SPOKANE, Wash. -- Former Washington State pitcher Joe Pistorese tossed 1.2 innings of scoreless relief to pick up the win in his first professional appearance as the Everett AquaSox three runs in the final two frames to beat the Spokane Indians in front of 3,811 fans at Avista Stadium on Wednesday night.


Indians (3-4) starter Luke Lanphere only gave up three hits over five innings, striking out six, but the Spokane hitters failed to give him any run support despite drawing six walks over the first four innings. Lanphere's only scare came in the first when Yojhan Quevedo got on base on an error with two outs. The AquaSox (6-1) then hit back-to-back singles, but Quevedo was thrown out at home by Spokane right fielder Doug Votolato.


Pistorese came in with the bags full of Indians and two outs in the bottom of the sixth and got Ti'Quan Forbes to ground out to end one of Spokane's best scoring chances. The former Cougars starter then pitched a scoreless seventh and got an out in the eighth before coming out of the game.


Things remained scoreless until the eighth when Quevedo started the scoring with a sacrifice fly to left field to score Jordan Cowan. Rafael Fernandez added the second run of the inning when he scored on an error by Yeyson Yrizarri at second. 


Spokane threatened in the bottom of the eighth thanks to Leon Byrd doubling of the wall in left field and a Sherman Lacrus single to put runners on the corners, but Adam McKay grounded into an inning-ending 6-4-3 double play.


After Everett tacked on another run in the top of the ninth, the Indians got men on second and third, but LaDarius Clark grounded out to the shortstop to end the game.


Spokane hosts the AquaSox in the series finale tomorrow night, June 25, at Avista Stadium at 6:30 p.m. PT.
