Spokane Indians Pregame: Mariners affiliate Everett in for three-game set

UPDATED: Tue., June 26, 2018

The Spokane Indians (4-7) take on the Everett AquaSox (7-4) in the first of a three-game Northwest League series at Avista Stadium at 6:30 p.m.

Last night, the Indians won their second in row over Vancouver to earn their first series win while Everett’s league-best seven-game winning streak ended with loss to Tri-City in 11 innings.

The Indians send RHP Werner Leal (0-1, 13.50) out against RHP Carlos Hernandez (1-1, 9,95).

Leal, an international free agent signed in 2015, allowed three runs on three hits in two innings last Wednesday in his NWL debut. The Venezuela native has pitched in Low-A Hickory and High-A Down East this season. Overall, he is 1-3 with a 5.06 ERA.

AquaSox starter Hernandez has had an up and down start this season. HIs first start lasted just one-third of an inning as the righty allowed seven earned runs. Last Thursday, though, he tossed six shutout innings against Vancouver.
