Indians win big; Celebrate stadium anniversary in homestand finale
SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Indians put up 15 hits, eight runs and along with excellent pitching, were able to down the Everett AquaSox 8-3 Friday night in front of a standing room only crowd of 6,827 at Avista Stadium.
The Indians evened their record on the season to 2-2.
The Indians went up 4-1 on an Eric Fry home run, his second on the season, scoring Matt West. Fry finished the night 1-4 with two RBI.
Indians starter Carlos Pimentel (1-0) lasted five innings, allowing just two hits and one run. Richard Bleier, the 6th round draft pick of the Rangers in this year's MLB First Year Player Draft, was stellar in three relief innings, allowing only one hit with three strikeouts.
Joey Butler opened up the bottom of the 6th with a triple; he was then driven in by a Jacob Kaase single. With the bases loaded, Everett's Marquis Pettis walked Doug Hogan, scoring Jared Bolden and securing the win for the Indians.
The Indians return to Avista Stadium tomorrow for the five game home stand finale against Everett. Tomorrow night is Avista Stadium 50th Anniversary Night,
