Indians Top AquaSox 8-3 For Back-To-Back Wins

Posted: Updated:
By The Spokane Indians

Spokane, WA - Nick Gardewine earned his team-high sixth win this season while striking out eight and allowing just two hits in six innings as the Spokane Indians beat the Everett AquaSox, 8-3, in front of 6,032 fans at Avista Stadium on Saturday night. It was Fireworks Night presented by Toyota, KAYU FOX 28, 1050 The KEY and 101.1 Rock 'N' Rolls Greatest Hits.

Gardewine's eight strikeouts were a season high, and his six innings worked matched his longest outing of the year. He struggled in his last four starts, allowing 20 runs in his past four outings, but finally found his groove in his 10th start of the season. It helped, considering the run support was backing him all night long despite walking two.

Juremi Profar hit his second home run of the season, a two-run fly ball to left field. He also had an RBI double in the eighth inning. He has 28 RBI this season, and he is batting .272.

Diego Cedeno had his second successful night in a row, garnering two hits and an RBI. Morgan, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Pepe Cardona added in a single RBI in the win. Morgan is batting .455 in his first three games with the team. Luke Tendler singled home Josh Morgan and Jose Trevino in the first inning.

Reed Garrett, recently removed from the starting rotation after nearing his pitch limit, pitched two innings in relief and allowed one run. Johnny Fasola allowed two runs on three hits to close out the game.

The Spokane Indians will head on the road for the next six games, with the next three coming against Everett and the latter against the Tri-City Dust Devils. You can listen to all Indians away games on SportsRadio 1510 KGA with the Voice of the Indians, Mike Boyle.

The Indians will return home on Saturday, August 16th against the Tri-City Dust Devils for the final Yoke's $1 Family Feast Night of the season, presented by Yoke's Fresh Market and 92.9 ZZU.
