Northwest League All-Star game ends in scoreless tie


EUGENE – It seemed a bit familiar: A baseball all-star game tied in extra innings and no reason to continue playing.

That was the case in the 2002 Major League All-Star game, which was called after 11 innings with the scored tied at 7.

It was also the case Tuesday night when the Northwest League All-Star Game was called after 10 scoreless innings.

There may have been no winning team but the Spokane Indians, with eight players in the game, had a full share of small successes.

In a game that was clearly dominated from the pitching mound, two Indians pitchers faced seven batters without allowing a hit. Richelson Pena struck out all three batters he faced and Shane McCain threw 1 1/3 innings, striking out one.

At the plate, Indians players had four of the North team’s five hits. Jose Trevino, who was named the MVP, was the only player with two hits (both doubles); league-leading hitter Seth Spivey went 1 for 2; and Eduard Pinto had a double.

Indians catcher Marcus Greene went 0 for 2 and outfielder Luke Tendler went 0 for 3 with a walk.

Relief pitcher Johnny Fasola was the only one of the eight Indians who did not play.

After the three-day All-Star break the Indians continue their current homestand with three games against Everett, beginning Thursday.
