Indians fall in home openerPosted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - A near record crowd watched the Spokane Indians fall to 10-2 to the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes on Monday night at Avista Stadium.
More than 7,000 people paid to see the game, making it the largest crowd at an Indians game in ten years. The Indians started well, they just couldn't sustain through nine innings. In the first inning, the Indians scored as center fielder Craig Gentry picked up the walk, left fielder Grant Gerrard singled to right and then Chris Davis notched up an RBI on a fielder's choice. But Salem-Keizer scored four runs in the fourth inning and three in the sixth.
The Indian's will get a rematch against the Volcanoes tonight (Tuesday) at 6:30 p.m. at Avista Stadium.
