SPOKANE -- The Spokane Indians will play for the Northwest League title after taking down the Yakima Bears 6-1 on Tuesday night at Avista Stadium.
The Indians scored four runs in the first inning, tacked on one more in the fourth, and another in the fifth. That was more than enough to sweep the three-game series against the Bears.
The Indians actually scored six runs on just four hits. Yakima pitchers didn't help their own cause by walking nine Spokane batters on the night.
Michael Olt, Jurickson Profar, Jared Hoying, Josh Richmond, and Santiago Chirino all registered at least one run batted in.
Spokane starting pitcher Randol Rojas allowed only one run on six hits over six innings to pick up the win. Tim Steggall, Jimmy Reyes, and Colby Killian allowed only one hit combined in three innings of relief work.
The Indians face the Everett AquaSox in the league championship series starting on Thursday at Avista Stadium. First pitch is set for 6:30pm. It's the only home game of the series because of the Spokane County Interstate Fair.
