Spokane Indians back in first place

How about that boys? These Canadians have some pretty terrible pitching. The win puts Spokane in first place of the Northwest League East Division.

SPOKANE, WA - While a sold-out crowd of 6,845 feasted on $1 hot dogs, Pepsi products and ice cream sandwiches thanks to Yoke's Fresh Markets and 92.9 ZZU, the Indians feasted on the Vancouver bullpen for seven runs in the last two innings to win 9-5.

Indians starting pitcher Nicholas McBride was up and down all night, giving up three runs on six hits. The Indians infield defense helped McBride, keeping six runs from scoring. The Canadians stranded a total of 15 base runners tonight. After McBride turned the game over in the fifth, the Indians bullpen combined for six strike outs, and allowed only one run.

After Vancouver pulled Joseph in the sixth, the Indians bats went to work. Trailing 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh, shortstop Jurkison Profar hit a hard double to center field, followed by a walk by third baseman Michael Olt. First baseman Clark Murphy drove them both in on a double to center field. Murphy lit up the IHOP Sign tonight, giving everyone free pancakes by going 4-4 with four RBIs. The Indians went on to score three more runs in the seventh and two in the eighth to win the game.

Have you been to these feast nights? Some people bring bread bags and fill them with hot dogs... probably to feed themselves until the next Family Feast Night that the Indians put on.
