Spokane Indians give up two in ninth, lose 3-2 to Hillsboro Hops

HILLSBORO, Oregon – Jorge Perez drove in his second run of the game with two out in the ninth inning and the Hillsboro Hops defeated the Spokane Indians 3-2 on Saturday night in a Northwest League baseball game.

Perez’s single scored pinch-runner Dan Swain from second base to cap a two-run rally against Indians reliever Emmanuel Clase, who had not allowed an earned run in five previous appearances.

Joey Rose opened the Hillsboro ninth with a double and was replaced by pinch-runner Jose Caballero, who scored from third on Francis Martinez’s one-out single. Swain replaced Martinez and moved to second on a fielder’s choice before scoring the walk-off run.

Perez’s RBI single gave the Hops (10-6) a 1-0 lead in the second inning.

Curtis Terry’s two-run home run gave the Indians (6-10) a 2-1 lead in the third inning and that scored stood until the bottom of the ninth.

Indians starter Seth Nordlin allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings. Chandler Sanburn and Sean Chandler both pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings.

The Indians have lost the first two games of the five-game road series after winning four of their last five on their most recent homestand.
