Emeralds top Indians third straight night

The Eugene Emeralds are returning to their early-season form, which should put the Northwest League’s South Division on alert.

Streaking LeDarious Clark sparks Indians past Boise

LeDarious Clark was leading the Northwest League in just about every offensive category before Wednesday night’s game, so he muscled up to add another. Clark finished 4 for 5 with two solo home runs as the Indians (12-9) completed a 4-1 Northwest League series win over the Boise Hawks (7-14) with a 9-0 rout at Avista Stadium.

Clark does it all in Indians’ 8-2 win

LeDarious Clark gave the Spokane Indians the boost they needed Monday, even before he extended his long hitting streak. Clark finished 2 for 3 with two runs, two runs batted in and two stolen bases – and made a potential game-changing play in left field – as the Indians bounced back from Sunday’s 11-2 loss for an 8-2 victory over the Boise Hawks in Northwest League play at Avista Stadium.

Boise Hawks own basepaths in 11-2 win over Indians

The Boise Hawks had so many hits and base runners Sunday that their batters were looking to take a break. “This was a crazy game,” cleanup hitter Kevin Padlo said after the Hawks collected 21 hits and 30 base runners during an 11-2 victory over the Spokane Indians (9-9). “I’ve never seen so many base runners. I sat down after my fifth at-bat and I was like, ‘All right, I think I’m done for the day,’ and then I get another at-bat in the ninth inning. It was crazy.”
