Spokane Indians shut out at Eugene 6-0

EUGENE – Three Eugene Emeralds pitchers combined to shut out the Spokane Indians 6-0 on Friday night.

Bryan Hudson (1-0) gave up only one hit over the first five innings with Michael Knighton and Tommy Nance completing the shutout, the first against the Indians (4-4).

Spokane Tyler Phillips (1-1) threw five scoreless in his debut on June 18 but Friday night gave up five runs, four earned, on eight hits and two walks while striking out eight in 3 2/3 innings.

The Emeralds (5-3) put together four hits along with a hit batter to score four runs in the third. Andruw Monasterio singled to center to drive in two runs and was on third with one out when Chris Pieters doubled. Wladimir Galindo’s line single brought in Pieters.

Carlos Garay, who had three of the Indians’ four hits, singled to center to lead off the fourth inning for Spokane’s first hit. Seth Spivey was hit by a pitch but a double play and a ground out ended the threat.

In the bottom of the fourth, Eugene added an unearned run via a single, walk and then a throwing error by first baseman Garay.

Kelvin Vasquez relieved Phillips in the fourth and retired seven consecutive batters, four by strikeout.

C.D. Pelham gave up the final run in the seventh, walking Kevonte Mitchell, who stole second before advancing to third and then scoring on two wild pitches. Pelham struck out two, running the Indians’ total to 14.

The Indians hit into three double plays and left seven runners on base.

The five-game series, tied 1-1, continues Saturday night at 7:05.
