Spokane blows out Canadians

USA! USA! USA! The Spokane Indians started out the season as the whipping dogs, now they're in second place of the division, just a half game out from the lead. They've hit their stride, knocking the Canadians around yesterday.

SPOKANE, WA - The Indians may never have an easier win this season, scoring 10 runs in the first three innings to cruise past Vancouver 10-0 in front of 4,200 Indians fans.

Left fielder Jared Hoying started the scoring quickly for the Indians, turning a 4-0 walk into a run when first baseman Andrew Clark hit a line drive single. Hoying had another fantastic evening at the plate, safely getting on base three times, scoring each time. Hoying has raised his batting average from .158 to .258 in the last seven games.

Third baseman Michael Olt had a break out night for the Indians. After a first inning full count strike out that Olt questioned, he stepped up in the second inning and crushed a home run over the Gus Johnson Ford truck sign in right field. The home run was his third of the season. Olt stepped up again in the third inning and hit a line drive double into center field that scored another two runs. He finished the night with five runs batted in on two hits.

Look for more updates throughout the season, I'll try to cover this team pretty hard on the blog. Casey might cover the Everett AquaSox, or the Seattle Mariners. Both aren't as good as the Indians.

  1. Well, gus ford spokane donated a truck during one of the games, I guess hitting the sign was a "sign" that it is time to donate another truck!
