HILLSBORO, Ore. – Bo Takahashi assured the Spokane Indians’ struggles would continue on Wednesday at Ron Tonkin Field.

Takahashi allowed just one run on three hits and a walk in six innings of work to propel the Hillsboro Hops (17-10) to a 5-1 victory over Spokane in Northwest League play.

The loss was the seventh straight for the Indians, who fell to 9-18 in the second half. Spokane, which won the first half with a 19-19 record, dropped to 28-37 on the season.

The Hops pushed across all the runs they would need against Indians starter C.D. Pelham (0-5) in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Josh Anderson singled to left with one out and stole second. Anderson moved to third on a pop-up and Alexis Olmeda drilled a two-out single for the game’s first run. Olmeda stole second in front of a walk to Stephen Smith. Both runners moved up a base on an errant pickoff attempt by Pelham. Luis Veras followed with a single to score a pair and give the Hops a 3-0 lead.

The three hits in the inning were the only ones surrendered by Pelham, who allowed three runs – two earned – in four innings. He struck out four and walked two.

Spokane’s lone run came in the sixth inning on a sacrifice fly by Leody Taveras.

After an off day, Spokane will host Tri-City on Friday at 6:30 p.m.
