With one down in the seventh, Jorge Barrosa tripled and Leodany Perez walked for the Hops (18-25). Perez stole second and the throw by Willie MacIver got away, allowing Barrosa to scamper home. Alexander followed with a soft line drive single to plate Perez.

The Indians pulled within two in the eighth on a bases-loaded comebacker fumbled by pitcher Joe Jones, but Jack Blomgren grounded into an inning-ending double play.

Spokane starter Nick Bush (4-2) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts over six innings. 

Brenton Doyle went 3 for 4 with a solo home run for the Indians (20-25). Michael Toglia and Hunter Stovall added a pair of hits apiece. 

The series continues Friday at 7:05 p.m.
