Clark does it all in Indians’ 8-2 win

LeDarious Clark gave the Spokane Indians the boost they needed Monday, even before he extended his long hitting streak. Clark finished 2 for 3 with two runs, two runs batted in and two stolen bases – and made a potential game-changing play in left field – as the Indians bounced back from Sunday’s 11-2 loss for an 8-2 victory over the Boise Hawks in Northwest League play at Avista Stadium.

Boise Hawks own basepaths in 11-2 win over Indians

The Boise Hawks had so many hits and base runners Sunday that their batters were looking to take a break. “This was a crazy game,” cleanup hitter Kevin Padlo said after the Hawks collected 21 hits and 30 base runners during an 11-2 victory over the Spokane Indians (9-9). “I’ve never seen so many base runners. I sat down after my fifth at-bat and I was like, ‘All right, I think I’m done for the day,’ and then I get another at-bat in the ninth inning. It was crazy.”

Easy for Indians

After sweating through walk-off wins on Thursday and Sunday, Spokane Indians manager Tim Hulett confided that he’d love to finally win a game by four or five runs. The Indians answered their skipper’s wish on Monday, pounding out seven extra-base hits during an 8-3 win over the Hillsboro Hops at Avista Stadium.

Indians win on Sanchez’s homer

The Spokane Indians executed a perfect hit-and-run play in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday. Tyler Sanchez hit the ball, and he and base runner Dylan Moore ran home.

Hillsboro beats Spokane Indians 10-3

The last time Jared Miller pitched and won a game in the Northwest League, a bit more was at stake. Miller baffled the Spokane Indians for six innings Friday night as the Hillsboro Hops cruised to a 10-3 victory at Avista Stadium 24 hours after losing the season opener in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Indians score in bottom of ninth to win opener over Hops

Dylan Moore’s professional baseball debut developed into the perfect setup for what he called a surreal moment. Moore’s two-out, run-scoring single in the bottom of the ninth inning Thursday made the Spokane Indians a winner in their Northwest League opener at Avista Stadium.

Indians expect to contend again

There are no guarantees during any Northwest League baseball season, but it’s all but certain that the Spokane Indians won’t get out of the gates as quickly as they did in 2014. After all, last year’s Indians became the first Spokane team to start a season 13-2 since the 1911 group.

For 25 seasons, Ruben Marcilla has painted signs at Avista Stadium – now a fading art in baseball

Ruben Marcilla started painting the signs on Avista Stadium’s outfield fence when the plywood was new, marking off sections that would become insurance and grocery ads so big and bold the farthest-back fan could see them. From his vantage points along the outfield wall, Marcilla has watched interns and grounds crews come and go and the Spokane Indians’ 1958 stadium undergo modernization. But the sign painter still uses brushes older than the athletes who’ll pound the sod after he’s packed them up. He still shows up every spring to do a job that, in many ballparks and many other places, has been relegated to the tools of mass production.

Avista invites Seahawks fans

Spokane Seattle Seahawks fans are invited to Avista Stadium on Friday to take part in the “human 12” on Avista Stadium field. Participants can arrive at 11 a.m. to start forming the number 12.

Clark: That’s one solution to bloated government

I couldn’t be more impressed by the $2.8 million upgrade being planned for Spokane Indians Stadium* by the county. (* I truly hate using that sterile, commercialized A-word when referring to the name of our beloved ball field.)

Pitcher’s two hits boost Eden Prairie

New members to be added to Rim

A father-daughter organist team and a former Spokane County commissioner are the next to be honored on the Spokane Indians' Rim of Fame at Avista Stadium, the team announced Wednesday. Norm Thue started at the stadium when it opened in 1958, playing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and leading cheers like "charge!" When he left, his daughter Normalu Cooper took over and was the organist until 1992. Cooper will attend Tuesday's season-opening Indians game for the Rim of Honor ceremony.
