Spokane Indians score two in ninth, one in 10th to defeat Eugene Emeralds

UPDATED: Mon., Aug. 19, 2019, 10:45 p.m.

Just as they had for most of the last four games, the Spokane Indians batters struggled to get much offense going against the Eugene Emeralds on Monday. But in the eighth, they showed signs of strength, hitting three hard outs. And in the ninth, with two outs, Obie Ricumstrict on first base and Cristian Inoa down to his last strike, the Indians’ No. 9 hitter lofted a home run that barely cleared Avista Stadium’s left-field wall to tied the game at 4, and Luis Asuncion’s RBI single in the 10th gave the Indians a 5-4, walk-off victory.

Spokane Chiefs release Bailey Brkin and Kaden Hanas, both 20-year-olds

UPDATED: Mon., Aug. 19, 2019, 6:33 p.m.

With training camp and the 2019-20 season approaching, the Spokane Chiefs have released two 20-year-old players, goaltender Bailey Brkin and forward Kaden Hanas, to give the team some overage flexibility. Both cleared Western Hockey League waivers and are free agents. Brkin appeared in 52 regular-season games during the 2018-19 campaign with a 2.75 goals-against average and started all 15 of the Chiefs’ playoff games with a 2.55 GAA. The Chiefs addressed their goaltending by acquiring Czech goalie Lukas Parik in the import draft.
