Dominant pitching leads the way in 6-1 win
SPOKANE, Wash. – Spokane Indians players and coaches knew that if they kept playing hard, the victories would follow. That sentiment proved true on Wednesday night in front of 5,272 fans as the Indians beat Tri-City 6-1 on Harry Potter Night presented by US Linen & Uniform, 92.9 ZZU, and Nspire Magazine.
Indians batters didn’t collect their first hit of the game until the bottom of the third with a Curtis Terry single. Though they didn’t get on the board, the momentum carried over to the fourth. After a Yohel Pozo single and subsequent stolen base, Kole Enright homered on a line drive to centerfield giving the Indians a 2-0 lead that they wouldn’t relinquish.
The offensive outburst continued in the sixth, as the Indians added four runs, three of which came on a Curtis Terry infield single followed by two Tri-City errors.
Starting pitcher Cole Ragans was fantastic in his third start of the year, throwing four shutout innings and striking out six. Jacob Rogers hurled one scoreless inning, and reliever Reiver Sanmartin earned the win, his second of the year, allowing just one run in the final four frames.
The Indians will now head to Boise for a five game set against the Hawks.
