SPOKANE, Wash. – If you come to Avista Stadium this season, you can expect chaos. The last nine home games for the Spokane Indians have been nothing shy of entertaining. On Wednesday, Spokane scored seven first inning runs and lost the game. Those tables turned on Thursday. The Indians built a 4-0 lead, coughed up eight-consecutive runs, then stormed back with three in the sixth, two in the eighth, and one in the ninth to come back and beat Vancouver, 11-10, in walk-off fashion on Hawaiian Night presented by Pizza Factory.
- Isaac Collins went 5-for-6 with a pair of doubles and three RBI in the leadoff spot. His five hits were a career-high in his professional career and the most since he had a 6-for-6 performance in high school.
- Daniel Montano picked up his first three-hit night with Spokane and added three RBI, including the game-tying single in the eighth that scored two runs and the walk-off sacrifice fly. He’s now 6-for-14 in this series.
- Michael Toglia extended his league lead in homers (15) and RBI (60) as he launched a three-run homer in the first inning to give Spokane a 3-0 lead. This Indians have now won six-straight games when Toglia has homered.

After tying the game at 10 in the bottom of the eighth, Spokane decided they didn’t want to go to extra innings in back-to-back games. Like they have all series, they wreaked havoc on the base paths. Jack Blomgren worked a one-out walk and advanced to second on an errant pick-off attempt. Isaac Collins advanced him to third on a base hit to left field and Daniel Montano ended the game with a sacrifice fly to center, bringing home Blomgren and starting a Gatorade bath celebration. \
