SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Indians' designated hitter Todd McDonald hit a game-tying, two-RBI double in the sixth inning, but the Eugene Emeralds snuck past Spokane by a score of 4-3 in front of 4,647 fans at Avista Stadium on $100 Strikeout Night presented by Banner Bank and KXLY-AM 920.

Down 3-1, McDonald stepped up to the plate to line a deep double to center field to bring Dylan Moore and Sherman Lacrus home. The Australian-born power-hitter had his first two-hit game as a Spokane Indian, also collecting a single earlier in the contest.

He exited the game with a tie score for Jason Richman, who allowed Eugene's game-deciding run to earn his third loss of the season. Adam Choplick struck out three in the ninth and lowered his ERA to 2.04.
