SPOKANE, Wash. -- A six-run seventh inning spurred the Spokane Indians to a 8-7 comeback win over the visiting Boise Hawks on the Fourth of July at Avista Stadium, but it was Dylan Moore who set off the fireworks.

Indians (9-8) starter Cody Palmquist kept things close until the fifth inning, working his way out of jams his defense caused him thanks to costly errors in big early moments. Palmquist was only charged for one earned run in the six that he gave up to the Hawks (6-11) over 4-2/3. 

Adam Choplick closed out the fifth inning and went on to pitch two more scoreless innings for Spokane to keep them in the game. 

In the bottom of the seventh the bounces began to go the Indians' way.

Diego Cedeno scored Moore after his leadoff double with an RBI single to center field to put runners on the corners. A second infield single in the inning loaded the bases with two outs. Dean Long hit one deep to right center that fell just in front of the wall and the center fielder to clear the bases and bring Spokane within two runs.

Ledarious Clark tied things up for Spokane a few moments later with a two-run homer to left center field over the Budweiser sign. The Indians center fielder extended his hitting streak to 15 games with the blast.

Dario Beltre pitched a scoreless top of the eighth for Spokane before the Indians' bats went to work again. 

Moore was hit by a pitch to start the bottom of the frame, he then stole second and was handed third a couple of pitches later on a Boise wild pitch. It was Cedeno coming up big again to give Spokane its first lead of the game with another RBI single to center field.

The Hawks didn't go away quietly though. Luis Parra couldn't close things out for the Indians and let the lead go on a Luis Castro sacrifice fly to right, with Jamie Potts throw to the plate coming a few steps too late. 

Spokane capitalized on their chance to end things in the bottom of the ninth.

Long hit an infield single and Clark was gifted a single as the shortstop couldn't find a lazy pop fly just out of the infield in the lights. Leon Byrd walked to load the bases for Moore. The Indians' shortstop hit a hard grounder to the right of the shortstop in the hole, he couldn't field it cleanly to and Long crossed to plate for the walk-off win.

Moore finished the night 1-for-3 with two runs and the game-winning RBI. Long led Spokane going 2-for-3 with three RBI and the game-winning run. Clark ended his night 2-for-5 with two RBI on his home run.

Both teams will meet again tomorrow for game two of their series at Avista at 3:30 p.m. PT.
