SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Everett AquaSox put a damper on the Spokane Indians opening homestand with a three-game sweep culminating in a 11-4 win at Avista Stadium on Thursday night.

The AquaSox (7-1) jumped out to a two-run lead in the top of the second inning on a Drew Jackson single down the line to rightwith two men on, he was thrown out trying to reach second and former Washington State catch PJ Jones flew out to end the inning for Everett.

The Indians (3-5) answered back in the bottom of the frame with two runs of their own. Tyler Sanchez singled and Ti'Quan Forbes doubled to put men on second and third. Diego Cedeno grounded out to the shortstop to advance the runners and cut into the lead, and then a controversial infield single for Ledarious Clark scored Forbes to tie the game. 

Clark finished the game 4-for-5 with two triples, 2 runs, an RBI and 3 stolen bases to lead Spokane.

Then the AquaSox turned on the bats in the third inning to take a 9-2 lead.

Yordi Calderon led off with a deep hit to center field that Darius Day couldn't bring in to put a man on second. Jordan Cowan gave Everett runners on the corners as his sac bunt turned into an infield single when Indians second baseman Leon Byrd couldn't get his foot on the bag in time on the play. Those two plays proved to be costly as outs turned into pressure for starter Emerson Martinez.

Braden Bishop scored Calderon with a single to left to take the lead, then Corey Simpson hit a bases-loaded single to center to score two more AquaSox and begin the onslaught. When all was said and done Everett had a seven-run inning to put the game out of reach early. 

Both teams added two more runs each, but the damage was done for the Indians.

Spokane hits the road for a five-game series with Salem-Kaizer starting tomorrow at 6:35 p.m. PT. Texas Rangers No. 4 overall pick Dillon Tate will make his first professional appearance for the Indians as tomorrow's starter.

Spokane's next home game will be July 4 vs. the Boise Hawks.
