Salem-Keizer rallies to take another win from Spokane Indians

SALEM, Ore. – Salem-Keizer greeted Spokane reliever David Perez with a two-run seventh inning to go ahead and the Volcanoes scored their second straight victory over the Indians, 7-4, on Thursday night in a Northwest League baseball game.

The Indians had taken a 4-3 lead in the fourth inning after loading the bases with no outs and scored their pair of runs on ground outs.

They scored their other two runs in the third inning on Rougned Odor’s RBI double and a wild pitch.

Perez (1-4) gave up a single and walk to open the S-K seventh and, with the help of three steals in the inning, the Volcanoes took the lead with a ground out and sacrifice fly. Salem-Keizer stole six bases in the game.

The Volcanoes added the final two runs in the eighth against Kyle Hendricks, whose wild pitch on a third strike for what would have been the second out eventually allowed S-K to come up with the runs.

Catcher Yefry Castillo led the indians with two hits to increase his average to .317.
