SPOKANE, Wash. – Spokane’s scorching hot August ended in the most fitting way possible: With another Redband Rally and come from behind victory. The Indians scored three runs in the seventh to upend Tri-City, 4-2, in the series opener on Bark in the Park Night & Player Poster Giveaway presented by Pizza Factory. With Everett’s loss, Spokane is now just one game out of first place in the High-A West.
- Hunter Stovall finished 2-for-4 and drove in the winning run with a two-out, two-run single in the seventh.
- Isaac Collins tied the game in that seventh inning with a base knock to right field, part of a multi-hit night atop the Spokane order
- Daniel Montano collected three hits, his fifth three-hit night of the month. He finished August batting .387 with 14 RBI.
BY THE NUMBERS
- Hunter Stovall extended his hitting streak to 19 games. It’s the longest hitting streak for a Spokane player since Royce Bolinger’s 23-game hitting streak during the 2012 season.
- Chris McMahon piggybacked Peter Lambert and pitched the final six innings to pick up his league-leading ninth victory. The former Miami Hurricane has piggybacked off Lambert twice this month and finished the game both times. His first appearance, he gave up one run in seven innings. On Tuesday, he gave up one run in six innings, striking out seven.
- Spokane finishes the month of August with a whopping 20-6 record.
Like most late inning rallies, it all started with a walk. After Daniel Cope reached on the free pass, Jack Blomgren moved him along with a base hit, before Isaac Collins drove him in to tie the game at two. With runners on second and third and two outs, Hunter Stovall laced one to right field that scored both runners and gave Spokane another victory.
