EVERETT – Kellen Strahm went 2 for 4 with two runs and three RBIs and the Spokane Indians topped the Everett AquaSox 8-5 in the finale of a three-game Northwest League series at Funko Field on Thursday.

Cristian Inoa went 3 for 4 with a solo homer and three runs.

The Indians (17-11) maintained a two-game lead over Tri-City for first place in the North Division second-half standings.

Spokane broke out for four runs in the second inning off Everett starter Damon Casetta-Stubbs. With one down, Inoa doubled and Derwin Barreto walked before Strahm ripped a two-run double.

NWL leading hitter Blaine Crim (.363) struck out, but David Garcia reached on a catcher’s interference to extend the inning. Luis Asuncion hit a line-drive single to right to score Strahm, and Garcia scored on a throwing error by right fielder Trent Tingelstad.

Everett (13-15) answered in the bottom half as Indians starter Josh Javier walked a pair and Tingelstad doubled to the track in left with two down.

Inoa added to the lead with a two-out solo homer in the fourth, his second of the season.

Brennon Kaleiwahea answered for Everett with a two-run shot in the bottom half to make it 5-4.
