Everett Handles Indians; Skid Reaches Four In Row Spokane Leaves 10 Men On Base In Absorbing First Shutout, 3-0
It was nothing doing for the Spokane Indians in their attempt to put the brakes on a mounting losing skid.
The Everett AquaSox thwarted the Indians at every turn Monday night to pull out a 3-0 Northwest League baseball victory and pull Spokane into the North cellar with them.
With Spokane’s fourth straight loss and Everett’s second straight win, both teams are 6-12.
It wasn’t that Spokane didn’t have chances to avert its first shutout of the season. The Indians left 10 men stranded, two in each of four innings.
William Roland went 3 for 3 and Tyrone Frazier 2 for 3 to account for all of Spokane’s hits.
Everett parlayed a leadoff double by Chad Sheffer and Jose Amado’s single into a first-inning run, used a bases-loaded walk for an unearned run in the third and capped the scoring on Dusty Wathan’s squeeze bunt in the eighth inning.
Amado continues to terrorize Spokane. He is 8 for 16 with two doubles, a triple, a home run and four RBIs in four games against the Indians.
