Hops’ big seventh inning sinks Spokane

The first meeting between the Spokane Indians and Hillsboro Hops went in the Hops' winning column, but Spokane definitely had its chances. The Indians rapped out 12 hits, tying their best effort in the last 10 games, but couldn't get the big hit when they had runners in scoring position during the first three innings. The tone was set in the first inning, when Spokane loaded the bases with nobody out and didn't score. The defeat also ended Spokane's slim hopes of earning a first-half postseason berth in the North Division. Luckily for the Indians, they can make the playoffs with a good second-half run. The second half begins Tuesday at Avista Stadium against two-time defending Northwest League champion Vancouver. The Canadians are 4-2 against Spokane this year and still have a slight shot at catching Everett for the North's first-half title. Read story
