Mitchell Kilkenny allowed one run over 7⅔ innings Friday and the Spokane Indians ended a two-game skid, beating the Vancouver Canadians 4-1 in High-A West play in Hillsboro, Oregon.

Spokane (62-48) moved within one game of first-place Eugene (65-49), which split a doubleheader with third-place Everett (61-52). The Indians lead Everett by 2 1/2 games for the second playoff spot.

Kilkenny (8-1) scattered seven hits and struck out four.

Spokane took the lead in the third inning when Jack Blomgren scored on a groundout by Ezequiel Tovar. The Indians added another run in the sixth on an RBI single by Brenton Doyle that scored Isaac Collins.

Doyle finished 3 for 4. 

Vancouver cut Spokane’s lead when Spencer Horwitz singled home Zac Cook in the eighth. Horwitz extended his league-record hitting streak to 28 games. 

Javier Guevara’s two-run single in the ninth capped Spokane’s scoring. 

Spokane relief pitcher Dugan Darnell worked a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts for his 14th save.
