EVERETT, WA: Spokane wasted no time getting on the board as Jimmy Joyce gave up a leadoff home run to Eddy Diaz. The Indians would tack on two more runs after a collision at first base between Bladimir Restituyo and Everett's Dariel Gomez allowing two more runs to score making it 3-0 before an out was recorded.
After the first inning, Joyce sat down twelve Spokane hitters in a row before finally allowing a hit in the top of the fifth. The nine strikeouts were a season-high for Joyce and doubled his season total which now sits at 18.
The Everett offense would collect six hits tonight as Andy Thomas had two knocks including a single to left field scoring Cole Barr in the bottom of the eighth. Gomez, Barr, Axel Sanchez, and Victor Labrada also collected hits.
Center Fielder Spencer Packard walked to extend his on-base streak to a whopping seventeen games.
The bullpen pitched nicely in relief of Joyce as Brendan McGuigan and Max Roberts pitched a total of three innings, allowing just three hits and striking out five. McGuigan has a 1.93 ERA in 4.2 innings pitched with the AquaSox this season. Catcher Andy Thomas also threw out two runners keeping the Frogs in the game.
The final score would end up being 4-1 Spokane.
