HILLSBORO, OR - Trailing the Hillsboro Hops 4-0 entering the ninth inning, the Spokane Indians tied the game in dramatic fashion before completing a 6-5 comeback win in eleven innings at Ron Tonkin Field on Sunday evening. 

Dylan Moore got the Indians on the scoreboard in the ninth, sending a base hit to left and bringing home Leon Bryd. Still down 4-1 and down to their final out, Indians catcher Tyler Sanchez launched a game-tying three-run homer to left.? The Hops stranded a runner on second in the bottom half of the inning, and the teams went to extra innings tied at 4-4.

After a scoreless tenth, the Indians posted two runs on back-to-back wild pitches with runners on third in the eleventh inning.

Down 6-4 in the bottom of the eleventh, Hops outfielder Zach Hoffpauir led off the inning with his first Hillsboro home run to cut the deficit to one run. A single and a throwing error left two runners in scoring position for Fernery Ozuna, who grounded out for the final out, giving the Indians a 6-5 comeback win.

With the win, the Indians improve to 13-12 on the season while the Hops fall to 14-11. The fifth and final game of the series is Monday night at 7:05 p.m.
