HILLSBORO, OR – The Vancouver Canadians were stifled in a 12-1 loss against the Spokane Indians (Rockies) Saturday night at Ron Tonkin Field.

The Indians scored two in the third, six in the fourth, two in the fifth and two in the ninth to lead wire-to-wire. Vancouver didn’t help their cause; the C’s struggled with command and allowed a season-high 13 walks – six of which ended up scoring – to lose by their worst margin of the season.

MLB.com’s #23 Blue Jays prospect Will Robertson slugged his fifth homer of the year in the fourth to spoil the shutout but that would be all the offense could muster. Zac Cook doubled as part of a two-hit showing and Rafael Lantigua’s two-bagger provided the only other extra base hit.

Alejandro Melean will start for the Canadians in the finale tomorrow afternoon. Coverage begins with the Vancouver Canadians Pregame Show, powered by North Beach Agency, at 1:00 p.m. followed by first pitch at 1:05 p.m. on Sportsnet 650. Individual tickets for remaining home games in Hillsboro are available now at CanadiansBaseball.com.
