VANCOUVER, B.C. - Vancouver pitching took center stage on Friday afternoon as three arms did not allow an Indians runner to reach third base as the Canadians shut out Spokane 4-0.
Starter Taylor Cole was fantastic over his four innings of two-hit baseball, striking out a season high six Spokane batters before turning the ball over to the Canadians bullpen. From there Kyle Anderson (3.0 IP) and RHP Tucker Donahue (2.0 IP) would scatter six hits over the final five innings and not allow a Spokane base runner to reach third base.
Offensively, Vancouver managed just five hits in the game, but made them count with 3B Jason Leblebijian hitting a two-run double down the right field line that scored both 1B Balbino Fuenmayor (double) and RF Nick Baligod (single) as part of a three-run, bottom of the 6th inning.
Spokane continues its five-game stay at Vancouver Saturday at 7:05 p.m.
