Spokane Indians in first place

I posted earlier this month about how the Spokane Indians had been struggling to start the season. Well not anymore, they're in the first place of the NWL East.

SPOKANE, WA - Teams that start 1-7 are usually not in the same sentence as first place, but the Indians can now say the two phrases together. Tonight the Indians beat the Boise Hawks 8-3, and along with Yakima's win against Tri-cities it gave the Indians sole possession of first place in the Northwest League East.

Indians starting pitcher Nicholas McBride picked up his first win of the season, pitching five innings, while allowing only two earned runs on five hits. Relief pitchers Colby Killian and Zach Osborne pitched four shutout innings to finish the game.

Remember the school of thought that you shouldn't overreact during a baseball season because it's so freaking long? Well this pretty much illustrates my point.
