspeed stuff has been working for the most part and he has recorded four strikeouts through three innings.

- Bottom 4th: Indians 3 Hawks 0

The Indians tacked on a third run in the third on a ground-rule double by Janluis Castro down the left-field line. Evan Van Hoosier, who had singled to lead off the inning, scored from third.

Meanwhile, Wiles has set down seven straight and seems to be in command of his offspeed. A diving play in right by Ryan Cordell ended the fourth.

- Final: Indians 3-2

The Indians held on to win this one and get their first victory at home. Of course, it wasn't easy.

Josh McElwee came on in relief in the sixth and pitched tremendously after inheriting a bases loaded, no out situation. He struck out the first two he faced and induced a foul popup to the catcher.

McElwee ran into trouble in the seventh, though, allowing back-to-back singles. The righty responded by striking out the next two, but a walk and a run made things tense. He got out of the jam with a strikeout to end the game.

Wiles got the win, his first of his Single-A career. He threw 76 pitches and 50 strikes. The righty allowed five hits, but just one run. Wiles walked none.
