Until the past three days, the Spokane Indians had played well on the road and extremely well against Northwest League South Division team. That has changed with three consecutive losses against Salem-Keizer at Volcanoes Stadium, including Saturday's 6-0 setback. Spokane has been outscored 21-3 in the last three games to see its road record go from 6-4 to 6-7 and its record against the South drop from 9-2 to 9-5. Spokane's bats had been hot since a 10-9 win over Everett on June 30, just five days after the Indians' other shutout of the season (4-0 against Vancouver). The Volcanoes lead the five-game series 3-1 heading in to Sunday's finale. Spokane will begin a three-game home series against the Tri-City Dust Devils on Monday. Read story
