Billigen Strikes Again: Indians Lose in 11

SPOKANE, Wash. -- For a second night in a row, Brian Billigen dashed Spokane's hopes of a late inning victory as the Hillsboro Hops beat the Indians, 4-1, in ten innings on Tuesday night.  It's Spokane's fourth loss in a row at the hands of the Hops, dropping the Indians into a tie for first place in the Northwest League North Division second half standings at 12-14.

The Indians scored their solitary run in the bottom of the second inning on Barrett Serrato sacrifice fly, scoring Janluis Castro, who had tripled earlier in the inning.  The Hops answered in the top of the fourth on a passed ball by Spokane catcher Joe Jackson.  The game remained tied at 1-1 until the top of the eleventh inning, when Billigen took Indians reliever Ricardo Rodriguez deep to right field for a 3-run homerun.  The Indians stranded two runners in the bottom of the inning as Hillsboro (15-11) won for the fourth night in a row and pulled within one game of first place Salem-Keizer in the South Division.

The Indians continue their eight-game homestand with the Tri-City Dust Devils on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  The series finale on Friday on game will be broadcast live on SWX (over-the-air 6.2, Comcast 115, TimeWarner 306, Cable One 466, Davis Cable 514, and via the "Watch SWX" app).
