Tri-City took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning after Paulsen's blast. The Indians would come battling back and scored four unanswered runs off of Jean Cosme in his debut with the Dust Devils. Sherten Apostel drove in all four of Spokane's runs, including a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning that ended up being the difference in the game. Tri-City starter Roman Perez got a no-decision after having one of his best outings of the season, tossing five scoreless innings with six strikeouts.
