Indians’ offense sputters in loss

The Spokesman-Review

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Jason Kudlock had two doubles, bumping his average up to .625, but struck out swinging when it mattered most in the Spokane Indians’ 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canadiens on Monday night.

Kudlock failed to get his fourth hit of the night in the top of the eighth with the tying run in scoring position and one out. Michael Olt popped up to end the inning and the rally.

Vancouver pitcher Nathan Long tossed 5 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and one run. He struck out six on the night. Mike Hart picked up his second save of the season.

Spokane starter Zack Osborne gave up two runs in 3 1/3 innings. He was pulled in the bottom half of the fourth after letting both runs score in consecutive at-bats.

The Indians’ lone run came in the top of the second on a fielding error. Spokane was 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position.
