YAKIMA – Jimmy Comerota drove in a pair of runs and the Yakima Bears bullpen got the job done en route to a 7-6 victory over the Spokane Indians in Northwest League action Monday night.
The loss was a season-high sixth straight for the Indians and dropped them further in the basement of the East Division – two games behind the Bears – in the second-half standings.
Yakima jumped all over Indians starter Santo Perez, scoring four times in the bottom of the first inning to take the lead.
But the Indians (27-31, 7-13 2nd half) bounced back in the top of the second to knot the score at 4-4.
The Indians’ four runs came on two singles, three walks, a hit batter, two wild pitches and a groundout.
Bears starter Yiomar Camacho lasted just four outs. He was charged with all four second-inning runs.
But Bears relievers Greg Robinson, Willy Paredes, Justin Albert and Sammy De Los Santos were up to the task, allowing just two runs on four hits over the final 7 2/3 innings.
