A sampling from the past week of posts in the S-R blog SportsLink at spokesman.com/ sportslink.
6: Josh Wright
Monday: The Spokane Indians remained in first place in the Northwest League’s North Division for the entire first half. Technically speaking, Vancouver sneaked ahead of Spokane by one-half game for 6 hours on Monday by defeating Tri-City in an afternoon game. But the Indians, knowing they had to beat Everett at night to keep Vancouver from winning the title, got the job done with great pitching by Derek Thompson and Shane McCain, solid defense and just enough timely hitting.
Thursday: Dominic Davis, a speedy athlete from California’s Bishop Alemany High School, told Scout.com that he will sign with the Cougars over scholarship offers from schools such as UCLA, USC and Washington.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Davis plays running back in high school but could make the switch to receiver at WSU much like former running backs Rickey Galvin and Calvin Green.
As always, there are the caveats that Davis’ announcement isn’t binding and, according to Scout.com, he still hasn’t visited the school.
