Spokane, WA - The Emeralds are red hot and the Indians haven't found a way to cool them down. Eugene took an early 3-0 lead and held on late over Spokane for their seventh consecutive victory over the Indians and 11th in a row overall in front of 4,229 fans at Avista Stadium for Bark in the Park Night #2 presented by University of Washington - Gonzaga University School of Medicine, KAYU FOX 28, 103.9 BOB FM, Magic 790, and Nspire Spokane.

The Ems scored twice in the first and once in the second against Alex Daniele (0-4) who struggled with command in his first home start this year. Spokane answered back quickly with a pair in the second on RBI singles from Anderson Tejeda and Preston Scott but single runs from Eugene in the fourth, sixth and eighth put the game out of reach.

The Indians scored their final run of the game in the eighth on an RBI base knock from Charles Leblanc that drove in Blaine Prescott who had reached on a triple to the gap in left-center. Carlos Garay reached in the ninth on a one-out single but Tejeda and Scott were retired to end the inning.

Mark Vasquez continued his great work out of the bullpen with four strong frames of relief as he struck out six without a walk while allowing just two runs. Newcomer Chris Dula punched out two in a scoreless ninth inning. The loss dropped Spokane to 8-10 in the second half and 27-29 overall.
