Despite Terry’s big night, Spokane Indians lose to Salem-Keizer

KEIZER, Ore. – Curtis Terry went 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs, but the Spokane Indians suffered a 6-4 defeat Sunday night to the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes in Northwest League play.

Salem-Keizer catcher Joey Bart, the parent San Francisco Giants’ first-round pick in the June draft, went 2-for-4 with two doubles to spark the Volcanoes (19-18), who had eliminated the Indians (16-21) from the NWL’s first-half race with a win Saturday.

Indians right-hander Scott Engler (2-2) allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings. He didn’t walk a batter and struck out three.

The Volcanoes’ Dalton Combs hit a two-run homer off Engler in the sixth to snap a 3-3 tie.

S-K right-hander Keenan Bartlett (1-2) earned the victory with four innings of relief. Bartlett allowed one run on three hits, with one walk and four strikeouts. Left-hander JJ Santa Cruz pitched the ninth for his first save.

Terry hit a solo home run in the first inning, giving the Indians their only lead. Starling Joseph also hit a solo shot for Spokane.

The teams wrap up the five-game series tonight.
