Spokane's errors costly in 4-2 loss to Boise

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, WA -- The Spokane Indians' time at the top of the Northwest League standings was shortlived, losing to the Boise Hawks 4-2 Tuesday night at Avista Stadium.  The loss drops the Indians from first to third in the NWL East Division standings.

The Indians got off to a strong start in the first inning on a Michael Olt's first homerun as a pro baseball player.  Spokane added another run in the bottom of the second inning on a sacrifice fly by Alejandro Selen to take an early 2-0 lead.

Boise was able to capitalize on four Spokane errors.  Alvaro Ramirez singled in George Matheus in the top of the third inning and an errant throw by right fielder Yefry Castillo allowed Kyung Min-Na to score a second run.  The Indians' defensive woes continued when shortstop Jurickson Profar unleashed a wild throw to first base on an infield single, while Micah Gibbs scored from third.  Richard Jones added some insurance for Boise when he belted his third homerun in the bottom of the 8th to cap the scoring. Spokane loaded the bases in the bottom of the 9th, but pinch hitter Jake Skole popped out to end the threat.

Following a disastrous one 1-7 start to their Northwest League season, the Indians had rebounded by winning 8 of their next 9 games to take sole possession of first place.  The currently sit alone in third place, just half a game behind division leaders Boise and Yakima.
